Quenby Iandiorio was introduced to the Country/Americana scene during her time in LA from `97-`09. But after years of enjoying her friends from out front, she decided it was time to have a go at it from up on stage. Late in `07 she picked up the guitar in earnest which was followed very quickly by recording her first song and shortly after by compiling her first band. By `09, Q’s desire to take the band all the way made a move to Texas inevitable, so she and original drummer, Clint Short (Shurman, Stonehoney, Weldon Henson), pulled up stakes and relocated to Austin.
Since then she has made four successful tours of the Northern and Northwestern U.S. resulting in her latest move to Livingston, MT from where she books and maintains a full-time performing and touring schedule with local musicians with a stable of talented local musicians.
2016 saw the release of Quenby’s second self-produced album, “Pretty Little Thing”, recorded with friends and collaborators in Austin, TX. The first album, “Long Time Comin’” was conceived over 2008 with friend and co-producer, Bryan Dobbs in Los Angeles and released in 2009. The two are re-uniting to release Quenby’s third album, an EP of songs the two recorded before her move to Austin and then subsequently shelved in favor of “Pretty Little Thing”. The time has come to revisit these tracks and get them ready for release and 2019 is as good a year as any.
