Set Tone Men (STM), established in September 2011, is a young and energetic contemporary male a cappella group. STM has a diverse repertoire of pop and jazz, presented in extraordinary styles and arrangements. With years of singing experience, STM brings the audience a unique a cappella experience through live performances and their harmonious voices.
STM has been invited to perform at various events. In 2012, they were invited by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) to perform in their Christmas Concert in The Park. In the same year, they were invited by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department to perform in The Sound of Art.In July 2013, STM was invited by the city of Koshu, Japan, to perform at the Koshu a cappella Summit. In December 2014, STM was invited by Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Centre to take part in Voice Connected, a short film project which aims to raise awareness of cultural preservation of Hong Kong through traditional songs and video documentaries.
STM has participated in multiple international competitions, and has received encouraging results at the Taiwan International Vocal Festival 2012, where it won a Silver Medal in the World Contemporary a cappella Competition. It has also won the champion in Open Class of the Hong Kong a cappella Contest 2012 and has been awarded Gold Prize in the Hong Kong International a cappella Contest 2013.
In 2015, STM was invited by Hong Kong singer Phil Lam to record Cantonese pop song《頌讚詩》 (A Hymn of Praise), which received wide acclaim. Later that year, they were invited by RTHK as guests in their programme Artispiration to promotion the a cappella art form.
STM hopes that everyone will enjoy their music and share their love of a cappella!
