Supporting Acts: My Friday Slacks, The Neffs Quiet Company
Quiet Company, led by Taylor Glen Muse, is one man's vision brought to life with a little help from his friends. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Taylor Muse already has years of experience under his young belt, having fronted and played in many bands, including an early version of Eisley. After the break-up of his last band, The Connotations, Taylor hoped to complete an album of collected contributions from his extensive cast of musician friends. Instead, he played nearly everything himself, and ended up with a very personal and visionary endeavor entitled "Shine Honesty." By the end of it all, you may be uncomfortably aware of exactly who he loves, who he hates, and how he feels about them all. After the release of their critically acclaimed first record, "Shine Honesty," Austin's Quiet Company took to the road for over 200 shows all across the U.S. The video for "Fashionabel," by Emmy nominated director Cameron McCasland, won several film festival awards and was added to rotation by MTV.CA. During that time songwriter Taylor Muse began recording demos that would later become "Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon." Soon after the tour the band sought and achieved release from their agreement with Northern Records and began making plans to release their new record by themselves. Now, almost three years in the making, the proudly present to you, "Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon". Lyrically, the record promises songs that will make you fall in love with life and then just as quickly challenge everything you know about it. With 15 songs equaling an hour of music, Quiet Company tells tales of love, death, and frustration with the world we're forced to live in. Though always uplifting, the songs range form the raucously energetic to the beautifully intimate and never go without melodies that are immediately haunting and infectious.
