Quenby Iandiorio was introduced to the Country/Americana scene during her time in LA from `97-`09. But after years of enjoying her friends from out front, she decided it was time to have a go at it from up on stage. Late in `07 she picked up the guitar in earnest which was followed very quickly by recording her first song and shortly after by compiling her first band. By `09, Q’s desire to take the band all the way made a move to Texas inevitable, so she and original drummer, Clint Short (Shurman, Stonehoney, Weldon Henson), pulled up stakes and relocated to Austin. Since then she has made three successful tours of the Northern and Northwestern U.S. resulting in her latest move to Livingston, MT from where she books and maintains a full-time performing and touring schedule.
Now Q & the WOW Band plays a wide variety of Vintage Country, Contemporary (not Pop), Outlaw and Classic popular covers as well as originals which include songs from Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Jerry Reed, Mary Gauthier, The Mavericks, Waylon Jennings, George Jones, Patsy Cline, Lucinda Williams and many more!
Q’s original music can be found in the films “Doonby” starring John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard) and Robert Davi (Goonies; Die Hard; License To Kill) and “Deep in the Heart’ starring John Gries (Napolean Dynamite; Real Genius; Natural Selection), Elaine Hendrix (The Parent Trap; Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion) and Val Kilmer (Top Secret; The Doors; Tombstone).
The band is also pleased to have played once and then an encore performance for the cast, crew, investors and fans of the SXSW’s “Best Narrative Feature” 7-time winner, “Natural Selection” starring John Gries, Rachael Harris (The Hangover; Diary Of A Wimpy Kid) and John Diehl (Stripes; Stargate).

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“If Sugarland and The Allman Brothers ever made love, their baby would sound like Quenby & the West of Wayland Band. Quenby sings as good as she looks, the guitars and strings keep you movin’, and they have this authentic, “feel-good sound” so many mainstream bands lack.
You’ll want to crank up “Train Whistle” in your car, and slow dance forever to “Long Time Comin”… and if you’re lucky enough to see them live, you’ll keep coming back, again and again. I love this band!” – J. Cyrus Smith, KNBC-TV, Los Angeles
“Every time I add one of Q’s songs to the station’s playlist, my email box overflows with requests for more.” – Vinny Smith, HonkyTonkJunkie.com
“Train Whistle” has all the elements of a long lasting tune that lovingly stays in your head, fresh and easy. Quenby’s voice is angelic and hypnotic, the lyrics simple but strangely powerful. A great hummable melody that has “HIT” written all over it. This is good stuff!” – Stephen Eich, Producer & Executive Director, Pasadena Playhouse
“She has a nice way with her phrasing and it comes across beautifully on Train Whistle. The song is stunningly good.” -James Sutherland, Americanaok Radio
“She sounds like the lesbian love child of Carly Simon and Patsy Cline”
-Scott Streetman, Film Professional
