"Xylophone plinking and imaginative lyrics..."

"The two do the work of four musicians in a live setting..."
- Winston Salem Journal
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.) Often touring the country in a rather unorthodox way, past tours have consisted of traveling entirely by Amtrak Trains, and most recently a 7 month long national tour pulling and living in an Airstream trailer. They are currently based in Grand Rapids, MI after spending 9 years in Nashville, TN. Be on the lookout for them touring through your city often adding support for artists Brian Vander Ark, Langhorne Slim, and Enter The Haggis, or have them play a house concert in your own home or neighborhood.
They have released 2 full length albums “Underneath This Big Striped Tent”, and “Temporary Things” in addition to 3 EP’s, and are releasing their 3rd 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 “The Muslims are Coming” featuring comedians Jon Stewart, David Cross and more.
