Quinn Sullivan


4-26-2018

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.

Yes, Sullivan has packed some extraordinary experience into his decade-long career, and that’s even more remarkable when you consider that he’s only 18. His third studio album, "Midnight Highway," was produced by multi GRAMMY® winner Tom Hambridge , and was released worldwide in early 2017 on Mascot Label Group’s PROVOGUE label. 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 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’s age and enduring relationship with Buddy Guy is certainly notable, but so too is his total dedication to his craft. “I wanted to see how far we could get musically on this album. I had a lot more creative input on this one and was more active in writing,  I didn’t want to completely break away from the blues, that’ll always be my home ground, but I just wanted to stretch out. 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 labled this or that. I want to make music that moves people. That is the definition of success for me. “

He’s well on his way with Midnight Highway, for which he had a hand in writing three of the stand-out tracks, “Eyes For You”, “Lifting Off” and “Going.”  One of the other songs that Quinn tackled is George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”  Quinn has always been extremely passionate about The Beatles, so every effort was made to replicate the Harrison classic as faithfully as possible.  Producer Tom Hambridge remarked, “We really tried to make it sound like it was off the White Album, so we researched everything about the track, where the mic placement should be, how to get the organ to sound like the original. Quinn is such a huge Beatles fan so, of course, he really loved the process.”

Quinn is now working on his fourth release while continuing to tour throughout 2018 in support of Midnight Highway.

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.”
