The Stanford Harmonics are a co-ed a cappella group from Stanford University in the United States. Known for their alternative rock repertoire and award-winning recordings, the Harmonics have garnered international recognition for their performances and have been featured on BOCA, Sing, and Voices Only a cappella compilations. The Harmonics are one of the few collegiate a cappella groups to own their own wireless microphone assortment and soundboard, and to have developed a live performance that includes the use of electronic distortion, sound effects and audience participation.

In 2006, the Harmonics won the A Cappella Community Awards for Favorite Mixed Collegiate Group and Favorite Scholastic Album. On December 4, 2008, they released their eighth studio album, Escape Velocity, which was the winner of three Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, including Best Mixed Collegiate Album. Along with the Tufts Beelzebubs and UPenn's Off The Beat, the Stanford Harmonics are considered to be one of the "Holy Trinity" of collegiate a cappella groups.[1]
