My name is Fabian Manzano, I am the owner and founder of These Quiet Sounds (TQS), a Sarasota, FL based design studio, clothing line & boutique. When I’m not on tour with my band Boyce Avenue, I’m usually back in Sarasota running our flagship store. I started TQS back in 2011. I was looking for a different creative outlet because I wanted to grow as an artist. Music had always been my biggest passion, but I needed something new that would allow me to create more and work with my hands. One night I was designing a cd cover for Boyce Avenue and the name These Quiet Sounds just sort of came to me. I was thinking about all of the beautiful things that inspire me; underground music, street art, fashion, passion, and that’s when the name just popped into my head. I’ve always been somewhat of an introvert, so the “quiet” name stuck, and just like that a brand was born.
