Quarters of Change
Quarters of Change is the NYC based quartet leading the charge on New York City’s rock resurgence, and redefining what it means to be a rock star.
Composed of Ben Acker, Attila Anrather, Jasper Harris, and Ben Roter, Quarters of Change started in 2017 as a high school cover band, performing iconic rock songs of the 90s and 00s. It wasn’t until their junior year that they began writing original material, pulling influence from groups like The Strokes and Rage Against The Machine, and creating their own original sound. Within a year, the band had signed a deal with Warner/300 Entertainment, released streaming favorites like “Kiwi," and played sold out shows at renowned venues like Bowery Ballroom and Webster Hall.
Now, armed with a record deal and an undeniable slew of songs, Quarters of Change is poised to be alternative rock’s next big thing. Keep an eye out for their self-written debut LP "Into The Rift" with contributions from legendary producers Tom Lord-Alge and Mikey Freedom Hart (Bleachers), out now.
