Quincy is a small town that sits quietly on the belly of the Mississippi River in rural Illinois. We prowled the banks, swam the brown water, and sat up on the bluffs at night staring down into it. The river loved us.

"Quincy's 13-song disk is a beautiful showcase of talent, lyrics and emotion. It's certainly not emo, so don't get me wrong here! The sound can be described as having a variety of alt country influences and straight up rock (with the traditional line-up of guitar, bass, and drums). This sells the style short though, as lyricist, guitarist and singer Christopher Beeson paints stunning scenes with his words and music that transcend categorization."
"Quincy is one of Tucson's most promising new acts. Recent transplants from Portland OR, one of the hippest music scenes in the country, this act will remind you of Iron & Wine, a rootsy-meloncholy Sebadoh, or an indie-tinged 16 Horsepower w/ a bit of a Nick Drake influence."
"The band is lead by Portland transplant Christopher Beeson, whose musical spirit seems to have been born here. The style certainly has a guitar driven "desert rock" (a lá John Coinman, Greyhound Soul, Truck) sound, but it's greener and sweeter and funkier sometimes too."

"Quincy plays alternately grimy and twinkly folk blues with whatcha might call articulate lyrics"
