EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Quinn Sings ‘Say Hello To Heaven’ As A Tribute To Chris Cornell
Ryan Quinn plays all the instruments and vocals in an emotional and stunning rendition of 'Say Hello To Heaven' in honor of Chris Cornell.
CNY native Ryan Quinn was hit hard by the death of Chris Cornell. Ryan told us "Chris Cornell was the reason I wanted to become a singer... I was mesmerized by the guy. He's what made me take singing seriously."
I was the one that pushed him to play all the instruments because I knew he could do it...
Ryan wanted to record an acoustic version of 'Say Hello To Heaven' and asked the former 805 Band drummer Frank Briggs for some help. When we spoke with Briggs, he said, "I was the one that pushed him to play all the instruments because I knew he could do it... and offered my studio." A few days later Ryans song and video is taking the internet by storm.
Ryan earned his first taste of stardom from The Voice, and it now living in Hollywood. Former 805 drummer Frank Briggs has put together an all-star band for Ryan that features Loren Gold (The Who, Kenny Loggins) on keys, Chris Golden (Rod Stewart, Carly Simon, Black Eyed Peas) on bass, Aaron Kaplan (Rod Stewart, TV, Film Composer) on guitar and Briggs on drums. They're having a blast jamming together and are looking forward to playing some gigs soon.
