Quinn Sullivan, 14-Year-Old Guitar Prodigy, 
Buddy Guy Protégé, Sets First Album Release

Getting There, His Debut Pop, Blues and Rock CD 
planned for June Release from SuperStar Records


Six years ago, legendary multi-Grammy™ winning blues guitarist Buddy Guy had
a remarkable encounter when an eight-year-old boy named Quinn Sullivan
joined him on stage demonstrating amazing musical prowess. Guy, so taken
with 
the youngster’s preternaturally mature guitar-slinging
skills, became a mentor to the New Bedford, MA native. That circumstance
led to Quinn’s playing a blistering solo that belied his tender age on
“Whose Gonna Fill Those Shoes,”—a track on Skin Deep,
Guy’s 2008 Grammy-nominated album that also included guest performances
from Eric Clapton, Robert Randolph, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi.
 Quinn would go on to tour with Guy, who would proudly introduce him to
an international audience.

Now
the just-turned-fourteen-year-old has fulfilled his mentor’s vision
with an all-new album to be released by SuperStar Records on June 18th. Getting There was
produced and co-written with Grammy award winner Tom Hambridge, who
first encountered Quinn during Buddy Guy’s Skin Deep sessions (an album
Hambridge also produced.) The Getting There album showcases
Quinn’s wide range and includes blues, pop and rock tracks that will
appeal to music fans of any age that favor authentic guitar-driven
grooves and melodies.   Quinn, as it happens, is as adept at vocals as
he is at making his beloved Stratocaster sing.

Since his “discovery” by Buddy Guy, Quinn Sullivan
has appeared on national televisions shows including Jimmy Kimmel
Live!, Ellen, Oprah and The Today Show and was featured in Guitar Player
and Guitar World magazines. He has shared stages not only with Buddy
but also with such greats as B.B. King, Jonny Lang and many others at
iconic venues including the Hollywood Bowl and both New York’s Apollo
and Beacon Theaters. Quinn received a major honor being the
youngest artist to play the world renowned Montreux Jazz Festival in
Switzerland and will be performing at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar
Festival at Madison Square Garden in April, along with an all-star
lineup and in Columbus, Ohio at the Blues for a Cure charity event on
April 27th. .

Legendary
jazz guitarist John McLaughlin said: “He’s unbelievable … and he plays
just like Jimi (Hendrix)!” John Heithaus, managing partner of SuperStar
Records, noted of his label’s latest signing, “Triple threat artists
like Quinn are truly rare. He is a prime example of today’s brilliant
new breed of songwriters, musicians and performers and we have high
aspirations for him!” 

Buddy
Guy remains one of Quinn’s biggest boosters, having said on the record
in no uncertain terms, “You don’t come across talent like this every
day. People called Ray Charles a genius? I think you’ve got another one
here.”

Quinn
Sullivan is excited that he has Getting There, his own album on the
way, and said, “I‘m excited join forces with SuperStar Records and to
work with Tom Hambridge whose production, tours and songs with Buddy, BB
King, Delbert McClinton, Susan Tedeschi, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry,
Shemekia Copeland and so many others I totally respect.  I’m living my
dream every day, learning from the masters and looking forward to
playing for everybody in person and on the album. “
