Quinn worked in state and local government for 21 years prior to retiring in 2014. “I put the music business on pause while I worked full-time, raised four children and attended college part time. I received a bachelor’s degree when I was 45.” Quinn coached little league baseball and attended all of his children’s activities, such as dance lessons, cheerleading, basketball, and Babe Ruth baseball. “In 2007, my son Alexander Quinn, who was living in Nashville, sent me an acoustic guitar for Christmas. I was back in business! I started playing some of my old songs and began writing new songs. In 2011, I went to Nashville and recorded a 3 song cd with Alexander on guitar and engineering. I sold quite a few at work. In 2013, I went to Nashville again and we recorded a five song cd, Mr. Quinn, which I sell at live performances. Since then we have recorded 3 singles, one of which, ‘I’m Lookin’ For A Girl With No Tattoos,’ is gaining popularity on radio stations.”Quinn is now appearing as a solo act in bars and clubs in the Albany, NY area and his repertoire includes 22 of his own songs.
