In the increasingly popular world of a cappella singing groups, Accent has carved out its own niche. Inspired by the wizardly jazz harmonies of TAKE 6 and The Hi-Lo’s, the six men of Accent, all of them accomplished arrangers and instrumentalists in their own right, decided to take their love of close-harmony jazz singing – the denser and more intricate the better – as far as it could go. The improbable meeting of Jean-Baptiste Craipeau (France), Simon Åkesson (Sweden), Danny Fong (Canada), Andrew Kesler (Canada), James Rose (United Kingdom), and Evan Sanders (USA) began in 2011 after becoming long-distance fans of each other’s multi-tracked videos on YouTube. Since then, they have released four albums, performed at the London A Cappella Festival, and played dates across Europe, North America and Asia.
