Who ist Accent and how did they form?
Accent began in 2011 as a one-time Internet collaboration among a cappella vocalists from 5 different countries. These musicians had stumbled upon each other on YouTube through a common love for close harmony vocal groups of the 20th century. Eventually, they decided to produce a collaborative video from their respective homes. Following that ﬁrst project, the group continued to work together, communicating solely through Facebook and e-mail. In 2014, the group was invited to meet and perform live for the very ﬁrst time in Sweden. After a rousing success, the members have continued to perform live and released their debut EP entitled Here We Are in 2015. Accent is truly a success story of the modern age.
