The best kept secret in music


"Silent Q Makes Some Noise in the Louisville Music Scene"

With their wide variety of musical influences, Silent Q creates music with hooks and depth. Aaron usually sparks the song ideas, and Chandler overlays riffs that compliment Aaron's melodic vision. After that, Ben and Ivan bring in the percussion, and usually a jam session will follow up with Scott hashing out the lyrics, sometimes in a matter of minutes. Not every song follows the same tempo, and not every song is them venting anger.

"We don't force ourselves to write songs," Ivan explains. "If the idea doesn't take us someplace right away where we are feeling something and wanting to develop it, then it probably isn't that great of an idea and we should probably let it go. I have always thought that our best songs write themselves in about 10 minutes."

Chandler adds, "You shouldn't have to beat a song together. It should want to come together on its own. And the ones that do are always the ones that are our best songs."

For a concert schedule and more info, keep it on the QT at, and keep your ears open for a full-length album that will be available in January at Ear-X-Tacy and at all Silent Q shows.

"Silent Q's New CD"

The CD entitled "Everyday Circus" will be available in mid-January. I have heard it and it is very good, lots of musical ability, great vocals and excellent time changes. Buy it or get pummeled.

Feeling a bit camera shy


The music industry has finally discovered the goldmine that is the Louisville, Kentucky music scene. With all the attention that has focused on recent local successes, such as Days of the New, Primer 55, Tantric, Nappy Roots, FLAW, and several others that are being courted by the majors right now, Silent Q stands poised and ready to be the next band to show the world that Louisville's rock scene is undeniably rich in talent.

Formed in 1999, the core of Silent Q began developing their style and searching for the perfect additions to the band. After a few rotations of very talented musicians, the rhythm section has solidified. Featuring former members of Flaw, My Own Victim, and the very popular regional band, The Jive Rockets (a jump blues/swing band), the current incarnation of the band has locked into its unique blend of influences and personalities, pushing forward even stronger than before.

Since the final pieces of the band have come together, the songs have not stopped. Almost writing themselves, new songs have been pouring out faster than they can be recorded. The balance of energy between the roaring guitars and soaring vocals dance back and forth; furious riffs mix with passionate harmonies, anchored by the assertive interplay of drums and bass.

Feeling confident in the songs, Silent Q has been pushing more and more of that energy into their live performance. Making new fans at every show, the band has spread its name purely by word of mouth. But with a debut studio album nearly finished, Silent Q is prepared to charge into the regional scene and beyond.
