THE QUICKSAND BAND
– Single launch –
In 2011 the band, accompanied by producer Gavin Glass, entered the studio to record their debut Album, Approaching Rain. The first single ‘Homesong’ was released on september 30th 2011, with the album released on Feb 4th 2012. That Voice, the second single from the album “Approaching Rain” will be released on 28th Sep in Whelans.
Their debut Gavin Glass-produced album certainly lives up to their deserved live reputation: the songs here reek of an authenticity that is not easy to summon up for those not born and bred in the land of the hickory wind…..an impressive knowledge of the genre. A welcome surprise.
*** Colm O’Hare, Hotpress
“(Approaching Rain) merges atmosphere and melody in equal measure………..an interesting mix of chameleon-like voices ranging from Neil Young & Bob Dylan to Glen Hansard & Ryan Adams…….definitely worth a listen.”
Make It Mag
“this alt country rock quartet, follow in the dusty footsteps of Neil Young, Tom Petty, and Wilco. Delivering a range of material from breezy, feel-good, 60′s folk tinged Cali-pop, to brooding grungy premonitions of death.”
Alternative Irish Music Review
“In both full electric mode or in various acoustic combinations and using the Cherry Tree venue as a base, Justin and the band have won many fans with a sound that combines roots, folk and soul with an earnest and honest delivery.”
