When QUIÑ enters the VIBE headquarters a little after the scheduled interview time, the petite bombshell with a blonde pixie cut is only flanked by a team of two. She hugs nearly everyone in the small office (which admittedly seems a little unusual at first), but as she begins to shed the layers she’s built up in defense of New York’s brisk weather and even colder attitude, it’s clear to see that warm and embracing aura is just a part of QUIÑ being herself.
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, QUIÑhas built quite the reputation in the industry as a go-to-artist and performer. Fueled by an active imagination and an ambient sound, QUIÑ’s “Fantasy Soul music” has gained an impressive following on Soundcloud and an equally cool olodex of featured guest appearances.
Drawing influence from such artists as Erykah Badu, St. Vincent, and Beyoncé, QUIÑ’s confidence is such that it radiates through her deliberately laid back tracks with an alluring effortlessness. If tracks like “LightSpeed” are any indication of what’s to come, we’re mighty excited for her debut EP, expected for release this fall.
If you’re not familiar with rising Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter QUIÑ, the time to do so is now.
