Album 365: Day 62 - Quinn Sullivan - Cyclone

Quinn Sullivan

Favorite tracks: My Sweet Guitar, Cyclone, Weekend Uniform
Sleeper tracks: Buddy's Blues, Summer of Love

A company I worked for distributed this album.  That doesn't make me like the album.

I never bought into the 'young man singing the blues' phenoms.  We get it, you play the guitar better than most people and you're only 12 or 13 or whatever.  I don't need to hear about how bad you think you have it or how in love you are with somebody.

Specifically, this kid's voice is pre-pubescent and while in tune, is hard to listen to at times.  The lyrics to some songs are cheesy and the ones that aren't were probably written by somebody older.  My favorite tracks are great tunes with great hooks.  If this kid would just play guitar, I would like this album more.
