It all started when…
… a 14 year old boy was introduced to guitar based music by a school friend. Sean became instantly hooked on the instrument and began researching as many influences as he could. All the blues greats; the Kings (Albert, BB and Freddie), Collins, Cray, alongside Moore, Knopfler, Lang and of course the reason Sean says he plays guitar…. Eric Clapton. Music from that point became Sean’s main focus in life. He would cycle 20 kms to watch friends rehearse in a band, which after some time he became the singer of: Journeymen. Years later and through various incarnations, The Sean Webster band was formed. This itself has had a few line-up changes over the years, but Sean believes change can only be a good thing in the end: “I’m not the greatest fan of change at the beginning because I like things to run smooth, but it also forces you to learn, evaluate and ultimately re-shape what you already have. Keeping it fresh!”
Sean has toured many countries such as The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, The United Kingdom, Finland, Poland and The U.S.A. playing festivals and venues throughout.
He has also appeared on national FOX TV in Austin Texas, recorded live sessions for BBC radio 2 and appeared for interviews on many regional radio and TV shows.
Sean has released 6 albums and 1 EP. His 6th and latest album entitled Leave your heart at the door has Sean going back to being the only guitarist on the album, something which hasn’t happened since his first. At the risk of sounding like a cliche, the album REALLY does have something for everyone. It has blues, ballads and mainstream offerings which Sean hopes will keep his fans interested.
