Kevin Fox to leave the Swingles
We're sorry to learn that the extraordinary Canadian singer, beatboxer (and former archaeologist) Kevin Fox is to leave the Swingles at the end of the Summer 2019. His talent and contribution to the UK a cappella scene have been immense over the past decade and many of us have thoroughly enjoyed his workshops and tutorials. We wish him all the best with his new start. Note: if you think you could replace Kevin let the Swingles know at by Sunday 28th April 2019. You'll need to be comfortable singing from a low D (D2) up to a high F (F4) in chest or head voice. You should also be an experienced vocal percussionist (and happy to step into some pretty big shoes).
