Details

Quinn Christopherson draws on craft and inspiration from several generations of storytellers and musicians and his personal journey resulting in music which is in equal parts authentic, well crafted and moving. Quinn is an Ahtna Athabascan and Iñupiaq songwriter, born, raised in Anchorage, Alaska. He was the winner of NPR’s Tiny Desk contest in 2019 and recently collaborated with Yo Yo Ma and drag queen vocalist Pattie Gonia on the single “Won’t Give Up”: an anthem which inspires listeners to address the climate disaster and honors the rapidly melting Exit glacier in Alaska. His recent release Write Your Name in Pink incorporates upbeat synth pop elements that serve as a counterpoint to some of the painful but compassionately handled personal stories in his songs. In a TEDx talk, Quinn shares the ways in which his music helped him navigate journeys through loss, mental health challenges and sobriety. One of his most notable songs “Erase Me”, grapples with his feelings about the changes in his experience of privilege after his transition. It is a powerful anthem for self-acceptance and a notable example of the complexities of identity in our times.
