For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. It all started when the session singers sang through Bach’s Well Tempered Klavier as a sight-reading exercise and found the music to have a natural swing. The resulting album, Jazz Sebastian Bach, launched the Swingle Singers to fame. Since then, they have won 5 Grammy awards and appeared on numerous film and TV Soundtracks including Sex and the City, Milk, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee. Their unique sound can be heard on the soundtrack to the recently released film Downsizing which is taking the film festival scene by storm. The group’s versatility has led to collaborations with artists as diverse as the Modern Jazz Quartet, Jamie Cullum and Labrinth. Luciano Berio was one of the first composers to explore the sound of the Swingles’ amplified voices in the orchestral setting with his groundbreaking Sinfonia.
