Northern Quarter formed in May 2017 and have been successfully working as a covers band, blending modern contemporary pop favourites with old school jazz and blues vibes and playing most of the venues in the Bow Valley as well as further afield, all the while working away writing and recording original songs. This creative effort has resulted in their debut EP COLD DARK NIGHT.
This six-track EP demonstrates the bands eclectic tastes and influences. From Folk-Rock to Alternative, to Indie, to Contemporary Pop, all underpinned by the beautifully smooth vocal talents of singer-songwriter Kerry Hunter, an established local artist in her own right. A strong rhythm section held down by husband and wife team Dave and Wendy Crewe complement the intricate and melodic guitars of Carlos Nadeau. In addition, lush orchestration is provided via samples played on a drum pad by Dave.
Lyrically the songs range from stories of love and loss, friendship and camaraderie, travel and freedom, and optimism.
'Cold Dark Night' will be available on CD, and on all streaming and download services from June 22.
Strong cover set with growing number of original songs.
