Quinn Sullivan: a video profile

Quinn Sullivan is a guitar prodigy.

Born in New Bedford, Mass. in 1999, Quinn Sullivan showed an interest in music (and specifically The Beatles) very early. It wasn't long after his first guitar lesson that he made his first TV appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

In 2007, when he was only 8 years old, Blues legend Buddy Guy invited him on stage (as Guy is often known to do), but when he did, Guy had no idea what he was about to witness.

Since that encounter, Sullivan has become Buddy Guy's Protégé, and has been touring with him whenever it didn't conflict too much with his class schedule.

Quinn Sullivan released his debut album: Cyclone, in February 2011. I met Quinn Sullivan in his native New Bedford home for an interview that March.

Since the interview, Sullivan has become an official Fender artist and continues touring with Buddy Guy. He's gone on to meet and play with even more guitar greats, that includes a billing on Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, which earned him a feature in Rolling Stones Magazine.

In June 2013, he released his second album: Getting There

With every passing year Quinn Sullivan's playing is only getting better, and it's exciting to think of how much farther he can go.
