Who are we?

We are an a cappella group: 5 time Grammy award winning, world touring and musically diverse. Check out our more recent videos on YouTube.

What we want!

We have recorded a song (O Come, O Come, Emmanuel), we want a video. We are looking for an artist to create a piece to accompany a new and original recording of this classic and mysterious song. You are free to choose any artistic direction, and use any method that inspires you but it must evoke the magic, nostalgia and anticipation of Christmas.

'O Come' is an advent song, calling people into the Christmas period, we'd love for this to be reflected in your work.

We'll cover your expenses up to £200

We will post your video on our website, which is viewed worldwide by our extensive fanbase.

We will post the video through out our social media network, one of our recent videos has received over 170,000 views.

We will link to and promote your portfolio/website

We will premier your video during our London Showcase, at Cadogan Hall.

What you need to know

The application deadline is the 7th October. We will need the finished video by 2nd November, and will be looking to check in with the winning proposal midway between these dates to check progress.

Please submit a moodboard of your idea including a sense of colour palette, initial sketches and and short writeup of your vision for the piece to oliver@swinglesingers.com

If you need some inspiration, we have an outline of the arranger's artistic vision for the video. You can follow this as loosely or closely as you like. To get hold of this please email the above address. You can also email for a link to an excerpt of the track, to help get the ideas flowing! The chosen artist will be sent the full track (4.46) to work from.
