Quinn picked up his first guitar at the age of 3 and quickly developed skills way beyond his years. His natural ability combined with exposure to many kinds of music and musicians alike, led Quinn into the national spotlight with an appearance on the ELLEN show where he blew the audience away with his rendition of “Twist and Shout!”
In 2007, he met his idol, Blues Legend Buddy Guy at a concert in his hometown. Buddy was so impressed with Quinn’s guitar skills that he invited him to play on his Grammy nominated CD Skin Deep where he met future producer and song-writing partner, Tom Hambridge. Quinn continued to hone his guitar and vocal skills over the next couple of years and would sit in with Buddy whenever possible. He continued to appear on local and national TV programs including OPRAH and the TODAY SHOW. Buddy decided to independently release Quinn’s first CD Cyclone in 2011 and bring Quinn out as opening act for his 2011/2012 tour. Quinn appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show in March, 2011, bringing the crowd to its feet with his single,”My Sweet Guitar”.
2013 looks bright indeed for young Quinn Sullivan. The talented guitarist will appear at Eric Clapton’s prestigious Crossroads Festival in April with the likes of Guy, Derek Trucks and Jimmie Vaughan. He is also proud to be continuing his collaboration with Buddy Guy and producer Tom Hambridge. Quinn is looking forward to the release of his new CD and will be touring independently as well as with Guy in the weeks and months to come.
