Raven Quinn is a singer, songwriter, and recording artist based in Los Angeles, CA. Quinn's self-titled debut album was released digitally worldwide on her birthday, March 4th 2010 via all major digital music retailers (iTunes World Wide, MySpace Music, Rhapsody, Napster, eMusic, IMVU, Amazon/ Amazon UK, Lala, Shockhound, Amazon On Demand, LimeWire Store, Nokia, Zune). Due to overwhelming support from an ever growing legion of followers, Quinn's debut skyrocketed to the number one position on Amazon's "Movers and Shakers" chart- which charts Amazon's fastest selling digital albums- and also held top 100 chart positions in Rock and MP3 albums in general, all within the first twelve hours of release. The success proved to be an unexpected victory and incredible birthday gift for the self-released indie artist.
The songs which appear on the disc, penned by Quinn and Juno Award winning producer & engineer Dan Brodbeck, range from dark and brooding goth rock tracks to light, ethereal, and angelic ballads. The album takes the listener on a very personal journey through Quinn's psyche and vividly illustrates the darkness and light that each of us experience in life and that we all harbor within ourselves, while featuring the enormous instrumental talents of some of Quinn's own childhood heroes: George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob, Souls of We) and Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, Poe).
Quinn and Brodbeck were first introduced by close mutual friend and fellow artist/musician Dolores O'Riordan (The Cranberries) and the pairing proved to be quite a musical match, resulting in a continued creative connection. Since completion of Quinn's debut, Brodbeck has resumed his role as producer and engineer for Quinn's sophomore effort Not In Vain (currently in production). Brodbeck also co-wrote and produced Quinn's track "Catalyst" which was written and recorded for campaign use for Rover 4G, and ultimately was released for Rock Band 2 & 3.
Legendary music trade Hits Magazine has praised Quinn for bringing "an edge to the singer/songwriter genre", dubbed her a "rock goddess" and states that she is "an artist to watch." Other recent accomplishments also include Quinn's inclusion on the 2011 Grammy Award Ballot across multiple categories, the addition of three of her tracks (The Window, Decadence, and Catalyst) to Rock Band Network, and an artist sponsorship with Daisy Rock Guitars.
