Maeve & Quinn

 

Described as “anything but ordinary” by the Chicago Tribune, MAEVE & QUINN is the duo of Chicago-based, Alaska-raised twin sisters Maris and Bryce O’Tierney, multi-instrumentalists, songwriters, and composers. Maeve & Quinn’s music fuses alt rock, pop, and folk influences, distinguished by lyrical vocal harmonies and dynamic instrumental interplay. Classically trained (voice, guitar, violin, piano), the duo also draws on improvisation in their practice.

Maeve & Quinn’s collaboration as twin sisters is conversational and fluid between past and present. They bring together lyrics and melodies from their respective experiences for songs of layered perspective, addressing themes of memory, truth, and relationship. Maeve & Quinn’s music has a feeling of landscape, and draws from multiple points of origin: where the sisters grew up (Alaska), their country of heritage (Ireland), and present home (Chicago).

Maeve & Quinn have performed their music and poetry in concert with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and the Poetry Foundation; premiered their symphonic compositions with the Chicago Composers Orchestra and Anchorage Symphony Orchestra; and collaborated with dancers for film works, most recently with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

 
Following their 2018 release something overheard, something overhead, their EP star-crossed (August 2021) was featured on Bandcamp’s ‘New & Notable’ releases. Their first full-length LP, Another Door, released September 2023. 
 

Zoe Lemon

Hi! I’m Zoe and I write songs, refurbish my 1979 camper van, and try not to burn down the kitchen (seriously, I’m a terrible cook). While studying classical violin at university I discovered my true passion was songwriting … but I had devoted most of my childhood to refining my skills as an orchestral musician. It felt like an impossible shift and I packed up my minivan and left on a 9-month road trip where I wrote a collection of songs on my violin. Finally returning to Philly, I went into the studio with my friends at North Room Records to record these songs properly…and here’s the proof!
