Quinn the Brain is an alternative rock power trio consisting of members Arta Salehi (guitar/vocals), Billy Kimmel (drums) and Jacob Detiveaux (bass) from Houston, Texas. The band started coming together when Arta and Billy attended a mutual friends’ wedding and discovered that they both were in need of a new musical project. Arta’s previous band had recently disbanded, and Billy was ready to play something new. So in February 2016, Arta and Billy started playing together and by June the power trio was completed with a bassist. Ready to kick things into gear, Quinn the Brain recorded their three-song EP, Comes in 3s, with Mark Kidney of The Stone Sound in December. By May 2017 the bassist left and was replaced by Jacob in June. The band officially launched September 21st and released their EP online.
