Quincy Bullen is an accomplished pianist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist (drums, bass, guitar, keys) and singer. Extraordinarily talented, with a great sense of timing, Quincy ‘wows’ audiences across Ontario and the Caribbean. His style is jazz with a funky vibe. His repertoire includes his own version of popular standards from jazz, R&B and soul as well as his original compositions. He has been a featured performer at many large music festivals and venues in Canada and the Caribbean. Quincy has been splitting his time between Toronto and LA. He also works as a producer and DJ.
Quincy's new CD is close to completion and is to be released in July 2015. It highlight Quincy’s love of jazz, electronic and house music along with his Caribbean roots and contemporary jazz sensibilities.
Working with his father, juno award winning Eddie Bullen, Quincy released his first solo album, On Q in late 2010. It is mostly original material featuring: Larnell Lewis on drums, Alex Toth on bass and Rob Christian on sax. The CD demonstrates Quincy’s funky jazz vibe and his sensitivity as a composer.
Quincy is also in the process of developing a new album with his Father, Eddie tentatively called, ‘Like Father, Like Son’, which will be their first full-length cd, featuring compositions they have created together. This cd will merge the generations and highlight Quincy’s love of jazz, electronic and house music with his father’s Caribbean and contemporary jazz sensibilities.
Quincy and his Dad are also continually refining their two-man show, 'Dueling Pianos – Father and Son' for the stage. Quincy is also touring and doing gigs with his musical partner, Rob Christian - they call each other ‘ brothers from another mother’. They receive praise for their camaraderie, multi-instrumental talents, singing and their ever-popular jams.
Quincy is a founding member of the Quintessential Boys (a successful teen-jazz band). Quincy’s band now includes a mixture of up and coming musicians and seasoned jazz professionals.
