Interview: Quinn Sullivan Talks Buddy Guy, Patriots, 'Midnight Highway' & MORE

posted by Jonathan 'JC' Clarke - 

Seventeen-year-old blues-rock guitar phenom Quinn Sullivan has been performing for massive audiences since he was six years old. 

Quinn has been appearing on TV shows like Ellen since he was in first grade and is a protégé of sorts to blues great Buddy Guy, with whom he's performed several times. 

He's also shared a stage with legends like Eric Clapton, Derek Trucks, Joe Bonamassa, The Roots and many others. Quinn lights up when talking about his resumé, not because he likes to brag, but because he loves the music so much. 

Musical skill aside, Quinn is not your average high school senior. 

Even though Quinn has been doing this for three quarters of his life already, he really seems to understand how fortunate he is. And he's trying to enjoy every new experience.

He's articulate and forthcoming in his "Out of the Box" interview with Jonathan Clarke, discussing his early start on the guitar, his relationships in the music business, his new album, Midnight Highway, and how he's managing to do all of this while still in high school. 

Watch the interview below and see Quinn play a solo version of his new song, "Lifting Off." 

Keep up with him on the road here.

Here's Quinn playing the title track to his new album, Midnight Highway.
