Quinn Sands and Richard Hearn standing in front of an old abandoned CabooseWe are husband and wife singer/songwriters Quinn Sands and Richard Hearn, out of Cleveland, Ohio. Our style is best described as alt. folk/rock Americana – a unique blend of our musical backgrounds and influenced by the roots of American music, with an emphasis on the story and sweet harmonies.

In 2017, we released our first album, entitled Time Is A Line, which features a line-up of some of the most talented musicians from Northeast Ohio.

We primarily perform as a bass & guitar duo, often incorporating other instruments such as glockenspiel, Shruti-box and percussion. Most of our shows have been close to home in Northeast, Ohio, at venues such as the Beachland Ballroom & Tavern, Brother’s Lounge and at the legendary Barking Spider Tavern. We’ve also performed at the Painesville Party in the Park, Spice Acre’s Plated Dinner events, the Lake County Fair, Walk All Over Waterloo, the 2018 Lake Erie Folk Festival, Riverdog Music in Wakeman, OH, The Factory in Sharon, PA, and Bloom Café & Listening Room in Bristol, TN.

We’ve supported some of our favorite performers such as Tommy Womack, Ray Bonneville, Maria Muldaur, Rod Picott and Kevin Gordon, as well as The Ragbirds and Brent Cobb. In 2018, we performed in Dublin, Ireland at the legendary Whelan’s Bar (in support of Brent Cobb) and The Underground Live Music Venue.

Upcoming Performances:

COVID-19 sure put a bust on 2020 for live performances. We do not have plans for performing in front of a live audience for the remainder of this year. However, during this time, we we have written a bunch of new songs we are in the process of recording for future release, and we will be participating in a few live streaming events (see dates listed below, and check back again for more dates as they are added).

In the meantime, don’t forget to visit our Bandcamp page, and if you’d like to order some Sands & Hearn “Lonely For My baby coffee”, drop us a line. Cheers!
