Biography

The Quiet Revolution formed in early 2002 around the songwriting of Scott Maynard. Each member has played in countless bands, including By Divine Right, Selina Martin, DoMakeSayThink, Deep Dark United and The Arrogant Worms. A combination of good songwriting and musicianship inspires the Quiet Revolution but what truly sets them apart is Scott's voice.
You never know what is going to happen at a QR show - there is the tight pop-rock band, the intimate solo performance, the classical sensibility, the jazz influence, bluegrass, improv. Switching up gears, sometimes in the middle of a song, you will never see the same set twice.
Influences include The Kinks, The Clean, The Police, Steve Reich, Bach, Stravinsky, Nick Drake, Clarence Ashley, Slint, The Rheostatics.
