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. 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 works as an engineer at the University of Florida where he received a doctorate in electrical engineering. At night he writes fantastically forlorn folk music in hopes of one day writing the perfect song. His music frequently draws on imagery from nature and reflects on the trials and trivialities of the human experience.
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. In 2022, Quincy hosted the first ever Townes Fest in Gainesville, FL and will be performing at The Florida Folk Festival in White Springs, Florida. Quincy was nominated for the 2021 Songwriter Of The Year by The Songwriters Showcase of America.
