After his HotShot Debut at number 14, guitar prodigy Quinn Sullivan has more than doubled his chart position in just two weeks. Now sitting at the number four position on the Billboard Blues Chart, Sullivan proves once again he can hold his own against the masters of the genre. With his mentor Buddy Guy two spots above (after debuting at number one) and Gary Clark Jr just one place away at number 3, Sullivan is certainly Getting There, as the title of his SuperStar Records debut attests.
To cap off a summer of high profile television appearances, Sullivan and his band will play the closing set on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on August 26th. Consistent with Sullivan’s commitment to including his fans wherever possible he has asked them to tell him which song he should sing from his new album Getting There on his official website, quinnsullivanmusic.com, Facebook and Twitter.
“I have to thank all the fans who have come out to my shows, gone to the record stores, and stopped by my iTunes page for supporting my new album,” said Quinn Sullivan. “This has been the best summer and it is only going to get better with next week’s gig on Jay Leno. As a thank you to all the people who have supported me I want to play what they want to hear. I’m taking suggestions for what I should play on Leno over on Facebook and Twitter so let your voice be heard!”
John L. Heithaus, Managing Partner of SuperStar Records said: “when we released Getting There, we knew the market was ready for Quinn — what’s happened this summer has exceeded even our most ambitious plans and it’s all due to Quinn, his very supportive family, Buddy Guy’s ongoing mentorship and, of course, Quinn’s fans all over the globe.”
