Toronto’s own dynamic a cappella sensation Countermeasure is the new sound in vocal music, known for their sophisticated harmonies, seamless blend, and infectious energy. Featuring 14 of Canada’s top young vocal talents and led by award-winning composer/arranger Aaron Jensen, the group’s genre-defying contemporary sound highlights the breadth and incredible capabilities of the human voice.
Countermeasure releases their sophomore album Made to Measure on Thursday, July 14th at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre. The album showcases the group’s wide musical range and highlights outstanding original compositions, along with truly inventive arrangements of some classic songs by the likes of Lennon/McCartney and Cole Porter. The show incorporates innovative live looping, vocal percussion, and instrument sounds made only by the voice.
Countermeasure has been featured on numerous television and radio programs, and have shared the stage with vocal giants The Nylons, The Swingle Singers, Nikki Yanofsky, and Blue Rodeo. They wowed audiences on two U.S. tours and are heading to another UK tour in August, 2016. Dubbed "The leading a cappella chorus out of Toronto" by the Washington (D.C.) Examiner, the group has won praise from critics and fans alike.
