"Xylophone plinking and imaginative lyrics"
Channing & Quinn are an indie folk duo who craft music that blends quirky with creepy, and theatrics with sincerity. In a live setting the two do the work of several musicians by playing guitar, ukulele, accordion, drums, glockenspiel, banjo, looping vocals and even tap dancing all at the same time! (OK, some at the same time.) Their past tours have included one traveling entirely by Amtrak Trains, and most recently a seven-month-long national tour pulling and living in an Airstream trailer. They are currently based in Grand Rapids after spending nine years in Nashville, TN. Channing & Quinn have opened for Brian Vander Ark, Langhorne Slim, and Enter The Haggis They have released two full length albums, “Underneath This Big Striped Tent” and “Temporary Things,” in addition to three EP’s, and are releasing their third album “Up North” on vinyl in April 2016. You can also hear their music in film and television, adding to the soundtrack of “More Than Me” starring former SNL cast member Jim Bruer, “3rd Street Blackout” with Ed Weeks and Janeane Garofalo, and more.
