Quinn Sullivan Releases “All Around The World (Live)”

Article Contributed by jbleicher.com | Published on Saturday, October 16, 2021

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. “Matured and owning his words,” wrote American Songwriter in an exclusive premiere of the single, “Sullivan returns more as a singer-songwriter than just a prodigy guitarist with “All Around the World.” Sullivan is continuing to tour the US in support of his new album ‘Wide Awake’ this fall/winter, including a run of dates with acclaimed singer-songwriter Beth Hart in February and March 2022.

Just 22-years-old, Sullivan has already toured the world, collaborated with rock’s biggest legends, and developed genuinely 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. Written prior to 2020, Sullivan says “All Around the World” took on a whole new meaning within the past year’s pandemic and protests. “It still has the same meaning as the day we wrote it, but it’s taking on more of a broader meaning,” shares Sullivan. “It’s almost like an anthem of what 2020 was, and what 2021 will probably be.”

Recorded in Los Angeles with producer/collaborator Oliver Leiber, ‘Wide Awake’ adds potent new arrows to a quiver already brimming with sure-shots, and it showcases the kind of forward motion that separates the artists from the mere players. "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 India's Mahindra Blues Festival, 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.”
