A cappella voices heard from home

Slow No Tempo's Quarantet Project brings local a cappella voices by video

A pandemic is no reason for the voices of a Kamloops a cappella quartet to fall silent.

Slow No Tempo, made up of Alexander Bell, Ryan Noakes, Graham Specht and Simon Walter, has launched the Quarantet Project, a series of videos with members recording their parts from home.

So far, the group has covered Bruce Cockburn’s Lovers in a Dangerous Time and the a cappella staple Up On The Roof, made popular by The Drifters in the 1960s.

Slow No Tempo is the group behind a singing valentines initiative launched in the city two years ago. In February, the group raised $1,189 for the Kamloops Hospice Association, dropping in to serenade more than 40 lucky valentines all over Kamloops.

Further tunes will be posted on the group’s Facebook and YouTube pages, found on both under Slow No Tempo.
