"I want to stay true to where I come from, and go from there," says Sullivan. “The artists that inspire me to do that are always hungry for the new. They never repeat themselves. They just grow and become more unique -- and that's what I aim to do as an artist.”
Having developed genuinely jaw-dropping skills as a guitar player, Sullivan's more recent learning curve has been with pen and paper. "I've always considered myself a songwriter," he says. "On the last few records, it just wasn't something I was doing all the time. I was focused on other things, like my guitar playing and developing my vocals, both of which I continue to do.” Since the release of 2017's MIDNIGHT HIGHWAY, Sullivan has evolved into the singer-songwriter genre while effectively highlighting his guitar mastery.
