Newfoundland’s Quote the Raven marries smooth harmonies with an, at times, haunting aesthetic that both bewitches and allures the duo’s listeners. They draw influence from the likes of Joy Williams (Civil Wars), Brandi Carlile, and The Milk Carton Kids. The pair entertains audiences with their quick wit, offering quirky glimpses into the daily life of a touring musician.
An impromptu trip to Nashville in 2019 set the wheels in motion for their sophomore record – the sounds filling the Nashville airways reinvigorated and inspired them, and they found a new home in the Americana genre. Their upcoming record, titled Can’t Hold the Light, is a summation of the journeys that the pair have experienced over the past three years.
Those journeys have seen them collaborate with an A-list of Canadian artists, broaden their audience exponentially on all platforms, toured, and earn showcases and award nominations – including being named Music Newfoundland and Labrador’s 2019 Group of the Year.
Quote the Raven is Jordan Coaker (guitar & vocals) and Kirsten Rodden-Clarke (vocals).
