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 Bob Dylan
, play like Brother Ray Charles
, sing like Wilson Pickett
and grow a beard like Bruce Springsteen
. But, ya see, it get’s lonely out there singing songs to yourself at 3 a.m. 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 couple successful adventures to New Jersey, and here they are with more than pocketful of soul.
