QUAERY is a new project from longtime music collaborators Erik Schee and Scott Christopher. Erik and Scott draw from their background in folk and pop songwriting while exploring new sounds influenced by contemporary R&B and indie trends.
Erik and Scott began their collaboration in the Minneapolis-based indie folk group, The Paper Days. In their former band, they made regular appearances at venues such as The Icehouse, 7th St Entry, and Aster Cafe. The band’s debut album Falling Is Easy received radio play on The Current, Go 96.3, and KFAI.
Years later, Erik & Scott continue to develop their collaboration in QUAERY. The duo released their first EP, "Until the Sun Stopped Glowing in January 2022 and are scheduled to release their 2nd EP, "Dark Magic is Real" on September 29th.
