Quinta’s first record, 'My Sister, Boudicca', was released in 2009 on indie label Tartaruga.
As well as her solo project, Quinta has worked with Bat for Lashes, Lou Rhodes, Scanner, Penguin Café, Marques Toliver, Patrick Wolf, and Radiohead’s Philip Selway, as well as pioneering ‘paperteers’, The Paper Cinema and award-winning acrobatic troupes Ockham's Razor and Mimbre.
She was 2015/16 Music Fellow at Rambert Dance Company and 2016/17 MIRChina resident (www.quintawu.wordpress.com). She is one quarter of all-female experimental arts collective, Collectress (www.collectress.co.uk).
She mainly plays keyboards, violin, viola, musical saw and ukelele, but dips into a bigger box of tricks including clarinet, recorder, melodica, and glockenspiel when adventures call.
Praise for My Sister, Boudicca:
"Wistful, sparse, and transportive; this record sparkles with a sense of play, of willful originality and effortless grace." Danny Wadeson, The 405.
"As the album comes to a close, you get the idea you’ve just been to the most peculiar recital you’re ever likely to experience. Quinta comes from a different place, and a different age. There aren’t enough albums these days that are genuinely fascinating. This one is. Cherish it." Sam Shepherd, The Line of Best Fit.
"This is probably the strangest, most beguiling record I’ve heard in a long time. It’s hard to describe as it is so singular that comparisons are difficult and almost unhelpful. As a work of art it is wonderful: strange, beautiful and irresistibly unique." Nick Lewis, God is in the TV.
