“Texas troubadours Quiet Morning and the Calamity sound exactly like a band with that name should… as introspective and thoughtful as the Mimi Fariña-Joan Baez song that inspired the first part of their name, or as rollicking as their punk pasts suggest.”

“One of the most exciting examples today is a fusion of punk and Americana styles and one of the best examples of that union in Houston is Quiet Morning & the Calamity… Son of the Sad Soul, the band’s 2014 release, is chock full of those unbridled emotions and attitudes.”

“Sean Ramos’ quintet has been bringing the same cigarette breath and bleary-eyed soul of the great ’90s bands Whiskeytown and Uncle Tupelo to Houston’s finer small venues since late 2012”

“The country swagger and multi-instrumental sounds of Quiet Morning & the Calamity will also be on hand. If you’ve never caught this group, then I beg you to go see them. They might be one of the tightest bands going with more happening in one bar of music than anyone else in town.”

“The band put out a pretty great EP called “Son Of The Sad Soul.” The opener, “27 Years” had the vigor of a Tweedy written Uncle Tupelo song, with the twang of an Old 97’s song. The beauty of this roots based alt country, is that it’s the type of sound that could be played in pretty much every honky tonk across Texas and beyond.”
