Perpetual E-Motion (Tenor - Ian Loughrey, Lead - James Essex-MacIntyre, Bass - Vern Simkins, Baritone - Len Matiowsky) was formed in May 2013 to perform at a church in Portland, ON, that was in need of musical accompaniment for one of its services. The quartet's great sound and friendship gave them the incentive to stick together despite hailing from three different cities hours apart.
The quartet has trained and honed their musical skills at Harmony University in Nashville Tennessee, performed at numerous community events, concerts and church services. They have also participated in seasonal events such as Christmas caroling for Kingston's Partners In Mission Food Bank, delivering Singing Valentines, and are also the winners of the 2017 BHS Ontario District Novice Quartet contest.
