LOUISVILLE, KY — It seems some bands are destined for stardom. Emerging from quaint Midwestern hovels, fame thrust upon them, before they ever have a chance to reflect on what’s happened to them. While others claw their way out from the obscurity of an oversaturated throw-away cultural landscape, lifted up only by the hundreds of dirty hands they might have shaken once in some skeezy rock club or DIY club on the indie circuit. The dirty handprints on Quiet Hollers’ 21-year-old van tell which story is theirs.
This will be their third appearance at The Moonshiner’s Ball, over which time we’ve seen them crowd-source a critically acclaimed new album, record in-studio at Daytrotter and Audiotree, tour Continental Europe and land a spot in the 2017 Forecastle lineup.
