Born and raised in Delaware and growing up in a musical family, Quinn Hedges was introduced to music and was singing at an early age. Quinn played piano, trumpet, and bass before becoming hooked on guitar and writing songs around the age of 15. After moving to California and earning his degree in music, Quinn became more serious about his songwriting. In 2006, he blended his interpretations of Jazz, Folk, Blues, and Rock into his all-original self-titled debut album, “Quinn Hedges”. In 2011, he released his sophomore effort in the acoustic-based album, “Without You”.
After playing in several bands, rigorous gigging as a solo musician, and having written so much original music, it became apparent that it was time for him to start his own group. Thus, he formed and led “The Quinn Hedges Band” from 2009 through 2014. In 2012, Quinn was voted “Best of the City” in Sactown Magazine and The Quinn Hedges Band released the album, “Step Outside”. In 2013, Quinn’s song “Without You” was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. From 2013 through 2016, Quinn teamed up with his cousin, John B Hedges, and released his finest album to date, “Slightly South of Stormy Clouds” (Mixed by Grammy Award Winner Tim Sonnefeld & Mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig).
Since 2003, Quinn has been playing restaurants, dive bars, wine bars, wineries, clubs, theaters, weddings, private events, has opened for national touring acts, such as Nicholas David (from NBC’s, “The Voice”), Matt Schofield, Duncan Sheik, Zach Deputy, Shana Morrison, and Michael Chapdelaine, and has performed the National Anthem at a Sacramento Kings vs. Los Angeles Lakers game. Quinn currently performs in the dynamic Sacramento-based rock band, “The Outcome”. Quinn, who considers himself a blues player at heart, writes songs of such sincerity that they easily lend themselves to the common population.
