TBQ has been 8 years in the making, and we put our blood, sweat and tears into making it.

To Be Quiet is an exorcism of these things that haunt us. Of the pain that comes with being alive now. Above all else, it is a celebration of our friendship and being able to turn pain into something beautiful with your mates.
