b. c.1859, SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, California, USA, d. 7 November 1938, NEW YORK, NY, USA. As a kid Quinn sang within the cathedral choir so when living in NJ as a guy he was inspired to sing for cylinder documenting companies in NY. This is in 1892 and he was shortly documenting for many from the rising labels. His tone of voice was apparent and he sang mainly tenor but could move towards baritone. His repertoire was wide, from comic tracks, like ‘The Mick Who Threw The Brick’, to hymns, such as for example ‘I Require Thee Every Hour’ and ‘Toss Out THE LIFE SPAN Range’, and including on the way well-known tracks of your day, ‘Small Annie Rooney’, ‘Special Rosie O’Grady’ and ‘The Sidewalks Of New York’. With the past due 1890s and in to the early years from the twentieth hundred years he documented many a huge selection of music for labels such as for example Edison, Columbia Information and Victor Information’ precursor, the Consolidated Speaking Machine Firm. From 1895 Quinn started recording the brand new single-sided discs for the Berliner label, whose mother or father company, the Country wide Gram-o-phone Firm, billed him within their catalogue as ‘The Ruler of Comic Performers’. Quinn seems to have retired from documenting in 1906 but preserved his career, performing in vaudeville and based on an extended interview he provided to well-known music historian Ulysses ‘Jim’ Walsh (b. 1903, d. 1990) he also operated a reservation company. Around 1915 he resumed documenting, his music being released in the most recent documenting industry advancement, the double-sided disk. Quinn’s documenting career finished in 1918 although he continuing performing for many more years. Sometimes, Quinn documented duets including ‘Is normally Marriage FAILING?’ and ‘Fol-De-Iddley-Ido’ with Helen Trix (from the Trix Sisters), but mostly he sang single, often associated with pianist Frank Banta. Among music documented by Quinn are ‘Ikey Eisenstein’, ‘Gal Wished’, ‘Henrietta, Possess Your Met Her?’, ‘Small Old NY Is SUFFICIENT For Me personally’, ‘Glorious Beverage’, ‘Even more WORK WITH The Undertaker’, ‘Straight down In Poverty Row’, ‘We’ve Been Hoodoed’, ‘Just INFORM THEM That You Found Me personally’, ‘Hit Up The Music group’, ‘Soccer’, ‘Pretty AS BEING A Picture’, ‘Beatrice Fairfax, Show Me WHAT THINGS TO Carry out’, ‘Hello there! Boys, I’m Back again Once again’, ‘I Can Dance With Everybody But My Wife’, ‘At The Fountain Of Youngsters’, ‘Right here Comes The Bridegroom’, ‘If I Knock The ‘L’ AWAY FROM Kelly’, ‘Pat Malone Ignore That He Was Deceased’, ‘Some Small Bug WILL Discover You’ and ‘Lifestyle IS REALLY A Merry Go Circular’.
