Victor Quinlan is a Queer singer/songwriter who frequently graces the stages of London, ON. They consistently hook audiences with their covers and originals. Victor writes uplifting folk-punk songs about the nuances of being a child, being Queer, and recovering from adversity, with a witty spin. Any song that sounds playful will also contain profound insights; listen carefully. Victor’s music is influenced by artists such as Against Me!, Gregory Alan Isakov, and Sara Bareilles, and has been featured on Rainbow Radio at CHRW 94.9 and is regularly invited to play Pride Festivals. Victor has recorded tunes in studios in Winnipeg, London, St. Thomas, and their small but mighty apartment studio. Victor won studio time and recorded a cover of ‘Not With Haste’ in 2011 in Winnipeg, MB before they started their transition. In 2017, after transitioning, Victor was invited to perform and London’s Pride Festival, and they decided to arrange a duet with the 2011 recording that could be shared live. The response to this performance was overwhelming for everyone in attendance, including Victor. Becoming vulnerable on stage earned numerous standing ovations. They showed other Trans people that they aren’t alone, and in return, Victor learned an important lesson about the magic of vulnerability. There is a debut EP in the works which will be written, recorded, and produced entirely by Victor. The EP will be available on Spotify, iTunes, and many other platforms. They’re also in the process of releasing a music video for the pre-transition duet, ‘Not With Haste’, with Edward Platero from Platero Visual in London, ON.
