Perpetual Motion’s music is a vibrant blend of world music,  jazz, blues, and new age. It’s elegant with a sense of adventure. 

“Remarkably, Perpetual Motion does exactly what their name says. From the moment the lights come up on them, they are engaged with their audience, sweeping them along on a quick trip around the world. It’s rare and beautiful to see a whole room of vastly different people moving together, leaving their everyday world behind, and being carried, up and away by Perpetual Motion’s lively melodies and expert musicianship.  Perpetual Motion creates an escape and brings their audiences with them on a rising wave of fun, beauty, and connection until the very last note.  – Hanna Ackerman, Concert director, Swallow Hill Music

“Spend a few minutes in person with PERPETUAL MOTION members Josie Quick and Tom Carleno and you will see their unique and undeniable chemistry as a couple, each playing off the other with the same quirky sense of humor, quick smile, and easy-going nature. That same chemistry is instantly apparent when they perform instrumentally live as well. Josie’s violin and Tom’s guitar pirouette around the other in a delightful dance of in-sync simpatico. Whether you see them in concert or hear one of their albums, you will hear more than enough virtuosity to instill admiration and respect for their talent.” -Saul Rosenthal, Founding member of Rocky Mountain Jewgrass and owner, The Denver Folklore Center
