About Us

Inversion A Cappella is a group local to Salt Lake City. Inversion, in music, is a rearrangement of the top-to-bottom elements in an interval, a chord, or a melody. In Salt Lake City, it’s that nasty smog that gets trapped in the valley. We tie the two together in our name! Our group has been around since November 2015. It all started with a Craigslist add and a meet up in Kneaders. Now, we’ve performed for Salt Lake Governors, Local Church leaders, and were even finalists in a local YouTube Competition. We sing all year round and all over Salt Lake and Utah Counties. Talk to us about singing for your upcoming event!

Elisa Black

Soprano, Vocal Percussion
      Elisa enjoys international travel, but loves coming home to her native Utah. She spends most of her time planning trips, writing books (that she will one day publish maybe), running her own financial business, going out for sushi, solving math problems too hard for math teachers (what else do you do when you don’t have kids?), making lists, singing in Inversion, reading Harry Potter to her younger siblings, helping small businesses owners in South America, and making up memes for her instagram account: SingleMormonGirl.

James Watts

Bass, Vocal Percussion
      James started singing around the time he started speaking, and he really hasn’t stopped since. When James was a teenager, he was introduced to the world of a cappella through Voice Male’s “Up, Up And Away” album. After recovering the pieces of his blown mind, James made it his goal to one day be part of an a cappella band. While in college at the University of Utah, James finally saw that dream realized when he became the bass, vocal percussionist, and part-time music arranger for the U of U’s a cappella band, Infrared. Roughly a year after graduating from the U with a degree in Computer Engineering, James auditioned for Inversion, and he’s been having a blast ever since.

Rachel Kennedy Manis

Mezzo Soprano
     Rachel grew up in a musical family and has been singing since she was 3 years old. She’s been married for a year to the man of her dreams, Keith, and they live in West Valley. Rachel graduated from the University of Utah and is an Athletic Trainer at Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy and Hunter High School. She is a previous member of the Days of ’47 Royalty and now volunteers with their social media efforts. She loves sports, watching Netflix, and playing with her dog Lily.

Elicia Edwards

 Alto
      As one of the founding members of Inversion, Elicia has a deep love for singing. Though she does not have any formal vocal training, she grew up playing the piano and violin. She was raised in sunny South Texas and moved to Utah in 2007.
Elicia received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from BYU in 2012 and 2014 (Go Cougs)! During her last year of graduate school, she had the privilege of participating as the bass in BYU Noteworthy, where her love for a cappella was born. Elicia resides in Saratoga Springs with her husband, Wade, and their three furry babies – Link, Scout, and Rocky.

Greg Watts

Bass, Vocal Percussion
      Having graduated from college with a major in Business Management and a minor in Physics, Greg looked upon the world and said, “Yeah, a cappella should be my next thing.” He’s always had a love for the music style, although he is sad that he won’t be able to use his didgeridoo skills. He’s very happy that his wife, Kim, joined as well since he does seem to like her. He also enjoys paleontology and using his kitchen blowtorch, but not as much. He currently works as a freelance voiceover artist and there is no punch line in this sentence.

Kimber Watts

Alto
      Kim started out as an orchestra geek and played the upright string bass from 6th through 12th grades. In college, for no particular reason, she decided to start singing. There, she met her now brother-in-law James and her husband Greg. She is sorry for the large number of Watts in the group; they tend to stick together. She is a student of Materials Science and Engineering and will graduate with her bachelor’s degree in May 2019. She manages the Materials Characterization Lab at the U of U and crochets hats in her nonexistent “free” time.

Harrison Scoville

Baritone, Bass

     Harrison Scoville is a husband, forklift operator, and now a cappella group member. Since his first part in a play in the third grade he has loved performing. This is his first a cappella group, and he is so excited to be a part of it. He sings a bass/baritone part. He’s been married for 2 years to his awesome wife Julia. He currently is a forklift operator working on getting his commercial drivers license.
