Folk and Friendship: maeve & quinn’s ‘Jeweler’s Row’ Is a Delight
maeve & quinn have released their first song since the 2021 EP Star-Crossed, and it’s beautiful.
“Jeweler’s Row” is a song about friendship, connection and acceptance. Inspired by a walk around Chicago’s Loop, maeve & quinn — the work of twin sisters Maris and Bryce O’Tierney — explore the unconditional acceptance only a good friendship can provide.
maeve & quinn are two of the most underrated artists in the business right now. Both are classically trained musicians, receiving degrees from Northwestern’s Bienen School of Music.
This musical expertise is evident in the gorgeous piano melodies of “Jeweler’s Row.” The song itself is entirely self-written and self-produced.
Matched with electric guitars, “Jeweler’s Row” is a delightful summer track. The pair’s voices add a warm, home-like feel to the song, with vocals reminiscent of Maggie Rogers.
Their vocals are soft and almost haunting, sticking with the listener after the song ends. Their effortless flow draws audiences back to them. “Jeweler’s Row” is a song that simply does not lose its replay value.
The sisters are originally from Alaska before moving to Illinois for college. They eventually traveled to Ireland — their ancestral homeland. In their travels, they have found a unique sound that combines alt-pop, folk and rock while taking inspiration from Irish music.
Aside from their burgeoning folk-pop career, maeve & quinn are skilled in dance, poetry and orchestral composition. Their symphonic work has been performed by both the Chicago Composers Orchestra and Anchorage Symphony Orchestra. Watch the performance of “moraine” here:
Around seven years after their formation, maeve & quinn are finally gracing audiences with a full-length album. Another Door is slated to be released on Sept. 8.
With “Jeweler’s Row” as the LP’s lead single, Another Door promises to deliver a plethora of bright folk tunes.
