Now 23 years old, Sean’s first experiences in music were through family exposure to Irish and folk music. He picked up a guitar at 11 and started playing publicly at 17, when he instantly fell in love with live performance.

Blind from the age of 3, his disability allows him to forge a uniquely honest connection with his audience.

Authenticity is very important to Sean, who idolises artists in blues, folk and punk who kept their music raw and real.

In a world where disabled people can find it difficult to be truly independent, Sean loves being his own boss - answerable only to his audience. In music creation and performance, he is on a level playing field.

You are welcome to join the first audience to hear Sean and his very talented backing band play this set in public.

About this EP, Sean says:

“This 4 track live EP was recorded with my backing musicians in one take. The backing vocals were added later. I did it this way because I want to be authentic in my lyrics and my music. I don’t want to mar that with synthetic or unrealistic methods of creation.”

“The concept of the EP is that each song represents a moment or time period in my life, e.g The Moment, the final song on the EP, describes my feelings on having an intimate conversation in a café with someone I was very attracted to.”

“Similarly, The Getaway is an expression of the feelings that many people, specifically disabled people in my case, feel on a daily basis. The helplessness and desire to just get away from everything, the desire to have someone to come along and fly them away from their problems.”

“The City deals with the feelings of loneliness that many people, young and old feel as they grow older. The desire to reach out to old friends, and yet not having time to because life in a busy city gives you no time for reflection or communication.”
