Neville's Quarter is a toss up between either attending a goosebumps inducing inspirational folk concert or finally finding that chill campfire circle of friends that you've been searching for all your life. Whichever way the the show lands for you, you will leave feeling a richer state of mind. Neville's Quarter's collection of songs is playful enough for kids to dance to but also delivers more weighty topics for adults to ponder over, well after all the microphones are unplugged. Together, the two are a highly skilled musical force; they incorporate at least half a dozen instruments in each ... show and have hundreds of well crafted songs to share. Their main objective as musicians is to break open the shells that trap people inside, and they do so through the lyrics and melodies they share with each performance.

Both Brian and Lex have family roots in New Jersey but they've bounced around living in the collection of Massachusetts, New York, and North Carolina. Their music was born out of the bountiful music culture of North Carolina; between church choir practices, Songwriter Co-op meetings, bluegrass jams, and Saturday morning folk Songcircles, they developed their own musical style that is now known as "Neville's Quarter." Lex studied voice, violin, and piano as a classical music student at Syracuse University's Setnor School of Music. The introduction to folk music and bluegrass in North Carolina w ... as a floodgate for her; she quickly was pulled into the tide of songwriting and music performance there. Brian Moyer, a natural at songwriting and instigating singalongs, was the spark that got Neville's Quarter going. Becoming a professional musician had been a decades long dream of Brian's, and once Lex heard his songwriting, she too wanted to make that happen. They teamed up together in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, late in 2016, and have been making music together wherever they go since.
Neville's Quarter has performed over 75 different gigs in 2017/2018 at local music festivals, cafe's , bars, and community parties/fundraisers.
