Juliet Quick is currently based in Brooklyn, where in 2016 she began playing with a backing band made up of collaborators Philip Joy on drums, Nathan Kamal on violin, and Oliver Mashburn on guitar. Quick grew up in the Hudson Valley, and her art has always been in conversation with that landscape. In addition to her music, which relies heavily on that setting for its tone and imagery, she has written a chapbook of research-based poems on the Hudson River.
Since the weekend of Donald Trump’s inauguration, she has also been organizing and hosting shows in Brooklyn to fundraise for leftist and progressive causes, donating all of the proceeds to organizations like the National Network of Abortion Funds or the Ramapough Lenape Prayer Camp (organized to fight a proposed oil pipeline through ancestral land in New Jersey).
Over the past two years, she’s been playing around New York at venues like Rockwood Music Hall, Palisades, and Pete’s Candy Store. Her work is influenced by artists like Joanna Newsom, Anais Mitchell, and Fleet Foxes. She released one collection of songs under the name Juliet K in 2016. She is 24.
