Quinn Tsan & Johnny Lewis

Quinn Tsan & Johnny Lewis (Chicago/Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Indie Folk

Having spent a lot of time touring together with other singer/songwriters, Chicago’s Quinn Tsan and Brooklyn’s Johnny Lewis — both originally from Minneapolis — join forces for a joint MPMF show. Lewis started out working in electronic music as a producer, but he developed a love for writing acoustic music and has found success with an airy Folk Pop sound that is lightly adorned with electronic atmospherics. His self-titled debut album will be out the Tuesday before MPMF. Tsan moved to Chicago in 2008 to do back-up vocals for Joe Pug. After singing with other artists, Tsan began writing her own material and performing with just her and an acoustic guitar. Her first release, the EP Good Winter, is due soon.
