Come celebrate the new round of QC Beats artists with a free performance featuring The Common Faces, Riding Atlas, and Subatlantic!
Built in partnership with the Davenport Public Library, River Music Experience, and St. Ambrose University, QC Beats is an online streaming audio collection, including the original music of Quad Cities musicians and artists. A few benefits of building a collection of featured local artists is to continue expanding the reach of our vibrant creative community by elevating musicians and connecting them with the larger community and local venues. Community members with a Davenport Public Library card will be able to download audio files, and everyone else will be able to stream music at no cost.
Our partners established QC Beats not only to share local music but also to support local musicians. That's why you'll eventually find more than just music on QCBeats.org. Artist and album pages feature biographies and information about upcoming shows, links to the musicians' websites, social media, and online stores. We hope that QC Beats creates new fans and inspires listeners to support the artists who make the music.
The Common Faces

Through the ups and downs of life, music is the constant.Since 2016 The Common Faces have been making music together. Soon they will be releasing their first E.P “The Ups and Downs”.
Subatlantic formed in 2008 in Rock Island, Illinois. With four musicians capable on several instruments from guitar and bass to cello, keyboards and accordion, Subatlantic displays different textures in their songs, creating a sound that ranges from dark and sonorous to crisp, danceable post-punk. They currently have two releases out.

In 2018 we released our debut album “Mountains” that was recorded in Nashville at the legendary Sound Emporium. The title song off the album “Back to the Mountain” was also recorded on the 97X-WXLP 40th anniversary album highlighting Quad Cities IA/IL bands.
