As his recent single ‘All Around The World‘ surpasses more than 4 million streams, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist Quinn Sullivan has just released a new live take on the song, filmed at Building Records this summer.
Sullivan has announced a 19-date US tour with Beth Hart and is continuing to tour the US in support of his new album ‘Wide Awake’ this fall. For a full list of tour dates and to purchase tickets, click here.
Now 22-years-old, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist has already toured the world, collaborated with rock’s biggest legends, and developed jaw-dropping skills as a guitar player. But now, 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.
“’In a World without You’ is one of my favorite songs off of the new album,” Sullivan told Flaunt magazine, who premiered the song this week. “We shot it at Building Records, a recording studio in Marlboro, New York. I had an absolute blast making it. I had the opportunity to bring in some friends of mine to do this with me, which I think really added to the concept. Playing drums is Lee Falco, playing keyboards is Will Bryant, and playing bass is Brandon Morrison.”
The new album was recorded in Los Angeles with producer/collaborator Oliver Leiber – who has worked with artists such as Ke$ha, Adam Lambert, Paula Abdul, The Corrs and more. “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.”
A rare artist who’s always sounded older than his years, Sullivan 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 Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, and three Montreux Jazz Festivals. Quinn has shared the stage with his hero and mentor Buddy Guy, as well as Carlos Santana on several occasions. Quinn’s performance experience includes appearances on leading national television programs Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and CBS This Morning, to name a few.
As he moves into this new chapter, Sullivan’s constant credo has been growth and learning. “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 as an artist.”
