Album Notes

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!

Cadence is:
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.


to write a review


incredibly good drums!
I am always looking for good acapella music. Cadence and most of all their drumset realisation are stunning!

Scott Cobban

Frost Free is great a cappella with a stellar selection of songs.
Cadence does a great job with this CD. The extremely tight, accurate harmonies create a crisp vocal sound for all of the amazing tracks on Frost Free.

Dave Sheehan

This CD is an awesome example of good a cappella. You've got to check it out.

Top 10 Albums of all time
This and "20 for 1" have become two of my all time favorite albums. Amazing arrangements, dynamic and creative vocals. Not your typical four part accapella. It's rockin'!


(check out my review of Cadence - Twenty for One). This is an incredible CD from an incredible group.

Their harmonic tuning is exceptionally good. The stylistic interpretations and arrangements of famous songs are fantastic.

The vocal percussion is some of the best I've ever heard. Unless you really knew, you would swear that there were real instruments playing.

The rhythmic influence is fantastic. Very precise, very appropriate and adds so much to each song.

All this and they can even swing! Hit That Jive Jack is awesome.

All in all, this has made it to my top-5 albums of all time! If you are a acappella fan, this is a must must must have album.

A Fantastic listening CD
I heard this CD, Frost Free, about 2 years ago. The owner of the CD gave me his copy and said, when you're finished listening to it, please return it. Well.....I never returned it and actually wore it out! What a fantastic CD! I sing in a Barbershop quartet and appreciate a cappella singing. Very talented gentlemen and great voices. I bought their second CD and I'm beginning to wear it out. I bought another Frost Free and returned it to my friend!
