Smooth Progressions is Elon University's smoothest all-male A Cappella group, founded in 2013. We are one of seven a cappella groups at Elon. Starting in 2016 we released several singles including Sunshine and I Can't Feel My Face, and In 2019 we released our first album titled Cover Art. Since then we have had the opportunity to release an EP titled Mosaic and another album titled UNTITLED. All of which you can find on all major streaming platforms. Keep an eye out. We are getting ready to release two more albums this year!
In the Fall of 2012, Montez Brown (’15), with the assistance of Cody Schmidt (’15), set out to create a new, all-male a cappella group on a campus with an abundance of talent but a community that demanded expansion. With their combined musical and organizational skills, Montez and Cody received approval from the university to begin recruiting talent on Elon's campus.
Smooth Progressions premiered their arrangement of "Forget You" by Cee-Lo Green at Acapalooza, an annual fundraiser featuring all of Elon University's a cappella groups. The freshman group of 11 members made their mark in the community. Founder Montez Brown says "[he] wanted Smooth Progressions to mix things up on campus; create a new tradition."
Today, Smooth Progressions is home to a diverse group of male identifying students. We have continued the traditions from the founding group and have even added a few of our own to keep things interesting. Everyday Smooth Progressions works to be the best it can and always have fun making music!
"Joining Smooth Progressions was the best decision I have made since coming to college. It gave me a place to call home at Elon and an accepting group of guys that I am thankful to call my closest friends. Many people think the music is the biggest part of a cappella and while it is important, the best part of my experience has been the people and the community a cappella has created here at Elon."
