Q The Music

GroupAccount image
"Q: The Music" is a weekly program that features a carefully curated mix of established and up-and-coming artists, consisting of our favorite and most memorable performances, from within North America and far beyond. A typical episode will include two acts: one top-tier performer; one rising star or an act that might fall just on the outside of the mainstream.

Over the years, an impressive array of gifted performers have made their way through Studio Q. Collectively, they've created a music collection so good that we just can't keep it to ourselves. The shows aims to showcase living legends, buzz bands, and undiscovered artists outside the mainstream.
