Years of drumming for bands such as the Whiskey Sournotes, the Regulars, and Speedway can make a great singer-songwriter of a man. Quinn follows in the footsteps of many other great drummers turned singer-songwriters: Dave Grohl, Don Henley, and more recently, Pete Yorn. Never mind the drumming, though. For those of you yet unacquainted with Quinn, you''ll soon discover that it''s all about the songs.
Quinn first recognized his life path as a musician when he was four years old. His grandmother took him to the Grand Ole Opry to see Johnny Cash- and from that moment on, music was his life. Quinn moved to Minneapolis in 1986 to start drumming with his first band, Thought Factory. He went on to drum for some of the area''s most popular bands, including the Whiskey Sournotes, Mandrake Scream, the Regulars, Speedway, the Cogs, and more; all the while he was learning guitar and studying the craft of songwriting. He traveled all over the United States and Ireland as a musician and earned a music degree from MusicTech in Minneapolis in 1992. It wasn''t until just before the turn of the century that he finally decided it was time to perform his own songs.
Now, after five years on the road as an acoustic musician, Quinn has recorded his first EP, the impressive and always honest sushi, sex , music; with production by Bernie Larsen (Spinout Records, Cry on Cue, Melissa Etheridge), and with musical appearances by Bernie Larsen and Eric Koskinen.
sushi, sex, music(named after Quinn''s three favorite things in the world, in no particular order) features seven songs that have been compared to Tom Petty, Van Morrison, and the Band... it is the honesty that rings true on each and every song, from his soulful singing, to his frank lyrics, to his timeless song structures.
Quinn''s live shows are equally honest- not to mention an all out good time. Whether he performs solo or with his band, he is always engaging and having a great time, giving his all for every single note of every single song. This is something every person in the audience can feel. He cares about his music, he has a great time, and so does the audience.
A national CD release is planned for late summer 2004, followed by a tour in support of sushi, sex, music. Check out https://www.tradebit.com for more information.
