Those Folk Biography:

Those Folk are Lawrence Menard and Clare Quinn. They were summoned together by the power of music on the streets of Edinburgh and have since been an inseparable duo. Roaming from the UK, to Ireland, Berlin, California, Louisiana, Brisbane, Tasmania and every in between, songwriting and recording along the way.

Those Folk were based in York, England where Lawrence finished producing Clare's debut solo album, Emerald and their musical camaraderie flourished.  Los Angeles, Lawrence’s hometown was the birthplace of their debut [set to be released in 2014] duo album, which was self-recorded onto reel-to-reel tape machines.

Influences range from Clare's background; an upbringing laden with Australian Folk Festivals and Lawrence's grounding in the English “Zydefolk & Roll” band, The Buffalo Skinners. They dance fluently between soul, blues, bluegrass, roots, reggae and ragtime, whilst perform on a broad array of instruments including; shared lead vocals, guitar, piano accordion, ukulele, banjo, harmonicas and a healthy dose of foot stomping.
