“Emory Quinn, or EQ as they are called, is nothing but pure fun. They are not only extremely talented players of several instruments each, but they also are capable of crafting an evolving sound in each tune that is distinct but different in a way that sets the trend and does not follow it. Their music is a collection of cool grooving songs that are not country, not pop, and not Americana. They are all three at the same time. Emory Quinn is their own sound that can effortlessly cross the mainstream lines in the same CD with ease and versatility. If Emory Quinn could be explained in one word, it would be versatility.” Keith Howerton
Emory Quinn is a band that takes its roots from folk, rock, and country music resulting from the different interests and influences of the members of the band, while creating a sound that can effortlessly cross the mainstream lines in the same CD with ease and versatility.
The group was originally founded by Clint Bracher, Nathan Rigney, and Case Bell while enrolled at Texas A&M University. The name of the band comes from Nathan and Clint's middle names, Nathan Emory Rigney and Clint Quinn Bracher.
In the beginning the band starting recording tracks in dorm rooms and houses while at school, along with rough live recordings of various shows. They released their debut album, “Letting Go,” in September 2006, and their sophomore
effort, “The Road Company,” in April 2008. In 2010, came the release of their first live record, “Live at Gruene Hall,” and a third studio album, “See You at the Next Light.”
One listen to an EQ recording and it is plain to see that the music they play is truly diverse. If you asked them to define it they would probably each give you a different answer. Most of all they just enjoy what any other band in the world does: playing music, touring as a band, and doing whatever they can to give their audience good music and a good show.
