Gainesville based independent musician, Quincy Allen Flint, began writing original music in March of 2020 during self-isolation at the start of the COVID19 pandemic. In 2021, Quincy was nominated for the Songwriter Of The Year by The Songwriters Showcase of America. In 2022, he performed at The Florida Folk Festival in White Springs, Florida, Heartwood Music Festival in Gainesville, Florida, and Barberville Folk Festival, among others. As a producer, Quincy hosted the first ever Townes Fest in Gainesville, FL, the first annual First Street Music Festival in downtown Gainesville, and is currently organizing, PorchFest in the Historic Duckpond neighborhood of Gainesville.
Quincy plays predominately around the Gainesville area, but has travelled as far west as California and as far north as South Dakota to share his music. He has shared the stage with Michael O'Meara, Mike Boulware, Dan Stepp, Monica Leadon, Uncle Mosie, Quartermoon, and many more. He has composed original songs ranging in style from Conventional American Folk, Classic Country Western, to Melodic Piedmont Blues and Talkin' Blues. His musical influences include Townes Van Zandt, Mississippi John Hurt, and Doc Watson.
By day, Quincy teaches mathematics at Santa Fe College and physics at The University of Florida where he received his doctorate in electrical engineering. At night he writes fantastically forlorn folk music. His music frequently draws on imagery from nature and reflects on the trials and trivialities of the human experience.
