Quinn Sullivan, fourteen-year-old blues prodigy and protégé of multi-Grammy winner Buddy Guy, releases his highly-anticipated album GETTING THERE. The album features thirteen blues, pop, and rock tracks - one of them written by Eric Clapton for Sullivan - showcasing the budding talent that has attracted attention from musical legends and national audiences alike. GETTING THERE is out June 18 via Altavoz Distribution and SuperStar Records. A must have for Blues and guitar lovers.
Sullivan’s music career began at age six when he appeared on the daytime talk show Ellen with Ellen Degeneres. Two years late, Sullivan met the mentor of a lifetime when introduced to Buddy Guy backstage at a concert in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The blues legend held a quick audition for Sullivan and was so impressed with the youngster’s skills that he invited the prodigy to play on-stage with him that night. Since then, Guy has taken Sullivan under his wing, saying “players like [Sullivan] come along once in a lifetime.” With Guy’s help, Sullivan landed a coveted spot on stage with Eric Clapton for his 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden. Sullivan has also graced other iconic stages such as the Hollywood Bowl and Apollo Theater, as well as playing before national television audiences on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Today Show, and Oprah. He is also the youngest person to have played Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
