Youthful Boston-area guitar sensation Quinn Sullivan was born in 1999 and took up guitar around the time most kids start pre-school. His precocious musical talent landed him an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show at age six, and he attracted much attention shortly thereafter when blues veteran Buddy Guy invited him onstage to play during a 2007 performance in Massachusetts.
“Man, I called this kid out and I just couldn’t outrun him,” Guy later said. “I knew I had to make sure people know about him.”
Sullivan has performed with Guy often since then, and by age 12 had racked up appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Today and Jimmy Kimmel Live! and at the Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits music festivals. He has performed with B.B. King and has met guitar idols including Jeff Beck, Jonny Lang, Steve Miller, Jimmie Vaughan and Ronnie Wood.
Sullivan made a studio guest appearance on 2008 Buddy Guy album Skin Deep, and released his own single, “Summer of Love,” in 2009. Debut album Cyclone was released in 2011 and peaked at number seven on the Billboard blues chart. Sullivan continues to record, perform and tour extensively, with a very bright musical future before him.
