About Queens County Roots


The first single off the new EP with Jesse Maxwell is out! Check out "Fantasma"!

"a touch of genius" --Buzz Slayers
"kicks up some seriously rootsy dust" --Tinnitist

QCR has been called “the gospel of real life shit” (Divide and Conquer). The Queens, NYC-based band is home to the Southern-flavored songwriting of guitarist Marlon Hurt. As an expat Atlanta native living in New York City, Marlon’s music showcases a meeting of opposites: blues meets pop; hooks meet poetry. This playful take on established Americana styles led some critics to declare QCR one of the best emerging bands (Indie Spoonful; Please Pass the Indie).

QCR works closely with artist and producer Jesse Maxwell.

"It's almost like the gospel of real life shit" --Divide and Conquer

"one of the best emerging bands" --Indie Spoonful

"tight as hell" --Please Pass the Indie

"If I was a good executive producer I'd be able to tell you everything about this band" --Indie Music LIVE!
