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!

Learn More About Us

Savannah Olroyd

Soprano/Alto

Savannah used to practice singing mainly by rocking out in the car and taking karaoke way too seriously. She was too preoccupied with playing her clarinet in school to join a choir. In 2022 she joined the Yale Citations during her postdoc to get more formal vocal training, and she fell in love with a cappella.
Outside of singing, Savannah enjoys crafts and games. She can be summoned by talking about rabbits.

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.

Esther Ho

Alto

Esther learned music since the age of 6, and she has performed in school orchestras, percussion ensembles, a cappella groups, and rock bands. Singing has also always been her favorite pastime.
She relocated to Salt Lake City in 2022 and joining Inversion has reignited her passion for music.

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!

Ian Shen

Baritone/Bass/Vocal Percussion

Ian started singing at age 16 when he signed on for an accoustic performance series at his high school and realized he had to sing too. His journey into a cappella began a few years later when a college friend peer pressured him into joining the extremely serious Disney-focused group known as the Aristocows as their bass and villain song specialist. Since then, he’s lived and worked in various locations across the country, but he’s always kept singing, notably spending a couple years with UC Berkeley’s Noteworthy during grad school. After returning to Utah and spending a few months tearing up the karaoke bar circuit, he’s excited to return to a cappella with Inversion and slot in wherever he’s needed. Outside of singing, Ian enjoys tabletop gaming, playing bass guitar, and writing music reviews online.

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.
