This is a new artist to me, Jeremy Quentin of Small Houses. Jeremy, from Flint Michigan, a good sign that the tough times Michigan has been soldering through the last twenty odd years, has left behind fertile soil for music making. Being not much more than twenty himself, it would seem that Mr Quentin has risen up like a stubborn wild flower out of a crack in the Flint concrete. There is nothing like hard traveling - to create the need for a uplifting song and a fresh vision.
"North" is the name of the new record by Small Houses and can be purchased here. They are currently on a small tour that will take them back to Michigan in December 8th to do a show at the Strutt in Kalamazoo. Anyone here in GR interested in a drive over to Kalamzoo to see the show?
If there are other Michigan based bands outside of Grand Rapids Michigan you think we should know about please share with us.
