Accent is... Danny from Canada, Simon from Sweden, Evan from the U.S.A., Jean-Baptiste from France, Andrew from Canada, and James from the U.K.
Originally brought together as an international a cappella YouTube project, Accent is a collaboration of musicians from around the world looking to bring you the best in a cappella and jazz -- both online and live. Nothing says "harmony" like coming together across international borders.
Drawing inspiration from the vocal jazz pioneers who preceded them, Accent is forging a new path, melding jazz, pop and contemporary a cappella into one sound.
