Today, 17-year-old producer and songwriter quinn releases her self-titled album via deadAir. The self-produced, self-written project is across 17-tracks and is a deeply personal statement; a vehicle to set the record straight as to who “quinn” really is in the form of an album. quinn is a cathartic moment — you can hear it in the record’s submerging and candid mix of soul, hip-hop, and electronica. It’s an exercise in narrative building and self-expression with no boundaries or parameters.
On August 6th, quinn will be performing her debut live show at Elsewhere (Zone 1) in New York City with special guest saturn. Purchase tickets HERE.
quinn is a wayfaring soul who grew up bouncing from one place to the next; frequently relocating to different towns, states, and military bases with her parents. These constant location shifts are reflective in the way she tears through perceived genres at a rapid frequency. Deeply imbued in the multimedia online underground, quinn first connected with peers who were also finding their way as artists within the digital music community when she was just 15. Throughout 2019 and 2020 quinn became one of the most visible and prolific purveyors of what came to be known as “hyperpop” and perhaps embodied its progressive and divergent nuance more than anyone else. After releasing music under several different monikers over the last few years, all the while cloaking her true identity, she retreated from her very online presence for most of 2021, re-emerging in September with her debut album as quinn, Drive-By-Lullabies.
quinn is also a founding member and creative director of deadAir — the label and management company that released quinn. Co-founded by Billie Bugara and Jesse Taconelli in November 2021, dA serves as an independent setting for music’s youthful future to thrive in outside of the major record industry. Its roster includes quinn, Jane Remover (fka ‘dltzk’), Kuru, and saturn.
The quinn album arrives accompanied by a merchandise collection. All designs are done in-house by deadAir’s’ creative team. The collection features illustrations/designs from dA’s fashion director Mya Urso, as well as additional designs from dA’s graphic lead Yams. Check out the merch here.
