Up and coming singer/songwriter Quinn XCII is coming to Portland to perform some songs acoustically and meet Z100 listeners on Monday, March 19th!
Detroit singer/songwriter Quinn XCII closed out 2016 as a breakout year for the newcomer. With his ability to seamlessly blur the lines between electronic pop, hip-hop, and soul music, he has quickly paved his own lane with his unique sound. An early mixtape release turned heads, but it was his debut EP Change of Scenery, released in 2015, that put Quinn XCII on the map, connecting with the blogosphere and snaring millions of online streams. His next single "Stung" went to #1 on Hype Machine, and a follow-up EP release, Bloom, cemented his ability to meld styles and write about more varied subject matter. Next it wash is featured vocals on “Kings of Summer”, a collaboration with longtime friend and producer ayokay (with whom he also exclusively worked with on his first two EPs), that started to bring him to the mainstream. The song became the sleeper summer hit of 2016, reaching #1 on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts, #1 on Hype Machine, accumulating over 60 million plays on Spotify, and getting regular spins at radio around the country. Quinn XCII’s breakthrough 2016 and 2017 tours have garnered the singer/songwriter raves for his versatile performing style. His energy and personality translate naturally during his performance, making even the festival-sized crowds feel like intimate shows.
