The Cool Quest is one of Holland’s hardest working bands with over 500 shows, lots of airplay and several awards to their name. Besides home country The Netherlands, TCQ is working hard to conquer Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Eastern Europe. They played several major (showcase) festivals like Reeperbahn (2017), Eurosonic (2018) and Tallinn Music Week (2018).
The band members met more or less by accident at a jam session in 2010 and got along so well, they decided to start working together on a regular basis. This eventually led to their first album ‘Funkin’ Badass’ (2014) including hit single ‘Shine’ and the interest from (inter)national media.
By adding a guitar player to their line-up, the band decided to take on a different direction by renewing their sound which currently can be described as a mix between classic hip hop and modern pop music. With a dash of light-foot funk, The Cool Quest reminds strongly of the energy from early 90’s hip hop. Their EP ‘Pulsar’ (2016) and singles ‘Heatwaves’ (2016), ‘Coastline’ (2016) and ‘Runnin’’ (2017) have set the tone for the release of their second album ‘VIVID’ (2018). Another song from this album ‘Goodlife’ is featured on the soundtrack of the worldwide distributed EA’s NHL 2019 game.
