Siobhan Quinn and Michael Bowers

NAME: Siobhan Quinn
BAND AFFILIATION: Siobhan Quinn & Michael Bowers (and formerly partnered with Ben Murray, who is performing with us at Caffe Lena)
INSTRUMENT: Voice, all kinds. I can’t get enough of the varied and beautiful sounds the voice makes – whether it’s rock, folk, heavy-hitting blues or classical voice doesn’t matter to me. Love it all! And I recently bought a uke. Can’t play it yet, but I’m in love.

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Oh, gosh. I scarfed my big brothers’ albums for years (I have four)! The first time I bought an album I went whole hog and actually bought FOUR: Aerosmith’s “Get Your Wings,” Judy Collins’ “Who Knows Where The Time Goes?,” Stevie Wonder’s “Talking Book” and Santana’s “Moonflower” – all used – at a (wasn’t it Music Shack?) record store on River Street in Troy, near the very, very creepy “Skinema” Art. It was so worth it. I think I got them all for maybe $12.
