Quinn XCII Teases Sound of Debut Album, Explains His Stage Name

The Detroit-based singer/songwriter told us about his diverse influences and how he blends those sounds together in a "melting pot" of unique pop.

When Detroit-based singer/songwriter Quinn XCII released his new single "Make Time" last week, he made time to stop by Fuse and chat. (Okay, from now on we'll leave the clever wordplay to him.) Quinn XCII tells us the story behind his unique stage name (surprise, his name isn't "Quinn") and names the artists who influenced his unique mix of pop, EDM, reggae, and hip-hop.

Plus, Quinn reveals his first full-length album is set for a fall release, explaining what listeners can expect from it. He assures day-one fans that the Quinn XCII sound they've come to love is still there, but with a bit of evolution thanks to some new collaborators.
