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 ad and a meet up in Kneaders. Now, we’ve performed for Salt Lake Governors, Local Church leaders, and were even featured in 2020’s virtual “Light the World” worldwide Christmas performances. We sing all year round and all over Salt Lake and Utah Counties. Talk to us about singing for your upcoming event!

Francy Phay (a.k.a. Su)

Soprano/Alto

Su recently relocated from the hot and humid country of Singapore to Salt Lake City. She graduated from the National University of Singapore and spent all four years singing in a collegiate a cappella group, Resonance. After graduation, Su continued performing with other talented alumni groups before taking a break. She is now excited to come back to a cappella and can’t wait to perform with Inversion. Apart from singing, Su enjoys eating out, hitting the gym, and trying to get affection from random cats and dogs.

Megan Watts

Mezzo Soprano/Alto

Megan is so excited to be in Inversion… again!  Megan was a member of Inversion in the spring/summer of 2017 but had to take some time off to finish school at the University of Utah and have the most adorable baby ever! 
Megan graduated from the U with a bachelor’s degree in music and is looking forward to performing with such a talented group of singers.  Megan is married to the studly James Watts, who also happens to be in the group.

Amy Shaw

Alto

Amy joins Inversion from sunny South Africa. She’s a business jet pilot by day and a (not so) undercover theater nerd by night. Back in SA, Amy grew up performing in musical theater productions with her mom. She later joined her older brother in a local band, renowned for its tight harmonies, playing bass and performing backing vocals.
In addition to the electric bass, Amy has played piano, saxophone, acoustic guitar, ukelele, and kazoo! She has always felt that voice is the greatest musical instrument and longed to join an a cappella group. Her recent move to the USA made that wish come true by planting her on Inversion’s doorstep in Salt Lake City.
Amy is also an enthusiastic outdoorsman, with years participating in skydiving, base jumping, rock climbing, and horse riding. These days she can most often be found exploring the mountains with her best bug, Atticus, the world’s greatest golden retriever.

Ryan Andersen

Tenor/Baritone/Vocal Percussion

Ryan has been singing since he can remember, along with his 6 older brothers! Growing up, he performed in over 10 musicals, with some of his favorite roles being: Fagin in “Oliver!”, Frog in “A Year With Frog and Toad”, Chef Louis in “The Little Mermaid”, and Frollo in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
Ryan joined Desperate Measures, a high school a cappella group back in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and was the music director his senior year, arranging the “Pokémon Go Theme” and “Young, Dumb, and Broke” by Khalid for the group. He was in choir all through school and is well trained in sight reading, music theory, and arranging music.
As our youngest member, Ryan brings contagious energy and positivity to rehearsal, and you’ll always catch him smilin’ and groovin’ on stage!

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 joined Inversion, and he’s been having a blast ever since.
