'happy go lucky, indie rock'n'roll with attitude.' With three guitars we provide a powerful wall of sound, but also maintaining melodic vocal lines and with mind blowing solos, the music is born to be played in front of large audiences.

Biography

The Quails are about to take off!

Emanating from the sleepy, seaside town of Teignmouth, The Quails are hoping to make waves in the music industry. Five creative and industrious guys whose set mainly comprises of their own original material, have spent the last year performing live in venues including; Plymouth, Newquay, Exeter, Bristol, Cardiff and London.

Unusually, in a competitive industry, they are eminently likeable and prepared to succeed though their own industry and drive. Since their formation in 2006 they have performed at several charitable events, raising money for the Helen Foundation, Oxjam, Teignmouth Lifesaving Club and the Imprezza charity.

Their quirky, catchy and predominantly danceable tunes are a melodic fusion of Indie-Rock and Pop. Lyrics and melodies are penned by lead singer Dan Steer and further developed by the other four band members into a cohesive end product. Lyrically the songs are endearing and express sentiments and experiences which transcend the generations. Musically they are dynamic and impressive and their live performances engage the audience from the onset.

Band members have an eclectic taste in music ranging from classical, through classic rock to contemporary artists. Inspired by a wide range of musical influences the band has developed their own unique style. With a slightly eccentric demeanour and vocal pitch reminiscent of Robert Smith of the Cure, Dan provides an entertaining front-man. Bassist Sam Banks, guitarist John Foulkes and drummer Chris Prentice collectively form a solid rhythm section whilst lead guitarist Max Armstrong’s formidable riffs provide a musical crescendo.
Sharing the same birth place as ‘Muse’, the Quails would love to follow a similar career trajectory!

The band have just finished recording their debut album at Mojo Studios in Torquay and the release is set to coincide with the launch of their new website.
