In a previous life Q was known to friends and acquaintances as Colm Quearney, the guitarist and songwriter with not one but TWO of Ireland’s more daring bands (DRAGONFLY 91-94 & LIR 94-99).

His ‘01 debut “The World’s Not Round” and the follow-up in '04 "Body Electric" put Colm on the map as a solo star and Colm simply became Q to the delight of small children and grown-ups everywhere. With a reputation as one of Ireland's leading guitarists, Q has been playing in many of the country's top acts including Jerry Fish & the Mudbug Club, Mundy, Pugwash, & The Pale.

Two songs from "The World's Not Round" appear on revered english director Suzie Halewood's new film "Bigga Than Ben", recently featured at Edinburgh Film Fest followed by Moscow and Brooklyn. The film will be release in the UK, USA, & Russia in September through Swipe Films.

After the release of "Body Electric", Q built his own studio on the northside of Dublin "The Qube Ananlogue & Digital" where he's been ever since working on various oddball projects including Producing The Pale's "contents of a shipwreck" album released in 2007 on 1969 records to great acclaim as well as The Ghandis, Hugh Buckley and many others.

Most importantly he's been recording his third album, set for release in early 2009. New songs "Sea Storm" & "As Feelings Go By" are now available for download via www.myspace.com/colmquearney, these songs provide a preview of what is no doubt going to be a cracking album! Featuring drummers Graham Hopkins, Johhny Boyle, and bass player Robbie Malone, plus guest vocalists Thomas Walsh of Pugwash fame, and the soulful and angelic Jenny Lindfors and Laura Sheeran. its spector pop, folksynth, rock - theres a new one for ya !!!

Q
“NO PULSE”
Out Jan 27.
From the album “Body Electric” on Strange Vibe Records (RMG-Chart)
www.colmquearney.com

Special Edition single containing all of Q’s hip singles to date, including his latest offering, the riff-fest that is “No Pulse”. Also included are “Carol”, “Baby Lets Dance”, and from Q's first album "The World's Not Round" in 2001 the hard to find “Reckless”....think of it as a mini-Greatest Hits!

“A true pop instinct, elegantly fusing gospel, indie and country-tinged FM rock” ~ Irish Times
“(Q) pens infuriatingly catchy songs…a slow burning album whose mariachi-tinged moments call Calexico to mind” ~ Irish Independent
“A subtle gem which belongs on a perpetual radio playlist” ~ Evening Herald
“classic pop moods with immaculate playing" - Event Guide

 

In a previous life Q was known to friends and acquaintances as Colm Quearney, the guitarist and songwriter with not one but TWO of Ireland’s more daring bands (DRAGONFLY 1991-94 & LIR 1994-1999). As if being one of the country’s top guitarists in both the studio and the road for headline acts such as Jerry Fish & the Mudbug Club, Mundy, Mark Geary, Bronagh Gallagher, and Pugwash were not enough, Colm released his first solo album “The World’s Not Round” to overwhelming critical success in 2001 on his own Strange Vibe Records. The success of his debut proved to be a beacon for the independent music community thus proving you don’t need to be signed to be major record company to make a brilliant album!

During the tail end 2003 Colm simply became Q to the delight of small children and grown-ups everywhere. His current band, HALLUCINATIONS, features Zamo Riffman [drums], Andy McDonald [bass], and Bill Blackmore [trumpet]. With the classic power quartet line-up in place, the band went to work on what would emerge as the “The Body Electric” album, covering a wide range of genres from 60’s Spector pop lushness to esoteric garage rock to reckless abandoned roots with a twist.

Featuring the previously hip singles "Carol" & "Baby Lets Dance" and now "No Pulse", Q's critically aclaimed album "Body Electric" manages to broaden horizons everywhere. Truly a must buy for every household.
