After two fan-funded studio recordings and nearly four years touring the US as an independent act traversing the continent in a small VW hatchback, San Francisco-based QUILES & CLOUD (Maria and Rory, respectively) have teamed up with GRAMMY-award-winning artist and producer Alison Brown for their latest album, BEYOND THE RAIN, to be released January 29, 2016 on Compass Records.
Human emotion and world strife play out as central themes throughout the new album. “We’re often drawn to songs with a bit of darkness in them,” says Cloud. “Topics like mortality and loss come up fairly often, but it’s not all bad. We always find a ray of sunlight in there somewhere. Like overcoming fear, or accepting the past and finding something worthwhile beyond the darkness. That’s kind of what the album title (Beyond The Rain) is all about.”
With Beyond The Rain, Quiles & Cloud have marked a pivotal moment in their development as a group, demonstrating their continued ability to combine subtle precision with stark grit and creative exploration. In 2016, Quiles & Cloud will be back on the road performing across the country in support of the new release. Official tour dates and more information to be announced.
