Quiet Lion is a Indie folk band based in Vermont fronted by duo Tommy Alexander and Alanna Grace Flynn . Quiet Lion has shared the stage with acts such as: Night Beds, Spirit Family Reunion, Milo Greene, Kevin Devine, Melkit, Alpenglow, and jenny o.

“Whatever You Say, by local duo Quiet Lion, is by far the label’s strongest to date. The album suggests not only maturation by the songwriting tandem of Alexander and Alanna Grace Flynn, but of the label itself.” -Dan Bolles, 7 Days VT.

”One listen of Alexander’s new EP, and you’ll see that what we’re dealing with is a modern day Jack Kerouac, whose penchant is for an on-the-road experience and whose mission is to capture what comes from the soul.” -Jesse Aizenstat, Huffington Post

“Listening to the latest album from Quiet Lion entitled Whatever You Say feels like an organic, experience. It’s filled with warm acoustic instruments like guitars, fiddles and upright bass that when they play together feels intrinsic and natural. The whole listening experience has a rustic quality to it that reminded me of a homey cabin in the woods, simple pleasures and getting back to the basics. Whatever You Say does a great job at eliciting some of the most essential and pure emotions from ourselves as melancholy, hope and beauty are sometimes simultaneously experienced. Overall, this album is as pleasant as the sunrise and as honest as the fields the farmers work in. Do yourself a favor and take a listen.” -Matt Jensen, The Equal Ground

 

Tommy Alexander is a singer-songwriter based out of Portland OR. He writes songs of travel and hope, of family and giving back. His songwriting is potent and powerful, while he doesn’t waste many words. Tommy has released material under his own name and as a part of folk duo Quiet Lion. Since 2012, he has independently released two full-length albums and two EPs. Tommy started writing songs in 2007, after deciding to drop out of college and quit playing baseball. He had never written or played music until he got a guitar for his 21st birthday.

“The downright truth about Alexander and Jenke Records is that it is an expression of rebellion in a society that is trapped within institutional conformities and down-the-road retirement plans. Filled with an introspective and strikingly truthful style of songwriting, his music can be downright mind-bending — especially for those of us who have grown used to Pandora’s corporate jukebox and the cultural clichés that run with it.”
