  2. Grooveshark Artist, Quiet Company, have been taking the music scene by storm lately with the success of their latest single, You, Me, & the Boatman, off of their upcoming album, We Are All Where We Belong.

    The single made its way up to #3 on The Hype Machine Twitter chart- and has been given praise by many music blogs as of late.

    Check out what others in the industry had to say about Quiet Company:

    As always, Quiet Company demonstrates a perfect balance between rock and pop on “You, Me, & the Boatman”—the third track off their upcoming album. With their bombastic big band-esque arrangements, and playfully accessible sound, it’s hard not to love this track." - The Music Ninja

    After paying their dues for 11 years, waiting for this sound to regain popularity, I believe Quiet Company is poised to take the spotlight back from the men and women armed with MIDI controllers. After enduring the sounds of over-hyped 80s babies armed with MacBooks and Ableton for 10 years, I’m happy to hear real instrumentation and rock-soul still has a place in indie." - Earmilk

    Everything about it just screams big. Epic chorus, horns, the vocals. It’s a fun listen, and one that shouldn’t be ignored. This is my first taste of Quiet Company, but I doubt it will be my last." - We All Want Someone To Shout For

    The group have had some solid success so far in last years’ album release of “Songs for Staying In”, which charted at radio and landed in a few tv/film placements, including songs with acting roles in the ABC show My Generation." - Indie Music Filter
