Get ready for next-level a cappella with Countermeasure! With smooth harmonies, joyful performances and infectious energy, Countermeasure has earned standing ovations and critical acclaim worldwide. Featuring 12 of Canada’s top vocal talents led by award-winning composer/arranger Aaron Jensen, the group has shared stages with a cappella giants including Naturally 7, The Swingle Singers and top 40 stars like Corey Hart and Blue Rodeo. They perform innovative arrangements of pop favourites, classic jazz standards, and original songs including “Takin’ it Home”, “Life is Fine”, “Fox in the Field”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “Lovers in a Dangerous Time”, “London Bells”, “Train the ‘A’ Take” and “Made to Measure”. Their diverse songbook has equipped the group to headline international choral concerts, play the main stage at jazz festivals and entice club-goers onto the dance floor.
Countermeasure has won multiple awards from Contemporary A Cappella Society of America including Best Contemporary A Cappella Album for “Made to Measure” (2017), Best Electronic/Experimental Video and Best CAL Video (runner up) for “Opera Somnia” (2017) and a tie with Pentatonix for Best Original Song – “Fox in the Field” (2017). The videos for their original songs, “Life is Fine” and “Fox in the Field”, from their latest album release, “Made to Measure”, have nearly 500,000 YouTube views.
In addition to providing the live soundtrack to Canadian National Film Board shorts, Countermeasure can be found on CBC Radio and TV, Global Television, Rogers Television, City TV, and CP24. They are also a founding artist of SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival, Canada’s premier a cappella festival. They have wowed audiences from Italy to New York City with concerts at the Kennedy Centre and Koerner Hall, Toronto’s Beaches International Jazz Festival, the London a Cappella Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the world-renowned Vocalmente Festival.
FringeReview.ca declares, “A stunning hour of world-class a cappella music. If singing at the Edinburgh Fringe were an Olympic sport, Countermeasure would be a hands-down gold medal winner.” Florian Statdler, VocalBlog, Germany concludes, “I have seen 100s of a cappella shows but what these Canadians are doing here at #LACF2015 is unheard of. What a joy and a pleasure. You nail those speeches, you sing so beautifully, & you know how to put on a show.” And, East Coast 107.6 FM Scotland raves, “55 minutes of pure gold! If there was more than a five star rating, I would give it to these guys as they are literally superb!”
