Quinn XCII, Detroit's sensational indie pop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Brighton Music Hall!
Quinn XCII was born in Detroit in 1992 and is a singer and songwriter. He was introduced to soul music at an early age his parents and he started making music when he was a student at Michigan State University. He cites Kid Cudi, Kanye West, and Mos Def as some of his biggest influences. While his musical style can be broadly classified as indie pop (a subgenre of alternative/indie rock originating in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and differing from indie rock to the extent that it’s more melodic, less abrasive, and relatively angst free), it also includes elements of pop, hip hop, reggae (while sometimes used in a broad sense to refer to most types of popular Jamaican dance music, the term reggae more properly denotes a particular music style that was strongly influenced by traditional mento as well as American jazz and rhythm and blues, and evolved out of the earlier genres ska and rocksteady), and dance pop (a fusion of electronic dance music and pop music, with influences of disco music, post-disco, new wave, synthpop, electropop, and house). He's had a stellar career with 3 extended plays and his latest album (A Story of Us) comes out in September 2017.
