VoiceMale is an all-male a cappella group based out of Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. Tracks from VoiceMale albums Propeller (2003), Ain't Done Overnight (2006), and Where's the Album? (2008) have appeared on the Best of Collegiate A Cappella (BOCA) compilation albums. In 2004, VoiceMale also received the award for Best All-Male Album of the Year from the Contemporary A Cappella Society (CASA) for their work on Propeller.

Samrat Chakrabarti, '97, was a member of VoiceMale; he went on to serve as a music director of Hyannis Sound, founder of Jyde, and member of Five O'Clock Shadow.

On March 15, 2008, VoiceMale sang at the WERS All A Cappella Live at the Majestic and took first place in a competition against the MIT Logarhythms and the UMass Amherst Doo-Wop Shop, winning the opportunity to open for world-renowned A Cappella group, Rockapella, at the Cutler Majestic Theater the next day.[1]
