Best Artist / Band To Enjoy Quietly

Quiet Parade

Quiet Parade is Trevor Murphy's baby, and what a lovely baby it is. “I've been playing bass in Halifax for six or seven years,” says Murphy, “but Quiet Parade is the band where I'm at the front of the stage and I write all of the songs. It’s very much is my pet project.” If the tender crafting and up-front honesty of Quiet Parade's first two albums is any indication of their forthcoming vinyl release, then Murphy and company have a busy summer of touring ahead of them. The album, titled *Please Come Home. We Hate it Here Without You,* is being released on Acadian Embassy, the label Murphy co-runs, and is set to hit the streets April 19. For those lacking a turntable, as with all Acadian Embassy releases, Quiet Parade's latest will also be available for download by donation. A Halifax album-release show is slated for April 23 at 1313 Hollis. ---MH
