Quiles & Cloud
Quiles & Cloud
Acoustic duo out of San Francisco, Maria Quiles and Rory Cloud bring an intimate, soulful and spellbinding new sound to the indie-folk scene. The two deliver a performance that is at once familiar and genuine; capturing the spirit of the acoustic tradition, while allowing their individual influences to shine through.

Since coming together, Maria and Rory have been turning heads at every corner; with many shows already under their belts in northern California and Los Angeles. Their debut album, "Long Time Coming" produced by Grammy winning engineer, Steve Horowitz was released in July, 2012.

Homegrown and haunting, Kelly McFarling's voice spirals powerfully, and progressively over a bed of oldtimey instrumentation. She is from Atlanta, GA, where she learned to sing in church choirs and baseball stadiums, and learned to write through the stories of Flannery O' Connor and Toni Morrison. She has since wandered out West, where she can be found in the back rooms of San Francisco bars plucking her Banjo and singing siren songs. Dubbed 'original rhythm and Bluegrass,' her songs are inspired by hard truths and transitions, with bold honest lyrics and authentic melodies that stay with you long after the song is over. McFarling's outgoing and adventurous spirit comes through in her lyrics, her live performances, and in the music's indulgence in elements outside its clear influences of folk, oldtime, blues and country. Using her distinct percussive style of clawhammer banjo to back up her rich voice, she pays homage to her southern roots while giving them a new home in her original sound. Her live performances are versatile and have earned her a rapidly growing and loyal fan base in the Bay Area. She can perform in intimate house concerts, and fill rock clubs with the sound of her full band, featuring rich upright bass, perfectly placed percussion, and lush slide guitar. Songs are to be taken whole heartedly, preferable on the shirt, outside of sleeves. They accompany a sense of longing, nostalgia, and the urge to sit down with your oldest friends, or your newest love. The grass is blue, the moon is shiny. Drink up darlin' its homebrew.
