(PRNewswire) – Capitol CMG recently announced the signing of emerging new artist Kevin Quinn. 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,” said 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.
“Wildfire” is available August 13 everywhere you get your music.
