Based in: Edmonton, Canada.

The CHICKistory (no, it's not a medical condition!)

The CHICKAdivas found each other in a "cosmic event" in April 2002 - a classified ad wanting female singers to form an a cappella group. Two singers grew to five over the years, to accommodate more dynamic and interesting harmonies. We have performed at fundraisers, community, private, and corporate events in Edmonton and around Alberta, and written and recorded corporate jingles.

One of our greatest achievements is winning the a cappella competition Northern Harmony 2003 ( A generous prize donation from MEHCo Inc. enabled us to record our first CD. "CHICK Us Out!", was released in 2004 at Festival Place in Sherwood Park to a sold-out house. There were strong indications that we had finally hit the big time: 1) there were scalpers selling tickets at the door; 2) the sound system blew up - our first true "smoke 'n' light show"; 3) we had men's underwear thrown at us - move over Tom Jones, here come the CHICKS!

Another very memorable event was performing with The McDades and Anne Vriend on CKUA radio's Christmas Morning 2-hour special in 2004. Thanks to Bob Chelmick of CKUA, one of our biggest supporters!

Our 2nd CD "Wintersong" was released in 2006 this time to two sold-out shows. We unveiled our first 2 original songs: Wintersong, based on the German Christmas carol "Leise rieselt der Schnee" (with English lyrics by Regina & music and arrangement by Rebecca) and the French-Canadian carol Entre le Boeuf et l'ane Gris.

On March 5, 2010 we had an awesome concert where we hosted Cadence, another a cappella group from Toronto, who have 2 Juno Award nominations. It was a treat to see and hear the talented guys from Cadence and join them on stage with a concert finale song in 9 part harmony!

What lies in the future?

A cappella world domination, of course! But we'd also be happy with singing together 'till we're old and grey. Ya, we know, some of us are already there!

And we'd be ecstatic to do more jingles and recordings for soundtracks for film and video. If you have any connections, drop us an email!

And remember...We're for Hire!

If you're looking for unique entertainment for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or corporate event, we'd love to sing up a storm. Drop us an email with information on your event and we'll be in touch! Or download our brand new brochure, designed by one of our own CHICKS Marion McFall of eye talk studio.
