Carolyn Mark and NQ Arbuckle

Carolyn Mark and NQ Arbuckle are cooperators, consensus builders, confederates and... collaborators. They both know that, if you choose to walk the path of the itinerant musician, there's a helluva lotta road and precious few kindred souls. Which makes finding someone you can make music with that much more exciting... even if you have to trek all the way from Victoria, B.C. (home base of Carolyn) to Toronto (home base of NQ Arbuckle) to do it. Their new album, Let's Just Stay Here, is what teamwork is all about.

Carolyn Mark and NQ Arbuckle kick off the first leg of their tour this week with 2 nights at the Dakota Tavern (Wed Oct 21 and Thurs Oct 22).

Wed Oct 21 & Thurs Oct 22- The Dakota Tavern, Toronto, ON
Fri Oct 23-The Merchant Ale House, St Catherine's, ON
Sat Oct 24- The Grad Club, Kingston, ON
Tues Oct 27-The Montreal House, Peterborough, ON
Wed Oct 28-The Casbah, Hamilton, ON
Thurs Oct 29-The Starlight, Waterloo, ON
Friday Oct 30- Casa Del Popolo, Montreal, QC
Saturday Oct 31- The Black Sheep Inn, Wakefield, QC

Go to for the hilarious interview she did with herself about the new album!

... those who favor the hopeless storytelling of Townes Van Zandt and Gillian Welch will love this album. -

This a dark, gory country album, one dyed in the wool of its influences from start-to-finish, let by the gorgeous brood emboldened in Mark and NQ Arbuckle’s gravelly twang, one that lilts almost intrinsically well with Mark. - Clash Magazine

There are breathtaking moments (like the sparkling piano ballad, Officer Down or when NQ takes the lead on the lonely road ready Saskatoon Tonight and it evolves into beautiful harmonies) that make you feel like NQ and Marks have the potential to evolve into a Can-country version of Nicks and Buckingham. -

As notorious for having a ball as they are renowned for their songwriting prowess, Mark and Neville Quinlan aren't household names yet but are at the vanguard of folk and country songwriting in Canada. However incisive in their respective observational tunes, there's an undercurrent of clever fun running through their material that's refreshingly pure. Mark and Quinlan can also conjure heartbreak with quick, precise turns of phrase and, by and large, there's a forlorn tone to these songs. - Exclaim!

Infused with a sort of honky-tonk simplicity that isn't quite alt-rock and isn't quite country, the record rolls through 12 songs of truck-stop-ready music that calls to mind visions of lonely, weathered men and fading, weary women staring longingly into their cups of coffee. -
