Boston, Massachusetts, USA

QUILT's sound can entangle you in a stomping fuzzy garage riff, relax you with a reverb-drenched chant and take you to new musical realms with something along the lines of post-folk psych-pop, pre-fab jangle-rock.


QUILT draws influence from a wide array of genres, and creates a sound all its own with varied instrumentation and multiple vocals. Known for a mix of spacey psychedelic folk rock and intriguing vocal harmonies, QUILT's main members are singer/guitarist Shane Butler and singer/guitarist Anna Rochinski, as well as drummer Taylor Mcvay, cellist Merideth Hillbrand, and several other musicians who occasionally play shows with QUILT.
The members initially met at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston just under two years ago as art students of various disciplines- painting, video, performance- and developed a fan base in Boston during their time in school. In the first year and a half of playing shows, QUILT released two short albums and completed three short tours, attracted the attention of several major Boston newspapers and was nominated by the Boston Phoenix as best Garage/Psych band of 2010.
Now graduates, QUILT is planning to tour frequently and release their first full-length record, which is currently in mixing/mastering.
Instrumentation live and on recordings has included guitar, vocals, organ, banjo, cello, drums, and theremin. The band strives for an open and flexible stance to performing in terms of the lineup, and has played acoustic as well as electric shows, in basements, mid size clubs, barns, backyards, rooftops and living rooms.
QUILT has shared the stage with acts such as Dark Dark Dark, DOM, Golden Girls, Lower Dens, Prince Rama, MV & EE, Beach Fossils, Total Slacker, Pocahaunted, Truman Peyote, Eternal Summers, and Herbcraft.
