2010 was a break out year for Austin, TX’s QUIET COMPANY. They began the year by playing SXSW 2010 & self-producing/recording their 6 track EP, Songs for Staying In, which was released to incredible critical acclaim in May, 2010. The 1st single, “How Do You Do It” was quickly added to KGSR’s rotation, and with in weeks, was also a staff pick selection by KROX’s Trevin Smith and added into full rotation on their station as well. “How Do You Do It” was featured for over 4 months on both stations. The enormous amount of radio play drastically increased Quiet Company’s profile around Texas and earned them opening spots on tours with the Toadies, Bob Schneider & Rooney and allowed them to play in front of sold out crowds at the House of Blues in Dallas and Houston. The demand in Austin for Quiet Company exploded in 2010. They received offers to headline the historic Threadgills World Headquarters, Antones, & Emo’s and continued to play monthly in Austin with an ever increasing draw. The highlight of the year came when they were asked to record a session for ACL presents Satellite Stages at the world famous KLRU studios 6A in August. http://www.klru.org/satellitesets/artist/quiet-company/ Quiet Company’s music made a splash on TV as well. Their songs were featured on multiple episodes of MTV’s The Real World New Orleans, Keeping Up With the Kardashians & they were asked to play themselves on an episode of ABC’s My Generation and had 2 songs featured in the series. Quiet Company ended 2010 with a tour in September that took them through the Midwest including Chicago, Nashville, Cincinnati, Shreveport. In November of 2010 they began recording & self-producing their 3rd album which is on schedule to be released in Spring 2011. 2009 Highlights: Shifting their focus from spreading their time thin over the national touring circuit to developing their fan base locally and regionally, Quiet Company made huge strides and built considerable buzz in 2009. They released their sophmore record, "Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon," to critical praise in March 09 and shared the stage with bands such as The Toadies, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Los Lonely Boys, This Will Destroy You, Dear & The Headlights, Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday, The Rocketboys, and Alpha Rev. "Everyone" received regular radio play on Austin radio stations KROX, KUT, COOP, & KLBJ while the videos for the first two singles, "On Modern Men" and "Its Better To Spend Money..." find themselves in regular rotation on local music channel METV as well as numerous internet radio/film podcasts from all over America, Canada, and Europe. Quiet Company's catalog was licensed out to a few non exclusive licensing companies and thus far has been used by Sweet Leaf Tea's Sweet Leaf TV, as well as two episodes of E! Network's Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and an upcoming episode of MTV's Real World. Since their inception in 2005, Quiet Company has traveled all over the country, logging over 400 shows just since 2007, and though the lineup has changed, the goal never has: To write epic pop music that is intelligent, honest, and thought provoking.

Quiet Company is joyful, magnificent indie powerpop. If you love indie rock but wish it leaned more towards the rock side of the moniker, if you're a fan of Britpop but feel like it might be even better when flavored with a twist of Texas swagger, or if you just want to get sweaty... Read More →
