''Heavily groove-based, Qwill’s music is like a soul/R&B spouse with multiple mistresses of Latin beats, modern jazz, and trance/drum and bass'' - Performer Magazine
Qwill, aka Jesse Ciarmataro, is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer currently based in Salem, MA. His music cannot be traditionally labeled, weaving electronica, roots, downtempo, jazz and R&B, but it is Qwill’s soulful voice that truly grounds his sound. He performs regularly with a full band, as well as beat-backed or acoustic duo and solo sets. No matter the venue or format, every Qwill show is a soulful reflection of where he is as an artist on that given day. As a vocalist, he is known for his intensity and passion, dedicated to experimentation and always pushing the envelope.
Qwill is not new to the scene. He has toured the US, Canada and Europe and has shared the stage with such notable acts as Richie Havens, Kaki King and The Violent Femmes, to name a few. He has also been an active session player for some of Boston’s talented artists such as Jesse Dee, Ryan Montbleau, Christian McNeill and Sea Monsters. He has collaborated with MC Esoteric, including the single “Falling”. His music has been featured on MTV and in various independent films, and featured on the ''Groove Lounge'' compilation series from TVP Records showcasing New England's top producers and recording artists. Qwill’s single “Ghost” was named one of the “Top 10 Local Songs of 2016” by Sound of Boston, and was featured on his latest EP entitled “Phoenix” on his own label Simple Truth Records.

‘’Art : Beat’’, a colorful collaboration by husband and wife team Bruce and Tracy Jones, is inspired in part by ever growing feelings of anxiety amidst the emerging oppression of our society. Bruce and Tracy reflected on past generations who struggled similarly, and gravitated towards Kerouac and his cohorts, attracted by their influences on the progressive moments of the 1960s and 70s.
Bruce’s portrayals of America’s "Beat" writers and some of their "Bebop Jazz" inspirations are a pertinent reminder for all of us to never take our First Amendment rights for granted, and to pay homage to those men and women who raged against their oppressors while fighting to express themselves. These large scale impressionistic portraits are painted in a limited palette with bold strokes, reminiscent of the Pop Art colors of the mid 20th century. The depictions are nuanced, and expose the subjects’ human imperfection and frailty, while striving to capture the struggles that these writers and musicians endured throughout their lives. The square format was definitively chosen as dramatic irony, for the Beat Generation defines “cool,” and these artists were simply not capable of being “square!” Many of these artists were afflicted by substance abuse and addiction, similar to the epidemic which continues to permeate our present society. Undoubtedly, these writers, artists, and musicians are defined by their genius, and not by their illnesses - similarly, we must not let this present scourge define our friends and neighbors, but rather, encourage creatives to find their voices as well.
Tracy’s large scale collage assemblages also evoke Pop Art characteristics, while correlating with Bruce’s portraits, as the repetitive circles contrast symbolically with the squares. Constructed primarily of donated recycled materials, each is like a miniature abstract painting itself, made of pure pigment, selected to either interact with its surroundings, or assembled as protests. These pieces are made to elicit responses and to force the viewers to look a little deeper at the world around them, to smile a little, and if necessary- to Howl.
The Joneses reside in Exeter, NH where they have enjoyed a life filled with family, friends, and art.
