Kellin Quinn is back at it again with his solo side-project Downer Inc and he’s got a new song for everyone to learn called ‘Home‘. The upbeat, motivational anthem shines a light on Kellin’s incredible vocal performance and shows us what he can do when he’s working in a more melodic pop act, compared to his usual duties fronting Sleeping With Sirens.
We asked Kellin last year what the inspiration was for starting Downer Inc, to which he told our very own Tamara May:
I was trying to just think of ways to keep the year going as far as writing music, and my longtime friend and producer Cameron Mizell who did our first album, With Ears To See And Eyes To Hear and also our album Feel. He and I got on the phone and started discussing music stuff, and he began sending me these amazing instrumentals and I was able to create music about what I was going through. It was a journal of thoughts about what I was seeing on the news, and what I was feeling at home.
It’s been really cool to include everybody. I know a lot of people who struggle and don’t have the opportunity to continue creating. So I just wanted to set the bar and show people that you can really do anything you want, no matter what the circumstances, and we don’t have to give up just because of the negative stuff going on in the world.
Last year, Downer Inc debuted the EP Whatever This Is (our review here) and ‘Home‘ marks the first taste of new music since then.
