Portland, OR-based Quiet Life is a band of two brothers and a friend who create a blend of indie and folk music that takes listeners along on their travels.
Wild Pack is Quiet Life’s follow up to 2011’s Big Green. Big Green was called both “loose and affectionate” and “rambunctious” by critics, and hailed as one of the best independent releases of 2011. Wild Pack was produced by Adam Selzer (M Ward, Blind Pilot, Decemberists, etc.) in Portland, Oregon and was mastered by Joe Gastwirt (Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, etc.).
For the making of Wild Pack, they enlisted the help of notable Portland musicians such as Dave Depper (Fruit Bats, Menomena), Nathan Junior (M Ward, Dandy Warhols), Laurel Simmons (Alela Diane, Indians), etc., to create a record that both embodies the spirit of their live show and also utilizes modern sound engineering pleasantries such as fuzzed-out Leslie-simulated pedal-steel guitar pedals and twangy modified vintage amplifiers. In the end it remains true to the aesthetics of roots rock and roll. – via New Frontier Touring

“They say that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. If this is true, I want the eyes of Barna Howard. I hope, one day, to view the world with half the clarity that Howard writes his songs. He paints a series of vignettes, shedding light on those moments never cast as the subject of the camera’s eye.” – Thought on Tracks
The songs on Barna Howard’s second album, Quite A Feelin’, ruminate on his relationship with home. Now entrenched in Portland, Oregon, many of the album’s tracks immortalize and reflect on the Eureka, Missouri he once knew, while others focus on the relationships that define his new home out west. Small town life has long been celebrated in country and folk music, but Barna’s knack for capturing his own deeply personal nostalgia resonates in a rarely universal way. - via barnahoward.com
