"Quinn Sullivan may also be the most gifted guitar prodigy on the planet, a blues player of jaw dropping virtuosity and depth who could turn out to be the Clapton of his generation" - The Washington Post
A rare artist who’s always sounded older than his years, Sullivan has been touring the world since he was an 11-year-old, playing storied venues such as Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl and RFK Stadium in Washington D.C., as well as India’s Mahindra Blues Festival, Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, and three Montreux Jazz Festivals. Quinn has shared the stage with his hero and mentor Buddy Guy, as well as Carlos Santana on several occasions. Quinn’s performance experience includes appearances on leading national television programs such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and The Oprah Winfrey Show, to name a few.
Hailed as a guitar prodigy in his teens and touring worldwide with Buddy Guy for 10 years, Quinn Sullivan, now 24, has emerged as one of today’s most gifted and promising artists. His musical roots are steeped in the Blues/Rock world. His early story and relationship with Mr. Guy and several other luminaries, is chronicled in the 2021 film, The Torch. However, his talent and tenacity have expanded his horizons beyond just the “kid who can play guitar.”
Quinn Sullivan's fourth album, Wide Awake, offers a veritable tasting menu of electric guitar tone but that's not what he wants you to notice. At least not at first. Songwriting is a little like being a chef. You want people to enjoy the meal. They can ask about the ingredients afterwards.“You pick up a ’59 Les Paul and it just speaks differently to any other guitar you have ever played before – it is a beast of its own.“
“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. This what I was born to do.”
