Having known each other most of their lives, Jamie Stewart and Hannah Elliott didn’t plan on starting a band. However, in 2021, with producers Jake Cartwright and Karl Ziegler they recorded their debut EP ‘Big Town’. Sophomore EP ‘Since July’ followed in May 2023, marking the duo’s commitment to their dreamy indie-pop sound.
The band’s vulnerable songwriting and Hannah’s ethereal vocal puts them in the same world as contemporary indie-pop/folk acts such as Samia, Phoebe Bridgers and Alvvays. Incorporating guitar riffs reminiscent of American Football, Arab Strap inspired drum loops, and storytelling akin to John Prine.
Quiet Houses have been championed by Radio 1’s Maia Beth and Gemma Bradley, seen placements on Spotify editorial playlists such as ‘The Most Beautiful Songs in the World’ and ‘New Music Friday’ (UK and US), as well as racking up millions of streams globally. Touring the UK extensively, they’ve played venues such as the Usher Hall, Electric Ballroom and Islington Assembly Hall. They are set to release new music late this year.
