Mike Quinn

New Mike Quinn EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Mike Quinn (Purples, And The Moneynotes) recently shared his self-titled EP, which is reinforced by Pappy Biondo (Cabinet), Pat Finnerty, Zach Miller (Dr. Dog), Joe Reno (En Fuego), Dave Ulrich (Needle Points) and Andrew Holmes. Picking up an infectious, folk-oriented groove, whilst rolling down the road with the inclusive injection of bittersweet harmonies and slightly off-the-beaten-path instrumental forays, the record feels like the byproduct of a tight-knit collective of good ole friends. It’s a refreshing rocker whose laidback layers sparkle in the open air. The five-song collection also includes a version of Terry Gylkyson's "The Cry of the Wild Goose," which was originally performed by Frankie Laine; however, this one is based off the Michael Hurley version.

Mike Quinn (Purples, Needle Points) has released a new EP Through Love. The record has a relaxed, rock-folk vibe, while still threading bits of raunchy riffs, incorporating biting texture into these eased off tunes. You’ll find yourself humming along to the twang of the melody, and you can expect a few curves along the path.

Mike Quinn Opening for Quiet Life at MilkBoy Philly Dec. 12

Mike Quinn’s lyrical approach could be considered quirky, since his observations often twist rather than taking a clear path. However, those “odd” decisions create memorable routes, which, coupled with his distinct delivery, has a way of embedding his words in your mind. Instrumentally, it’s familiar enough and reminiscent of a folksy Americana backdrop, with those endearingly inviting open-screen-door tones. However, taking a closer look, those traditional images are slightly warped and out of focus in a surprising revitalized configuration. The overcast folk of The Bailey Hounds fill the middle slot. The foursome continues to emerge with tightly constructed agonizingly endearing tunes that offer a glimpse of light amid the darkness. The night will be headlined by the fresh energy-infused Americana of Quiet Life. Milkboy Philly, 1100 Chestnut St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
