Elegant, energetic and inventive, Cadence's Juno-nominated debut CD, Frost Free, catapults the Canadian quartet into the ranks of the must-own.
The arrangements and vocal flights of fancy are exceptional. Start with beautiful harmonies created by very pure voices. Take a songlist of familiar tunes, "Spinning Wheel," "Shape of My Heart," "I Wish," "Straighten Up and Fly Right," and more. Then add arrangements which occasionally add vocal sounds which you've never heard before which are always used within a harmonious context of the whole arrangement. What do you get...originality, that's what you get! This is one of the finest quartets to make an appearance in the a cappella scene in quite a while!
Four men, four microphones, no instruments. This is the formula for Toronto's celebrated vocal band, CADENCE. This formidable foursome has been dishing up its unique blend of tight harmony, instrumental imitation, high-energy antics, and audience interaction to sold-out audiences-and getting people genuinely excited about vocal music! The results have earned CADENCE international recognition as "one of the finest quartets to make an appearance in the a cappella scene"
CADENCE was nominated for a 2001 Juno Award and received two Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for their debut CD, "frost-free".
CADENCE is internationally recognized for their unique Canadian approach to a cappella vocal music. Performance requests have come from all over North America and Europe, and as far away as Venezuela and Egypt.
During the past five years, the CADENCE performance schedule has been highlighted by appearances on radio and television, at Toronto's SkyDome, and the 2001 World Leaders tribute to Quincy Jones. In 2003 CADENCE had the honour of an "impromptu" performance with Bobby McFerrin at the Montreal Jazz Festival. Most recently, the band won first place and "audience favourite" at the New York Regional Harmony Sweepstakes.
