Camborne & Redruth based Proper Job Singers formed in 2006 and to date have recorded two albums with ICON Audio, ‘Take A Stroll Up Fore Street’ in 2011 and ‘When We Sing of Cornwall’ in 2013.

The choir are reknowned for injecting traditional Cornish humour in to their live shows. Second Tenor – David Oates can often be found telling Cornish dialect stories by the late Herbie Lean including classics such as ‘Aunt Martha’s Wedding’ , ‘Rooster Had Some Reason to be Proud’ and ‘Cobblers Shop’.

Proper Job are a true testament to the benefits of producing an Audio CD. To date the choir have released in excess of 2500 CD units spanning both albums, donating in excess of £11,000 to their chosen charities.

The choir were interviewed on BBC Radio Cornwall in 2013 by Tiffany Truscott promoting their latest album ‘When We Sing of Cornwall’. To listen to the interview, along with excerpts of both albums please use the player below.
