Quinn Devlin & The Bridge Street Kings are a soul outfit out of Columbia University. Led by singer/songwriter Quinn Devlin, the role of acoustic guitar accompaniment is swapped in favor of a gunslinging R&B orchestra ready to take anyone in a cutting contest. In the fall of 2013, he was a little boy lost, runnin’ around Columbia University with a notebook full of songs trying write like Dylan, play like Brother Ray, sing like Wilson Pickett, and grow a beard like Springsteen. But, ya see, it get’s lonely out there singing songs to yourself at 3 a.m. coming down again. Fortunately, while wasting his life away at that piano, he’d run in to the core of the eventual Bridge Street Kings. Countless fleeting and disjointed jams in lounges, friendships forged, a botched summer recording session, and a full year later the Bridge Street Kings emerged as a 4 piece folk outfit intent on transcendence. Well 2 more years gone by, hundreds of songs, dozens of gigs, 6 additional cats to hip ya to their horns and guitars, a successful adventure to New Jersey, one Fender Rhodes piano, and here they are with more than pocketful of soul.
