EMMA COOK AND QUESTIONABLE COMPANY
Born in a dimly lit basement in the Old North End, forged in the eclectic crucible of the thriving Burlington Vermont arts scene, three friends combined their experienced and nuanced styles to entertain friends and satisfy their own artistic aspirations.
Raised on Funk, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Soul and Folk, Questionable Company is at once classic and invigorating. The three members, form a small band with a curiously large sound; a folk-funk trio with a gritty, honest and soulful feel.
Q Co.'s repertoire includes mostly original tunes by Emma Cook, the singer songwriter and rhythmic instrumentalist. A Michigan transplant to Vermont, Cook notes the wild beauty of the people and places that fill her everyday as musical inspiration. Q Co.'s performances engage audiences through their funky grooves, intimate demeanor, and melodic lyrics. An effect pleasing to the mood, the soul, and the dance floor.
Cook's voice can seamlessly transition from big band jazz to coffee shop blues. Her lyrics and the bands tightly woven natural feel make them at home in any setting. Appropriate in your local cafe or on a full stage at a high volume venue, Questionable Company is a no holds barred band that continues to impress.
Here's what the press has to say about them:
"Cook's vocals largely define Questionable Company's lifting, expressive sound."
"Feltus' drumming is tender, while Guyton's melodic bass lines keep things wistful."
"Cook's vocals...hushed and deep, and Guyton's moody bass reverberates throughout...gorgeously dark"
"Questionable Company is both surprising and pleasing. It incorporates standard folk lyrical themes with touches of jazz and undulating funk grooves. With a sound that is soulful and distinct - but familiar enough to satisfy the Burlington funk crowd this trio's got a good thing going."
Sarah and the Wild Versatile are a fresh addition to the Boston music scene; teaming their long-standing performance experience and wide range of musical expertise with unique instrumental ingenuity and lyrical prowess. Ranging from blues to synth rock, folk to soul, and most anything in between, Sarah and the Wild Versatile have been taking the Boston Music scene by storm; performing with Grammy award winner Booker T. Jones, Nick Moss Band, Danny Bedrosians Secret Army featuring members of Parliament Funkadelic, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Jesse Dee, Ruby Rose Fox, and many others.
