“How Many Tears” by Quinn Sullivan

“How Many Tears” by Quinn Sullivan: a fabulous blues-rock/pop song that is utterly breathtaking, especially when listened to alongside the beautiful music video.

Rich, emotion-fuelled vocals deliver the lyrics in spectacular fashion as Quinn’s crystal-clear voice shines throughout whilst gorgeous blues lines add extra depth by telling another story through their own melodic lines. The tempo and instrumentation of the song beneath the vocals and guitar is reminiscent of classic blues-rock ballads, giving reassurance to those of us that still love the blues, reminding us that artists like Quinn – who at 22 years old is showing huge potential for the years ahead – are still carrying the torch for future generations, whilst adding to the legendary catalogue of music that falls within the blues-rock category.

Speaking about the song and video, Quinn says:
‘”How Many Tears” is a reflection of how I was feeling about love and relationships back in high school,” Quinn said. “I had thought about myself during those times and I’d see so many guys treating girls so horribly, so I never understood why those girls would always go after those types of guys. I had never written a song about this subject before, but it just felt honest and comes from a very real and genuine place, which is why it’s one of my favourite songs on the new album. Trevor Banks, who directed the video, suggested we have an interpretive dancer come in to dance to the song as I was performing it. We ended up finding Matilda Sakamoto, who was the absolute perfect dancer to fill that role. She brought so much life and emotion to not only the video but to the song.”
