Small Houses, the project of Philadephia-based Jeremy Quentin, impressed on 2013’s Exactly Where You Wanted To Be for his delicate melodies and poetic lyrics. Now, Quentin has announced forthcoming Small Houses album Still Talk; Second City, an effort a year in the making that features collaborations with Mike Brenner (Magnolia Electric Co., Songs:Ohia), Erin Rae (The Meanwhiles) and more. In anticipation of the album’s release, Small Houses has shared album track “Seventeen in Roselore,” which features vocalist Samantha Crain.
“I originally wrote this tune as a duet for Samantha Crain and I,” said Quentin. “At the time, I didn’t hold too much weight behind the direction of the words. Later, the imagery would become the theme for the entire album.”
