The Quiet Riders
The Quiet Riders came together in 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuck, Matt, Caden, and Josh got together for some impromptu recording sessions (because there was nothing else to do), and wrote much of their debut album on the spot. Despite the fact that the core four of this group had been playing music together for several years, with various projects, they never really sat down and wrote together. What came out of these group writing sessions was a new sound – something that felt totally different than what they had been producing with any of the other projects that they were a part of. So now, two years and several band name ideas later, they finally have an identity to coalesce around, and continue writing music as – The Quiet Riders.
Chestnut Grove’s music is a genre-defying mix of rock&roll with influence from funk, soul, R&B, new wave, alternative, prog rock, and beyond. The indie-rock quintet consists of members Dee, James Daniels, Zachary Winkler, John Tyler, and Gary Geers—friends from Perkiomenville, PA who started the band in 2011 after graduating high school.
After two albums, numerous EPs, and ten years of touring the East Coast and Midwest in a Ford Econoline, Chestnut Grove is now emerging as one of Philly’s most unique and energetic artists. The band has headlined venues including the Trocadero, World Cafe Live, and Ardmore Music Hall. Thanks to relentless touring, radio play, and festival presences, they have continued to gain popularity in their home city and across the northeastern and midwestern U.S.
Currently, Chestnut Grove is back in the studio with their 6th man Derek Chafin preparing to release their newest album, “Can’t Stand the Music,” in summer 2023. Get ready to hear some brand-new sounds this year!
