Background

OC Times OC Times Barbershop Quartet

OC Times formed in the spring of 2003 and placed 18th out of 52 quartets in their first Barbershop Harmony Society international quartet competition. The quartet updated its image in January 2005 when Cory Hunt replaced Drew Harrah as the bass singer. With coaching by barbershop veteran Mark Hale, they dressed more casually and broadened their repertoire with non-traditional songs. OC Times' subsequent international competition placement jumped to 5th, 3rd, then 2nd before they won the championship in 2008.

The group won the 2008 CARA Awards (Contemporary A cappella Recording Awards) for Best Barbershop Song and Best Barbershop Album for their sophomore release, Let's Fly.
