The Quiet American is husband and wife duo, Aaron and Nicole Keim. A home-grown modern folk revival, their music incorporates ballads, banjo breakdowns, raggy choruses, gospel duets and other dusty Americana gems, all delivered on a wide variety of acoustic instruments, some of which Aaron built himself.
Thier new album 'Wild Bill Jones' is a 15 song saga of this classic anti-hero. The tunes and songs on Wild Bill Jones have been stripped back one by one, even slowed down in some cases, with new melodies built, new words created, and original songs crafted from snippets of inspiration. On the album, you can hear an old-time string band rubbing shoulders with a back-alley hokum jug band, or vintage country duets sounding off with bluegrass harmonies
