LOS ANGELES (August 3rd, 2021) – Today, Capitol CMG announced the signing of emerging new artist Kevin Quinn. A coveted win for the undisputed leading label in its genre, the 23-year-old Los Angeles and Nashville-based singer/ songwriter is set to release the single and music video for “Wildfire,” the first with Capitol CMG, on August 13. With a palpable smoothness and synth-forward beat, the hummable track is a purposeful introduction to Quinn as a recording artist. With a desire to deliver straight ahead pop infused with inspirational themes, Quinn’s addition into the fold is a welcome one, as he promises to hold his own amongst the industry’s elite, if this first release is any indication.

“I think ‘Wildfire’ is a metaphor for the light inside us all,” says Quinn. “Even when that light gets bleak, there’s an element of trust that shapes our outlook, as well as peace that everything happens for a reason. And somehow, knowing that is enough to keep going.”

“We are so excited to be partnering with such a multi-talented artist like Kevin,” say Capitol CMG co-presidents Brad O’Donnell and Hudson Plachy. “From acting to songwriting, his success is driven by a raw natural talent and incredible work ethic. We are honored to team up with him to help carry his music to his fans and beyond.”

The release arrives on the heels of his starring role as troubled teen redeemed in Netflix’s new faith-based musical film, “A Week Away,” whose soundtrack (distributed by Capitol CMG) features Quinn on 11 of 13 tracks and has seen over 51 million global streams to date. With the awaited release of “Wildfire,” the Chicago native gets ready to spotlight the vocal capacity that made him the obvious network choice for the theme song of Disney’s “Bunk’d,” which he also starred in for two seasons. The multi-hyphenate joins Capitol’s diverse roster of artists including: Beck, Jon Bellion, Lewis Capaldi, Riley Clemons, Halsey, Niall Horan, Kari Jobe, Paul McCartney, Hillsong Music, Katy Perry, Sam Smith and more. Quinn is managed by veteran artist manager Gabriel Vasquez (Vasquez Entertainment), with theatrical representation by the Kohner Agency and Velocity Entertainment Partners.

“Wildfire” is available August 13 everywhere you get your music.

About Kevin Quinn:

At 23 years old, Chicago-born rising star, Kevin Quinn, is a recording artist, singer/songwriter, instrumentalist and actor, uniquely merging the genres of pop and inspirational. Known for his varied range of television, film and stage work, Capitol CMG’s breakout artist now spotlights his vocal talents with the upcoming release of “Wildfire,” his first single with the label. With an upbringing that includes more musical theatre than any other activity, Quinn’s natural penchant for performing ushered him straight into Hollywood. He starred on primetime hits including “Shameless” and “Chicago P.D.,” and Disney’s top sitcom, “Bunk’d,” whose theme song he also recorded for the multi-season run of his series regular role as “Xander.” As his love of music continued to show up in his work, he released an independent solo EP titled, “Edge of the World” in 2020. In 2021, he signed with Capitol CMG, and quickly joined the North American leg of the popular Winter Jam tour. Most recently, he starred as troubled teen-redeemed in Netflix’s feel-good musical, “A Week Away,” leading the vocals on 11 of 13 tracks on the soundtrack, seeing 51 million+ global streams and counting. Adored for his earnest songwriting and natural showmanship, this year, the heartthrob multi-hyphenate aims to make good on widespread industry predictions citing Quinn as pop acoustic’s next big name. Quinn currently splits his time between Los Angeles and Nashville.
