Spirited singer cuts loose with music

Band's second EP just released

(Continued)

Another goal is for Quote Unquote to participate in a large-scale tour this summer.

Even with all of these musical aspirations and her university studies, she still has me time. “I really love to cook.I love cats so much that they are basically a pastime of mine and I recently started up a new hobby – perfume making.”

Ten years from now, when Roper thinks about her band experience, she predicts, “I will remember each day being a thrilling learning experience spent with best friends by my side. A band is like a family; we all bonded through the music.”

When asked if Quote Unquote would consider performing a show near Batesville, she answers, “Absolutely .... I would definitely enjoy a hometown show. I would love to give everyone in our town the chance to witness in person what we all work so hard on.”

“I just really want to let everyone know in Batesville that we appreciate the support more than I can explain. I have no idea where I will go, but I know where I came from, and it is very comforting to feel encouraging vibes from our small town. So thank you.”

Debbie Blank can be contacted at debbie.blank@batesvilleheraldtribune.com or 812-934-4343, Ext. 113.
