Sweet Signatures (Sweet Sigs) is Elon University’s oldest all-female a cappella group. The ensemble was founded in 2001 by fifteen women bound by their passion for singing. Today, the Sigs have grown and evolved into an established, successful ensemble with a strong musical presence both on and off-campus.
Sweet Sigs regularly entertain their campus community, compete in national competitions, host a cappella festivals with other university groups, take part in philanthropy events, sing for hired gigs, and record albums.
In the summer of 2021, Sweet Signatures released their most recent and ninth studio album, "XX" which features three studio-recorded tracks, seven virtually recorded tracks, and two live tracks. They released their single "Carolina On My Mind" which is featured on the album in the spring of 2021. In the spring of 2019, they released their album "Endless" featuring nine tracks. In the spring of 2017, they released "The Ri-Mix," and produced an accompanying music video featured on College A Cappella. In 2016 and 2014, Sigs released two feature-length albums, "Home Sweet Home," and "Let Go," respectively. In 2012, their first ever Christmas album, "Unwrapped," was released. "Love Affair" (2010) and "Coming Into Focus" (2007) were nominated for many CARAs (Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards) and received positive reviews from the a cappella review board. Both albums also had tracks selected for BOCA and SING, two national compilation CDs of the best annual a cappella recordings.
The group has also been commended for their live performances. In addition to competing in the 2017 ICCA Competition, Sigs placed 3rd overall and won “Best Choreography” in the 2009 SoJam competition and 2008 ICCAs.
Beyond their music, Sweet Sigs is a close-knit group of friends. Their love for music brings together this eclectic group of women from all over the country. In the spring of 2016, the Sigs celebrated their 15th year with a special concert featuring alumni.
