Quinton Tarr is a self-taught singer-songwriter, guitarist who got his first guitar at the age of 14 years old and a few years later decided to leave school early to pursue music full time. His main influences while growing up were Punk Rock bands such as MxPx and Social Distortion; but later developed a love for Grunge/Post-Grunge bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Bush, as well Alternative bands such as A Perfect Circle and Tool. He has led a few bands, namely Sons of Us and The Burning Society, but is currently pursuing a solo music career playing acoustic alternative rock with influences like Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder. His aim is to someday do music full time; on an international level.
It's the reality I choose, the best part of me. Gives me a sense of purpose.
To perform and record my songs full-time, on an international level
Myself, it's a daily struggle.

Music and then whatever life happens to throw at me.
Depends on the song.
That's a tough one, there aren't really words. The simple answer would be "In my element." but there's so much more to it than that.
It's gotten harder for me, because things have moved in the electronic direction and for me that's not really music. Music, in my opinion, is made with instruments, not sound effects, loops and samples.
The audience and how driven they are by what the media says is good.
Yeah I generally try to network with as many bands and artists as possible. I'm a strong believer in the DIY punk ethic as it allows me to do music on my own terms.
Talent and internet access. A car helps too, and maybe a little bit of money, haha!
