Kellin Quinn is a young American Rock singer whose fame came from his work with a hardcore rock band named „Sleeping with Sirens”.
He excelled in songwriting and composing music for his band and has a lot of fans who love keyboards because he is also an awesome keyboardist.
Although he had many issues to resolve in life, from drug troubles to entering not so great relationships he resolved it and is now trying to set an example to his children and his fans.
He was born as Kellin Quinn Bostwick on April 24, 1986, in the town of Medford, located in the state of Oregon, in the United States.
He was raised by his loving mother Mary Quinn and his father who is named Jeuse Bestwick. But although his parents showed great affection towards him, his parents didn’t get along so well.
They often fought and decided that they should end their marriage and go separate ways.
He was only 3 years old when that happened so he wasn’t aware of everything but he claims that he felt that something was wrong even though he was such a small kid.
But later he confirmed that the lack of a real family probably left traces on him without him being aware of it and although his mother tried twice as hard.
Kellin liked music from an early age and started playing with instruments as soon as he entered school.
He grew up alongside four siblings in the family house in Oregon. His sisters are named Harper and Kailey, while his brother is Devereaux and Hudson. He was close to them and they were all very tight.
He continued to pursue music even in high school and after graduation decided to find his career in the music niche since he was an awesome keyboardist and singer.
He was 23 years old when he decided to form his own band and he named it Closer 2 Closure. He gathered Justin Hills, Gabe Barham, and Jack Fowler and became the lead vocalist of the new band, called Sleeping with Sirens.
Some of the other songs he played with other bands for were „Screenplay“ and „Our Name is Citylights“.
Sleeping with Sirens was brought to life by combining members of „For All We Know“ and „Paddock Park“ post-hardcore bands.
Their debut album was in 2010 and was titled „With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear“. It was released through Rise Records and was praised mostly because of Kellin Quinn and his vocal abilities.
The most listened single from the album was „If I’m James Dean, You’re Audrey Hepburn“.
„Let’s Cheers to This“ was their 2nd album, also released through Rise and produced by Kris Crummet. It came out in 2011 and was crucial for the band’s success since it spawned a hit single named „If You Can’t Hang“.
Kris Crummet was a great thing for the band since he is a skilled and versatile artist and producer. He plays percussion, electronics, and piano and is a great producer who did all the mixing and mastering on the album.
„Feel“ is the name of their 3rd album and was released in June 2013. Cameron Mizell produced the album which has many guest appearances from Matty Mullins and Fronz.
The album gained positive critics and came to No.3 on Billboard 200 chart. In 2015 they have released their 4th album under the named „Madness“ but this time it was released and distributed through Epitaph Records.
They also changed the production of the album because it was completely produced by the band with the help of John Feldmann who was happy to be engaged in such a collaboration.
The lead song from the album was named „Kick“. The album received a nomination for Album of the Year by Alternative Music Awards.
In September 2017 Sleeping with Sirens released its new 5th album. The album „Gossip” was released through Warner Bros Records. It charted on no. 38 of the US Billboard 200 chart and was completely produced by David Bendeth.
In the autumn of 2019, the band released their 6th album called „How It Feels to Be Lost”. It was released through Sumerian Records.
He also created his own clothing line which he named Anthem Made. This line of apparel is very popular amongst his fans and was relaunched in 2018 because of many questions his fans kept asking about it.
Kellin Quinn publically confirmed that he had an addiction problem and that he became an alcoholic. This caused him to estrange from his group but he eventually took his life back after admitting the problem.
Their last album „How It Feels to Be Lost“ is the product of his new life vision os the music from the album is different.
Itis much heavier and bolder and Quinn called it „their most honest album“.
Kellin still goes to AA and tries to avoid alcohol at any time. He is convinced that alcohol would ruin his life if he had continued abusing it.
Kellin has founded an organization called „Fittingly dubbed Dreamer” which helps promising artists to be noticed and to get an opportunity to perform and record their music.
The Band’s song „Legends“ was used as an anthem for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games which were held in the Korean city of Pyeongchang.
Kellin has over 1,7 million followers on his Instagram account where he posts regularly.
As for his personal life, he is married to Katelynne Quinn from the spring of 2013. The wedding ceremony was small and private respecting the wishes of Katelynne, his longtime girlfriend.
Kellin and Katelynne got their first child in 2012, even before they got married. Her name is Copeland. Katelynne has two children from her previous marriage, two sons named Rowan and Liam. Kellin is their stepfather and he is a very responsible father.
Kellin loves tattoos and has a lot of them. He has tattooed a treble-clef on his right hand.
He decided to put a sentence going Before “You” I Serve Nothing on his chest, but not in a romantic way but in a religious way.
His romantic tattoo can be also found on his chest. It is a little padlock tattoo and his wife Victoria tattooed herself the tattoo of the key which opens that padlock.
Kellin has a tattoo of the letter K which he has put on his left hand, on the finger which usually has the ring. But it is interesting that hid mother has the same tattoo of the letter K but on her wrist.
He is also recognizable for his black sleeves tattoos and powerful tattoos of wolf and lamb which show his love for tattooing.
He tattooed the name of his daughter and her birthday numbers on his arms.
As for his drug addiction and his fight to overcome the problem he succeeded in making it his past problem and is now speaking about the issue of glorifying drugs in the music which he thinks went over a rooftop.
Kellin hopes that he can be a role model for the children and show them that anything can be done if you decide to.
He also says that he knows that he will have ups and downs but he feels that he would never return to his wildlife.
His favorite food is butterfly chicken and halloumi cheese but he is an extra huge fan of ice-cream.
He says that one of his worst memories of food he ate was when he ate cobra and drank its blood while the band toured in Southeast Asia.
He says it was an intense experience but he was later scared that he will be sick because his ankles swelled up.
