Quinn Oulton – Show Your Face EP

South London-based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist & producer Quinn Oulton readies new music with his upcoming EP ‘Show Your Face’ releasing in July 2021 on London-based label DeepMatter. Exhibiting a raw sound, melding soaring vocals and tangled acoustic textures with abstract electronics, the EP’s sound is deeply unique.

In the EP’s first single ‘Show Your Face’, Oulton joins forces with vocalist (and Touching Bass family member) Demae to offer an airy jazz number, highly refined in its cadences and colours. With a graceful arrangement and elegant vocals, the first single acts as the perfect appetizer for this new body of work.

Quinn picked up the saxophone at a very young age. His thirst for music was nurtured by mentors Julian Joseph and Soweto Kinch – two heavyweights of the UK Jazz scene. Although Jazz was his focus, he was surrounded by blues, folk and rock music at home thanks to his dad’s diverse record collection. His first leap into the world as a solo artist was a self-produced EP in 2017 exploring his own voice and skills as an instrumentalist to tell a story. This release earned him a place on the 2018 Red Bull Music Academy, a two-week course that entirely changed his scope and ambitions. His eyes were opened to the world of electronic music culture – working alongside legends such as Just Blaze and father of techno Mike Banks (Underground Resistance). His 2020 EP ‘Long Gone’ presented a more refined sound as he honed his production skills and pushed his vocal abilities further. He tours and regularly appears on radio and TV alongside 2020 Mercury Nominee, Moses Boyd.
