Luckily for all of us, the one-page band biography is falling out of favour. It is unpleasant to write and even worse to read. There are times, however, when the band bio is a necessary evil. We understand that and appreciate your situation, so we’ll keep this as factual as possible.
We’re called Quiet Kids. There are four of us: Jay Hosking (vocals, keys, a little guitar), Ronnie Ellis (guitar, vocals, a little keys), Mikey Bowd (bass, a little vocals), and Geoffrey Stratton (drums, vocals). We are a team rather than a “project” with a leader. We write together, drink together, hang out together, and play some pretty great shows together. We have a singer who usually just sings, but we are not The Doors, Led Zepplin, U2, I Mother Earth, or Our Lady Peace.
Quiet Kids live in Vancouver, though none of us are originally from here. It’s hard to say what we do sound like. It’s kind of like Elvis Costello and older Wintersleep and newer Thrice and a little Constantines and a lot like our friends’ musical projects. I hate to admit it, but we may even sound a little like The Killers, which is doubly brutal because none of us listen to them and they also have a singer who mostly sings.
The band came together one summer and within two months we were recording our first album, Serious Lovers. It’s a pretty great record and it sounds like one of those summers when anything seems possible. We recorded and mixed the album ourselves (Jay is a studio-type guy) and we’re awfully proud of it. Have you listened to it yet?
The immediate future for Quiet Kids looks good. We’re almost finished writing a new record, and hopefully having some new people hear our stuff. Like yourself. Thanks for listening.
