High Praise for Margaret River Local Musician, Qynn
Richard Smith from Express magazine had this to say about Qynn: “Very few soloists can come close to the passion and force that Qynn combines into a unique experience of roots influenced contemporary tunes. His live show and guitar dexterity place him in the new breed of gunslinger songwriters, making his mark on the Australian musical landscape.”
Qynn claims Aboriginal, German and French roots and takes pride in having studied Viticulture and Oenology (the study of wine making for those who don’t know) which show off his attachment to the Margaret River region.
Margaret River local musician Qynn is a regular at gigs throughout the region, and as one of the most passionate musicians of the area, should definitely not be missed.
