‘Superhero singing to truly raise goosebumps.’ The Guardian (U.K.)

For more than half a century, The Swingles has pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the five-time Grammy winning choral ensemble since it first made waves in the 1960s.

At a time when a cappella music is more popular than ever, The Swingles is recognised as a master of its craft. This program, Look Back (ForWard), is inspired by music from Bach through to Mumford & Sons. With creative arrangements that transport these well-loved songs into the group’s unique and rich sound world, the results are powerful and surprising.

‘The Swingle Singers pitched those mysteriously lovely chords with laser-like precision … a triumph.’ The Daily Telegraph (U.K.)
