Quinell Oucharek (“Quinell”) is a Canadian-born, up-and-coming musician based out of Pasco, WA. For the most part, he is just a regular guy who, in a round-about way, stumbled upon his passion for singing, songwriting, and performing.

This charismatic musician has not always toted a guitar, but rather, spent much of his stereotypical Canadian life growing up playing ice hockey. His first introduction to guitar came at 15, when a family friend loaned him a guitar with the specific instructions: “as long as you use it, it’s yours.” Appreciative of the gift, Quinell learned a few basic chords and simple songs, but maintained his pre-occupation with the on-ice pursuits.
