Quilt arose out of the Boston music scene in 2009. Guitarist and vocalist Anna Fox Rochinski is the daughter of Berklee College of Music faculty member Steve Rochinski. A jazz guitarist himself, he began teaching Anna the basics of the instrument when she was 13 years old. She later met guitarist and vocalist Shane Butler. A year after that, drummer Taylor McVay joined them (he has since left the band) and Quilt was born. The group released their first full-length album in 2011, moved to new York City in 2013, and recorded Plaza (album number three) in Brooklyn. Quilt will be one of the bands at The Mission Creek Festival in Iowa City in early April. Their music can be described as indie folk-rock with a psychedelic edge.
