Quinton Barnes is a singer/songwriter and producer born in Waterloo, Ontario. Though firmly rooted in pop/R&B, his music draws from influences as diverse as Prince, Michael Jackson, David Bowie and Stevie Wonder. An electrifying performer, Barnes’ tour de force lies in his stage show, where he dances and powers through an exhilarating set of all-original tunes, rarely stopping to take a break or catch his breath. His latest single, titled “Alright”, is a fast-paced funk workout written, produced and performed by the musician himself. In 2015 he was a recipient of the Waterloo Region Leading Edge Arts Award, which recognizes upcoming young musicians in the area. His latest EP, entitled “7th Speaks Obsessed”,
is slated to be released in early June.
