Hailing from the United Kingdom, Vadé (pronounced vah-day) is an A Cappella R&B quintet formed by Philip Yeboah and JJ Hammersley in the summer of 2013. The signature Vadé sound is an amalgamation of R&B, Jazz & Gospel with a Motown flair. Their musical influences include Boyz II Men and Take 6. Distinguished by their close harmonies, eclectic taste in music, imaginative R&B/Jazz arrangements and beatboxing, Vadé produce covers of songs across a range of genres, medleys and original material, showcasing their vocal dexterity. The group has worked with Gregory Porter, Beverley Knight, Geri Halliwell, Katy B and Shaun Escoffrey. Vadé was named the 'best a cappella group in the UK' following their win of Sky One's talent competition Sing: Ultimate A Cappella 2017 which landed them a major recording deal with Decca Records. Their debut album, Cry Your Heart Out, was recorded at the renowned Abbey Road Studios and the title track was written by One Direction's Niall Horan. The band was nominated and subsequently won the title of 'Best Quintet' at the A Cappella Music Awards 2018. Following the release of their album, Vadé went on to independently release a Valentine's Day single entitled Be Mine (ft. Jermaine Riley) which was written and arranged by Jermaine Sanderson of Vadé. The future is bright for these rising stars and they are working diligently to create a legacy that will transcend time.
