Cursed by the absolute need to create, and blessed by that very same virtue; "Dreamcatcher" is his manifesto, spawned from the purest place in his soul. This truth in words - an eight chapter short story - is coupled with some of Canada's premiere talent. Including collaborations with producers Fresh Kils (Mad Dukes, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, The Extremities), Muneshine (Pete Rock, DJ Spinna, D-Sisive), DJ Manifest (Muzion, Koriass) and more; "Dreamcatcher" reads as an eerie war story of a soldier visualizing the battlefield. Credits Even prior to any publicly released sounds, Quills has received some impressive nods for a debut artist; being awarded the "EP/Commercially released single" grant from FACTOR Canada for the "Dreamcatcher" EP as well as a "Viral video" grant from MuchFACT for its title track and introductory single. Doug Bohay, artist management for Last Gang Entertainment, attests that Quills "has crafted a fierce and honest debut, that beams with quality production, vocal execution and refreshingly inspiring lyrics." Having being billed throughout 2013 for a host of live performances, including acclaimed festivals such as Le Festival MEG, Under Pressure, and POP Montreal, the future appears to be promising. Welcome to the awakening...
"Loyal Booth readers are undoubtedly familiar with Strange Music, Tech N9ne’s long running, highly-successful indie label, who has long been bringing us dope music. I suspect it won’t be long until Booth newcomer Quills too is part of that quality crew. While he has no connection to the label now, the sound and skill he showcases on new promo single and EP title track Dreamcatcher would make him a perfect addition to their roster. Producer Fresh Kils’ minimalist, ominous boardwork gets the mysterious, dark cut started off on the right foot.
Quills, a Montreal native, takes an introspective approach to his bars, exhibiting a tense, boisterous flow that would likely bring a tear to Tech’s eye (hopefully it won’t smear his face paint). Dreamcatcher (the EP) is set to drop this fall, but with a Booth debut this strong, I am sure we will see Quills well before the leaves change color". Dj Booth.net Read more on Last.fm.
