Today, 21-year-old singer, songwriter, and guitarist Quinn Sullivan reveals the video for ‘All Around The World‘, to celebrate a new chapter of his already impressive career, which has seen him tour the world and collaborate with rock’s biggest legends.
Now, having developed jaw-dropping skills as a guitar player, Sullivan’s more recent work has been with pen and paper, as he lets the abundant skills of his youth blossom and steer him into new directions of artistry and creativity. “Matured and owning his words…Sullivan returns more as a singer-songwriter than just a prodigal guitarist,” said American Songwriter. “Sullivan has refocused his craft to songwriting”.
“I want to stay true to where I come from, and go from there,” says Sullivan. “The artists that inspire me to do that are always hungry for the new. They never repeat themselves. They just grow and become more unique — and that’s what I aim to do”.
Recorded in Los Angeles with producer/collaborator Oliver Leiber, ‘All Around The World‘ will be included on Sullivan’s next full-length album, slated for release later this year. The new music adds potent new arrows to a quiver already brimming with sure-shots, and it showcases the kind of forward motion that separates the artists from the mere players. “I want people to understand who I am as an artist“, explains Quinn. “I think my audience will appreciate the fact that the guitar is still a huge part of who I am, and I can truthfully say all the songs are coming from a very honest place”.
Sullivan has always sounded older than his years. He has been touring the world since he was 11-years-old, playing storied venues such as Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl and RFK Stadium in Washington D.C., as well as India’s Mahindra Blues Festival, Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, and three Montreux Jazz Festivals.
But as he moves into this new chapter, Sullivan’s constant credo has been growth and learning. “Obviously, as you get older you learn and experience more“, Sullivan says. “Throughout the years I’ve gotten to learn and be around so many amazing, accomplished musicians and people in the music industry, and that’s shaped me into who I am now”.
