HANK QUILLEN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Where are you from and could you tell us a little bit of your upbringing? Originally from Gate City, VA. Based out of Nashville, TN nowGate City is a small town in Virginia close to the border with Tennessee. The Carter Family is from that area and it's a great place to grow up, my song 'Where I'm From' is about growing up there and that area and appreciating it after you've moved away.


What genre of music do you make and when did you first decide to be a musician? Folk and Blues but dabble in quite a few genres combining them in certain songs. I've been writing, drawing and creative for as long as I can remember so music came along also with that. I think being a musician was decided for me.


Who are some of the notable artists and people that influenced your career thus far? Ry Cooder, Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson along with Beatles and Led Zepplin.


Could you tell us about your latest project? I Gotta Know is my latest release and is an ode to the funk vibe of the 70s. 


What should we expect from you in the near future? Working on some blues rock and folk to be released soon along the lines of a previous release A Southern Style River Revival.


Could you give us some advice that you can offer to someone who is just getting started in making music? Enjoy the process, sometimes it flows easy and a lot of times it can be a grind, try to enjoy each aspect of it if you really want to do this full time.


Are there any important achievements you have gained since beginning to do music? Quite a few radio plays here and there and starting to gain some traction with Spotify streams and other online platforms.


Besides music, what are some of the things that you are into? I'm also an actor and have been fortunate to work with directors such as Shane Black and Steven Soderbergh. Had the opportunity to appear along side Russell Crowe in The Nice Guys and with Daniel Craig, Adam Driver and Channing Tatum in Logan Lucky. I've also been in other movies and TV Shows most recently the mini series Women of the Movement which tells the story of  Emmett Till through the eyes of his mother Mamie Till-Mobley.


Are you currently on tour or planning to be? Nothin in the works as of yet, mostly recording right now.


Any last remarks? Thanks for the opportunity to be part of Flyah Magazine and to have this interview.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
