The title track to Quiet Life's new EP Housebroken Man has taken on a life of its own. After being featured as the lead track on Spotify's new curated playlist "The Pulse of Americana," the single shot to more than 115,000 plays in just a few days (and counting).
"Housebroken Man" finds frontman Sean W. Spellman teaming with Shovels & Rope singer Cary Ann Hearst for a rowdy barroom duet that Esquire described as "from the gut" with a stripped-down authenticity that "sounds like your best friends made it."
Quiet Life will be back in the studio shortly to record a new full-length album, produced by Scott McMicken of Dr. Dog, to be released in 2015.
We caught up with the band before their MPMF show at Mr. Pitiful's on Saturday September 27th at 8p.
Tell us a little about how Quiet Life got started.
We had some jamming we needed to do during the winter break from school so my brother and I (along with some original members) started playing bars and VFW halls in and around Southeastern CT. Things grew from there.
What can fans expect from a Quiet Life live show?
Hopefully, a pleasant surprise.
What’s next for Quiet Life? What plans do you have coming up?
We just released a new EP called "Housebroken Man" and we plan on touring on that through the fall and then releasing the next full length in 2015. It's called FOGGY and we recorded it in Philly at Dr. Dog's studio with Scott from Dr. Dog producing.
Do you have any advice for local musicians in Cincinnati?
Hit the road. Record a lot. And book touring bands to play with you at home as much as possible.
