Q is not a nickname nor is it short for anything. Q is simply his name. And much like his name, his music is stripped from anything superfluous. His latest EP ‘The Shave Experiment’ (2020) is filled with sparse, alternative R&B bound together by a spellbinding falsetto, electric guitars and soulful storytelling. The beautiful self-produced EP draws inspiration from the 70’s and 80s but remains unmistakably contemporary.


This young multi-instrumentalist has music running through his veins, both of his parents worked with prominent reggae and dancehall artists such as Sean Paul, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer. Maybe that is why everything that Q touches seems so effortless. Music is his legacy and judging from all the attention his music has attracted, it’s obvious that the future belongs to Q.

Q will perform at Stay Out West on Friday August 12.

August 11-13
