Quinn Sullivan has been a music professional for more than 75 percent of his life. He’s shared the stage with many of his heroes including Buddy Guy, Carlos Santana, and Joe Bonamassa, as well as BB King, Billy Gibbons, and Los Lobos. He has performed on concert and festival dates throughout the United States, Canada , Europe, as well as Asia and South America – including at storied venues like The Hollywood Bowl, RFK Stadium and Madison Square Garden, traveled overseas performing at both the Montreux Jazz Festival and India’s Mahindra Blues Festival – He’s also appeared on national TV, with guest appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,Oprah, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan and twice on The Ellen DeGeneres show.
Raised on the riffs of George Harrison, Carlos Santana, andEric Clapton, Quinn has dedicated his life to developing his own musical mastery and creating a sound all his own. His skills on the fretboard are matched by few, but it is his authentic voice as a songwriter and ability to weave his talents through a variety of styles that sets him apart from his peers. “My goal as an artist is to be the best singer, songwriter and guitarist I can be. Music is not meant to be put in a box and labeled this or that. I want to make music that moves people. That is the definition of success for me.” Quinn is hard at work on the follow up to "Midnight Highway," his 2017 homage to his blues roots that firmly established his presence as a formidable solo artist. For his upcoming project, Quinn dives inwards to explore personal themes of love, sorrow, and loneliness accompanied by tinges of modern rock and americana. On this project, Quinn has been collaborating with esteemed songwriter/producer Oliver Leiber (Paula Abdul, Ke$ha). The album is yet another milestone in Quinn’s extraordinary journey, which began with him jamming with the kids music combo Toe Jam Puppet Band at age three, appearing on Ellen Degeneres when he was six, and being taken under the wing of blues legend Buddy Guy at age eight, whose protégé he remains to this day.
Quinn has grown up in the music business, and is fully aware of and dedicated to all that it takes to continue pursuing his passion. “I love everything from the songwriting process to recording and especially touring around the world with my incredible bandmates. I’m fortunate to be able to see the world and meet new people everyday. I can’t see myself doing anything else.”
John Heithaus of SuperStar Records, says “Triple threat artists like Quinn are truly rare. He is a prime example of today’s new breed of songwriters, musicians and performers and we have high aspirations for him!” Legendary jazz guitarist John McLaughlin said: “He’s unbelievable … and he plays just like Jimi (Hendrix)!”
Buddy Guy says: “You don’t come across talent like this every day. People called Ray Charles a genius? I think you’ve got another one here.”
