Review By Darren McIntyre
Quinn Sullivan is a singer/songwriter/guitarist from New Bedford, Massachusetts who has been active since 2006. Quinn has been fortunate to share the stage with artists like Buddy Guy & BB King and played festivals like Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits & Crossroads Guitar Festival, he has appeared on TV shows like NBC’s The Today Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tonight Show With Jay Leno & Jimmy Fallon to name but a few. Quinn has given us 4 albums – Cyclone 2011, Getting There 2013, Midnight Highway 2017 & Wide Awake 2021, today he drops his awesome new single Salvation(Make Me Wanna Pray) which I will be reviewing for you today.
Salvation(Make Me Wanna Pray) – A slick deep blues riff pours from the intro as cool drum beats get the rhythm section up and running as we feel the groove oozing from the get-go. The bassline is handing us cool deep funk tones that really set this track on fire with its killer beat that is just on the money, the vocals are a real melodic gravelly vibe that fits the arrangement perfectly. The guitar work is just sublime as Quinn cuts loose and shreds killer licks that let this track open and soar with ease, the tempo changes pace as he slips in a colossal blues-infused solo that works so well with this foot-stomping deep groove that has us punching the air with joy as this killer track tells its own story as we flow effortlessly along with this exciting bluesman as he just kills it with this colossal piece of music.
