Biography

In 2008, five versatile professional performers and composers from the London jazz and gospel scene came together to form vocaLIVE - an a cappella group with a difference. Drawing on the rich tradition of a cappella vocal music, from the Swingle Singers to Take Six, vocaLIVE's all-embracing repertoire encompasses jazz, Latin, gospel, and classical music - anything from Michael Jackson classics to bold contemporary works.


As a group they have performed at the Barbican, Trinity College of Music, the Royal Festival Hall and the world-famous 606 Jazz Club. They are proud to be working with the Southbank Centre's internationally renowned choral director Mary King, who says "They are a really talented a cappella choir with a strong and unique blend of voices. Fun, brave, talented - what more could you wish for in a vocal ensemble?" Individually, vocaLIVE's singers have graced the stage at the Montreaux, London, and Marlborough Jazz Festivals, toured internationally with Libera, appeared live on BBC Radio 1, Radio 4 and BBC television, recorded at Abbey Road, and conducted at the Roundhouse.


vocaLIVE are perfectly suited to provide something a little different at your wedding ceremony, drinks reception or even your evening party.
