About The Cabaret Quicksand
The Cabaret Quicksand released their debut album The Company You Keep on BS Live Rock Records digitally on March 2nd 2018 and on Vinyl/CD April 5 of the same year. TCQ was formed by Southern Ontario bassist/songwriter Craig Rewbury in 2016, who went right into the analog world of recording on 2-inch tape. The debut album was well received with videos made for “TREPIDATION” and “REMISSION”.
In late 2019 Craig started working with Producer/Guitarist/Songwriter Paul Gigliotti (formerly of the pop duo Wave) and recording at Ignition Audio in Niagara Falls. This resulted the releases “Save Me Now”,”Burning Daylight”, and then “All You Ever Wanted to Know (Sleeper 1973)” with an accompanying video. The 4th installment entitled “COLOURS” is due out on Jan 13/2021 featuring the voice of Serena Pryne from The Mandevilles.
Paul and Craig are influenced by many of the same artists and the chemistry and process has been a blast! The new songs have captured several British influences and nuances like The Beatles, Oasis, Johnny Marr, The Stone Roses and Muse to name a few.
ABOUT THE SINGLE
“Colours” featuring Serena Pryne – out now
“As you know, more than ever there is a tug of war between the left and right political spectrums and as a result the world has become divided. Each thinks their approach /methodology is superior and each are willing to throw the other under the bus to prove who is “right” and definitely blame who’s “wrong”. MSM skews their journalism to support their narrative. As a human race, we have resorted to character assassination and shaming each other on all media platforms for the political, religious and social beliefs we possess. We are described by colours more than ever whether it be our appearance, political spectrum, occupation and so on. The song is really a play on all of these things. If you’re prepared to divulge the colours to describe yourself, maybe it’s better to keep it private, otherwise you’re risking going into “the lions den” and being pre-judged and dismissed by people that represent other colours. The colour ideology has become a violent extension of society. Afro-Americans can definitely attest to that as history keeps repeating itself. We need to change it before it’s too late.” – Craig Rewbury
