Biography

The SnowTones formed in August of 2010 when Quinn wanted to form a new vocal band. The idea was to borrow harmonies from the Manhattan Transfer and the Mamas and Papas, but added a doo wop and jazz pop spin to create an urban folk jazz sound. The group debuted with a jazz choral version of the national anthem and the Weaver's Solidarity Song used in the labour movement of the 60s. The group then parlayed their approach to holiday music. A 2 song demo recorded on an I-Phone scored some local restaurant gigs that caught the attention of local media. The group is working on their first release and on some sweet versions of classics by Van Morrison, the Beatles, the Turtles and an array of gospel and folk melodies.
