Tell us about yourself and your music
My name is Quentin James also known as Sargeant Q. I am 33 yrs old who is from Providence Rhode Island. I have a college degree and I have been in the music industry for 10 yrs.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release; Cry, Pt.1 is an emotional song that has touched so many people especially those who have reached out from Georgia. Instead of Fighting and Looting, I decided to take the pain out through a pen to the paper, out my mouth, to the mic! Beyonce’s producer, “Beau Vallis” mixed and mastered the track at Columbia Records.
What inspired you to write this release?
What inspired me to write this release was all the pain and suffering I have witnessed around America. The justice system has failed on so many levels, and it’s left up to us to correct it! Not all Police Officers are bad! I keep saying; nobody is listening! My American people; “as I cry” Instead of taking your anger out on the police, Take it out on the Justice System! The courts the powerful agencies! God Bless America!
