Biography

Quentin Walston is a pianist, composer, and music educator from Loudoun County, Virginia.

Starting as a folk singer/songwriter, Quentin built up his sound in Appalachian roots. During piano studies in college, he switched to performing jazz, seeking to blend his early influences with an established jazz language. He now leads his own groups, performing gospel arrangements, originals, and jazz standards. Quentin is also an active composer and arranger, writing for student ensembles in the Northern Virginia area in addition to his own projects.
