Yeah, we finally have an artist to share space in the Q section on ABC Music Lounge next to the glorious Queen Latifah!

Aidan Hawken, Eric Schermerhorn and Pete Min are musician/composers and producers who make up The Quiet Kind and our ABC Music Lounge Artist of the Week. They are based in Los Angeles, though Eric and Pete originally hail from New York City and Aidan is from San Francisco. You'll probably recognize Aiden's voice from the many TV shows and movies his music has been featured in. Click their image above to find out what ABC shows you have heard them on.

You can preview or buy their first self titled EP released on May 11, 2011 on iTunes. I especially love the track "Arms & Enemies" in which Aiden's voice is beautifully layered with a female vocalist.
