SSR Artist Quinn Sullivan came to town to work with producer Tom Hambridge and his A-list team of studio musicians here in Nashville. As John Lennon would have said: ‘a splendid time was had by all!’ and the band rocked the foundations of the Tracking Room! More soon on this exciting work in PROGRESS!

  Last April was a who’s who of guitar greats at New York’s Madison Square Garden and tomorrow those of you who weren’t able to be there in person can catch hours of highlights on the DVD. With Eric Clapton hosting dozens of music legends—such as Jeff Beck, Allman Brothers, BB King, and Keith Richards, just to name a few—there is more than enough to satisfy every type of guitar fan imaginable. SuperStar Records is proud to have two of our artists included in the line-up. Guitar prodigy himself, Quinn Sullivan earned two standing ovations during a set with his mentor Buddy Guy and Les Falconer, drummer for Jack Mack and the Heart Attack, played as part of The Robert Cray Band during several songs (the same band he has been touring the US and Europe with for most of this year). The DVD, Blu-Ray, and CD of the event […]

 Grammy-winning producer, songwriter, and percussionist Tom Hambridge recently gave an in-depth interview on the radio station QFM96 with DJ Joe Show where he spoke about why he started a record label, where the biggest ‘headaches’ are for him when it comes to working on an album, what it is like to work with Buddy Guy, and some backstory to how he found a few of the artists signed to SuperStar Records.

A few weeks after the debut of Quinn Sullivan’s album Getting There it landed on the Billboard Blues Chart as a hotshot debut at #14 (appropriately enough since that is how old he is). It quickly skyrocketed to number four and spent the next several weeks bouncing around the list alongside the likes of Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr, and Tedeschi Trucks Band. Now, proving once again that Quinn has the staying power of any of the great guitar legends, the album has re-entered the chart at Number 10. With a summer that included television appearances on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, plus a highly successful cross-country tour as the opening act for Buddy Guy, Quinn has added yet another accomplishment to 2013—a year that will still see him taking to the stage another dozen times before gearing up for a busy 2014.

  Earlier this year Eric Clapton held his every-three-years Crossroads Guitar Fest in Madison Square Garden with nearly all the big names from the current era of guitar masters in attendance—from B.B.King to the Allman Brothers to Keith Richards, and many more it was a two-night testament to riffs, licks, power chords, and distortion pedals.  SuperStar Records is proud to have two artists who took part in the event—Quinn Sullivan who earned two standing ovations during his set and Les Falconer from Jack Mack Band who played drums as part of The Robert Cray band. Both of their expertise will be on display in the DVD from the event that is coming out November 19th in the US.

Sure there’s been mentions of Quinn Sullivan’s album Getting There in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and The Boston Herald, to name just a few, but fans have also taken to the Internet to share their responses to the album. We’ve pulled some of the fan comments from his Amazon page to share the buzz. “One of my favorite blues man took Quinn under his wing and I respect him even more for that. Quinn can play and will only get better. I love help supporting this young man. Buy it, he will be around for a long long time. You rock Quinn :-)” “So… can a 14 year old white boy from Massachusetts play the blues? That question almost sounds ludicrous, until you hear Quinn Sullivan. Like Roy Buchanan, he simply has been…born to play. You know the old story about Robert Johnson goin’ down to the crossroads? Well, Quinn went […]

As the 14 year old full-time student and professional musician Quinn Sullivan can easily attest: it’s a long way from his hometown of New Bedford, MA to Canada to New York and Hollywood then back again. The career of this guitarist, singer and songwriter has become red hot in 2013 starting with: signing a deal with the Grammy-winning team at SuperStar Records;  earning two standing ovations at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival at Madison Square Garden; releasing a brand new album, Getting There, produced by industry guru Tom Hambridge; articles in Rolling Stone, the Boston Herald and Boston Globe, and The New York Times; national television performances with the Roots (on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon) and a featured performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, to name but a few. Oh, we forgot to mention, his SuperStar Records debut peaked at #4 on the Billboard Blues charts! When Quinn signed with […]

Perhaps it is fitting that 14 year old Quinn Sullivan should end the summer wowing audiences on the West Coast. After all, his 2013 tour for sophomore album Getting There had an early start with a gig at New York’s Madison Square Garden for Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. Then the tour kicked into full gear and hit major high notes like an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, press mentions in the New York Times and Rolling Stone (to name but a few), plus a few dozen performances as opening act for Blues legend Buddy Guy at shows all over the country. And just last night, before the school bells ring once more, Quinn delivered one of his best performances yet as the musical guest on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. With producer and co-writer Tom Hambridge on drums and the rest of the band Quinn showed […]

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 […]
