Ways and Needs @ In the Woods, January 2020
27 December 2020

We stumbled upon a nice memory dated january 2020, when the people of In the Woods podium invited us to come play our songs.

Live version of Ways and Needs of a Night Horse.

Into the Night
3 October 2020

We are gliding into fall. Over the summer each of us has worked on a version of a Point Quiet song and made a recording.
Now that the days are getting darker and colder we will share them with you one by one.
First one is Pascal's new version of a song from the 2007 album Deseronto, Into the Night. (CRS/Continental Record Services)
May it warm your hearts.

Many thanks to WG for the beautiful footage.

NCRV Radio 2003
25 June 2020

In those times of introspection, diving into old tapes and live recordings can bring out long-forgotten tracks, buried in the lost days between 2 albums, or left too long off setlists along the years.

This is exactly what happened, digging out 2 old White Sands tracks recorded in duo format for Dutch national radio NCRV back in 2004 , prior to our stint in the Finals of the Dutch national singersongwriter contest De Grote Prijs van Nederland. Sure, our hair was darker then, our hearts lighter, our freedoms unimpeded and our hunger endless, but the songs were already trying to paint stories and reach the listener's soul. Sixteen years later, we're still here, crafts-men and -women, always trying our best at telling stories and still hungry.

Hope you like those tracks.

Dear friends, we hope this finds you well. These are uncertain days filled with unclear sorrows and dumbed down joys, but we hope to have a treat for you that will carry you away and then back into the sunlight and on the road: our friends at film collective Stift have graced us with a truly magic short movie inspired by our track "Highway in your head" (from our latest album, Walking in the Wild) and we'd like to share it with you, and will do so tomorrow 13-5-2020, hoping this lifts you up. Keep safe.

Out of the Woods radio
21 May 2019

Out of the Woods is a radio show dedicated to (mostly) acoustic roots music. It is broadcast internationally by a variety of radio stations and it's available online as a podcast. If you like our music, you might very well like this program. We do! Mainly because of the excellent music that Jon 'Chip' Colcord plays. But also because he played several songs from 'Walking in the Wild' in the past weeks. Grab it or stream it today. And tell your friends!

Press Quotes
9 May 2019

'Walking in the Wild' got great reviews so far. Here are some quotes. Check our Press page for an overview of all the reviews.

Walking in the Wild kent geen zwak moment […] griezelig mooie songs Point Quiet laat andermaal horen Nederland’s beste en consistentste leverancier van omvervalste Country Noir te zijn. - Heaven

Overheerlijk recept van Americana, folk, alt-country, singer-songwritermuziek en blues - De Subjectivisten

Op “Walking In The Wild” wordt door Point Quiet geëxcelleerd in soberheid, samenzang en schoonheid - Altcoutryforum

was die Eindringlichkeit, Geradlinigkeit und vor allen Dingen Transparenz betrifft […] dringen Point Quiet mittlerweile in Gefilde vor, die bislang eher Songwriter-Legenden wie Townes Van Zandt […] oder in diesem Falle Willie Nelson […] vorbehalten gewesen sein mögen. -

De prachtige ingetogen zang van Pascal Hallibert kleurt deze songs tot mooie schilderijen op al even briljante, doch sober gespeelde muziek. - Rootstime

een van de smaakmakers in de Nederlandse (en internationale) rootsscene van het moment - De krenten uit de pop

Verbraak | Van Bijnen
19 October 2016

Feel like having a New orleans-vibe, enjoy a lonesome Mariachi-trumpeteer, an old-fashioned music machine’s rhythm section, a creamy sousaphone plus some wild banjo- and dobrosounds…

PQ's very own Joost (aka Verbraak) and Jan (aka Van Bijnen) burn down the house with their well-chosen mixture of blues, New Orleans and bluegrassy music.

Their first CD will be released by Continental Record Services (CRS): 2nd Line City.

Sounds like: Ry Cooder, Dr. John, Willie Nelson, Louis Armstrong...

The album is available in our webstore. Pre orders are only € 12,--!!!
