Fifth Street is a vocal quintet based in Victoria, BC. Its five members – Natasha Penfield, Jilaine Orton, Ryan Narciso, Kenji Lee and Taylor Caswell – met at the University of Victoria’s School of Music and formed the group out of a desire to make music together and continue growing as artists. Inspired by a capella powerhouses such as Pentatonix, The Real Group and M-Pact, Fifth Street combines the worlds of pop, jazz and R&B in five-part harmony.
Rachael sat down with three of the members to talk about some of their newest music, what the group has been doing during lockdown, and what’s coming up for the band over the summer!
