Although it sounds like folk outfit Quiles & Cloud
are embracing their foggy hometown of San Francisco in their band name, it’s actually the combination of Maria Quiles (voice and guitar) and Rory Cloud (voice and guitar). Formed in 2011 and often joined by Oscar Westesson on upright bass, the group does in fact create some of the city’s most atmospheric acoustic roots music. This month, Quiles & Cloud will release their third full-length album, Beyond the Rain. The trio ramps up to the album’s release with a performance of new material on Saturday, Jan. 9, at HopMonk Tavern, 691 Broadway, Sonoma. 8pm. Free. 707.935.9100.
