Joining illustrious names like Delbert McClinton, Joe Bonamassa, and the Tedeschi Trucks band, fourteen year old Quinn Sullivan has landed on the Billboard Blues Chart for his second album Getting There. Produced by Grammy-winner Tom Hambridge, the thirteen track album has caught the attention of the New York Times Music Section, Rolling Stone, Music Radar and many other news outlets. Since it’s release at the end of June the album has been steadily gaining a following to land at spot number 14 as the only new addition to this week’s chart. Even before the album’s release Quinn began touring the country as an opening act for his mentor Buddy Guy, including an appearance at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Gardens. “Players like him come along once in a lifetime,” says Buddy Guy who invited Quinn to perform on his previous album, Skin Deep, on the aptly titled track Who’s Going To Fill Those Shoes.
“I’m so honored to have made it to the Billboard charts,” said Quinn upon hearing the news. “A lot of dreams have come true for me this summer. I want to thank my fans for making this such an awesome year so far. From meeting so many of my idols at Madison Square Garden to sitting in with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and now the Billboard Chart. It’s just amazing.”
John Heithaus, managing partner of record label SuperStar Records, said “Triple threat artists like Quinn are truly rare. He is a prime example of today’s new breed of songwriters, musicians and performers and we have high aspirations for him.”
