Biography

Quinn Keon's own brand of "Attitude Rock" is a full-on guitar assault. Quinn says the origin of his music comes from life itself. He draws on his own experiences from the most basic to more complex feelings. Some of Quinn's favorite "high-energy influences" range from short skirts and high heels to 4-wheel drive mud trucks and high-powered rifles.

Quinn Keon says he represents the working class. "You have to work a little harder if you want to play. Nothing has come easy for me. It’s a lot of hard work and determination every day and the perseverance to overcome many obstacles."

With his unique style combining melody and brute force edge, Quinn is able to deliver a dynamic musical performance. With several vocal and instrumental compositions in his arsenal, Quinn shows that he is fully capable of switching gears with his guitar style, but when he downshifts into "Attitude Rock" you’d better hold on 'cause it’s one hell of a ride.
