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.
The album was recorded primarily at Nashville’s prestigious Blackbird Studio with some of the greatest players in Nashville, including many of the same musicians who played on the Buddy Guy albums that Hambridge produced. These include bassists Michael Rhodes and Tommy Macdonald, guitarist Rob McNelley, and keyboard player Reese Wynans, a veteran of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble.
