Quinta has released two solo studio albums, My Sister, Boudicca (Tartaruga, 2009) and The Quick of The Heart (Peeler, 2017). They are available here and here.

Praise for The Quick of the Heart:

“An utterly beautiful and magical album…full of gems from start to finish” Cast the Dice

 

“The kind of album that’ll stop you in your tracks...an altogether otherworldly encounter” [sic] Magazine

 

“An album of gentle brilliance, poignancy, haunting melodies and infectious hooks” Was Ist Das

 

“So strikingly alien, yet brimming with such passion and humanity” Fresh on the Net

 

“Complex, luxurious, majestic, enchanting.“ Ondarock


The single track, Blood, dedicated to Quinta’s sister, mother, and aunt, was a recent ‘Headphones Moment’ on Lauren Laverne’s Morning Show and featured on Lauren's BBC Radio 6Music Recommends playlist.

The single track Astragal (the Most Wonderful) featured on BBC 6Music Tom Robinson’s evening show as a Fresh On The Net “absolute highlight”. 

Praise for My Sister, Boudicca:


“Wistful, sparse, and transportive; this record sparkles with a sense of play, of wilful 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.
