Quinn Sullivan: ............

.... .. .. .. .. .. .. ....

......QUINN SULLIVAN.. .. .. “Ordinary” is not a word one would associate with 10-year-old Quinn Sullivan. The guitarist, singer, songwriter and recording artist from the Boston area already has a resume people much older than him would envy. He has been amazing people with his guitar playing since the young age of three and when Quinn was six, he caught the attention of the Ellen Degeneres Show and was flown out to Los Angeles to be a guest. Since then, Quinn has made an appearance on the Oprah show and has shared the stage with blues legends Buddy Guy and B.B. King and has played at such illustrious venues as The Beacon Theater in New York City, the Orpheum Theater in Boston and Guy’s Chicago club Buddy Guy’s Legends (where Derek Trucks made his first appearance at the age of 13). .. Performing on the Legends stage isn’t all Trucks and Quinn have in common. Quinn -- like Trucks and along with Susan Tedeschi, Robert Randolph and Eric Clapton -- was asked to appear on Guy’s GRAMMY®-nominated CD Skin Deep, released in 2008. Quinn can be heard showing off his guitar skills in a solo on the track “Who’s Gonna Fill Those Shoes”. .. Quinn has recently been working in the studio recording new material with producer/songwriter Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Johnny Winter). Hambridge has talked about Quinn’s professionalism in the studio. “I completely forgot how young he was.” He continues, “We’ve recorded some amazing songs. I cannot wait for the world to be turned on to this kid… he’s going to be a big star.” .. The journey continues for Quinn this summer, when he goes on tour in cities around the country. .. When Quinn isn’t playing the guitar with music legends or hanging out with celebrities, he’s practicing his drumming skills, playing baseball with friends and watching scary movies. He’s also got dreams of “playing for people and meeting more of my heroes including Eric Clapton, David Gilmore, Carlos Santana… and maybe someday meet Paul McCartney.” .. So what does the young prodigy think of his extraordinary talents? .. “I definitely consider myself a regular kid,” says Quinn. “Who can also play guitar.” ..
