Every year thousands compete in the world's greatest singing competition... that you've never heard of. American Harmony journeys deep into the ultra-obsessive, zany, and heartfelt world of competitive barbershop singing, where passion is equaled only by raw talent, and the reward is not fame or fortune, but simply victory.

The film focuses on 4 quartets vying to win gold at the International Championship of Barbershop Singing, in what turns out to be the closest and most controversial victory in its 70 year history. Max Q is the heavy favorite - a superstar quartet comprised of former Champions. Looking to upset them is OC Times (The Heartthrobs), Vocal Spectrum (The Rookies) and Reveille, an aging foursome that has been singing together for 30 years.

In total, fifty quartets duke it out for the coveted gold medal, while facing the pressures of quartet life - from big egos to brain cancer and everything in between.

Aengus James
American Harmony is Aengus's feature film directorial debut. The film took over 3 years to complete with more than 500 hours of shot footage- most of which was shot by Aengus himself. Additionally, Aengus is in post on Barry Levinson's Poliwood for which he served as Cinematographer and Associate Producer. Aengus has also worked with and learned from director Adam Shankman (Hairspray).
