Quiet Company


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, dance around like a fool and feel some great energy at a live show,

you owe it to yourself to get your body, or at the very least your ears, in front of Quiet


In a changing industry, the one constant has been the live rock show, moving, connecting

and exhilarating fans. Entertainers first, Quiet Company deliver a tight, high-energy,

crowd-pleasing show on stages across the nation, notably headlining Austin's Blues on

the Green in front of a record-setting 14,000+ people, playing ACL Fest, SXSW, CMJ,

Canadian Music Week, NXNE, Musikfest, and selling out venues in Austin, Chicago and

New York City.

Quiet Company has self-released 3 full length albums, an EP, a Christmas album and a

DVD in the past five years, and is currently in the process of writing their newest album

with Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra) producing. This one promises to diverge a

little from their current course, being written in the rehearsal studio by the band versus

being built brick by brick in the studio, and they expect to perform the majority of the

album live in the studio in order to more truly capture the energy of their explosive live


Over the past few years, Quiet Company shattered the record for the most Austin Music

Awards won in a single year, were listed as one of NPR's Bands to Watch in 2012 and

2013 (http://n.pr/yCVhFp) and one of 5 Buzzworthy Bands to Watch at SXSW 2012

by Time Magazine (http://ti.me/xSajsf), and chosen as one of 8 bands to see at SXSW

2011 by the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/06/us/06ttshuffle.html)

. They've been featured on Late Night with Carson Daly, recorded an hour long show

in front of a live audience in the original Austin City Limits studio, had music placed

on a variety of TV shows including Hart of Dixie, Keeping Up With The Kardashians,

Teen Mom and many more. They've been chosen as a featured RedBull SoundSelect

artist, placing them in the ranks of many of the biggest bands in the indie rock world, and

shared the stage with iconic acts such as Cheap Trick, Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven,

and The Toadies.

Quiet Company is Taylor Muse singing and playing guitar, Tommy Blank playing guitar

and keyboards, Matt Parmenter playing bass and Cody

Ackors playing trombone and keyboards.
