Released From Quiet is a musical entity. A living, breathing, expanding, contracting, 'on the grow' music making entity that came to be over time. The foundations of RFQ began to take form on two separate continents; Asian - the part known as Japan.. in the Nagasaki Prefecture and North American..about as far north as a person can go: The Last Frontier State of Alaska. Through the pull of an undeniable magnetism - these two came together.
Chris’ smokey vocals will unwind twisted tales of gravel roads, well lit slick city streets, ancient lands and the vast expanses yet to be reached. RFQ energizes the air with their prosodical rhythmic covers of timeless classics and shines light on less well known songs hidden by the shadows of time. Their original music offer songs of hope and warning, lullaby and alarm, encouragement and caution. Understanding shadow cannot exist without light their music is infused with a certain courage to venture into unknown spaces.The story told: Tom Waits hangin’ with Mark Knopfler on the side of a gravel road ~ a big wind whips up a dust devil enveloping the two. Released From Quiet drive thru the storm and come out the other side playing Indie-Groove Smoky Soulful Rock.
