New Album July 13th, 2018!
Punk Americana: that's what Sean Tobin has dubbed the unnameable genre of music that is his sound. As a solo artist who got his start playing covers in coffee shops, bars and basements around the New York TriState area, Sean's influences range from the Punk Rock sounds of the Stone Pony to the Country Western twang of a Chevrolet pickup and everything in-between.
Sean grew up in Brielle, New Jersey, just ten miles south of the music Mecca that is Asbury Park. Entranced by the rock n' roll scene of seaside bars and the innate rhythm of his home state, Sean wanted nothing more than to contribute a new sound to the symphony-- his sound.
When he was 20, Sean moved to Ireland for six months where he performed as a busker on the streets of Galway. Two years later, after getting a degree in Creative Writing from Fairfield Univeristy, Sean returned to Europe to walk El Camino de Santiago in Spain with nothing but his guitar and a backpack. He performed in every major city along the pilgrimage-- Leon, Burgos, and Santiago de Compostela-- and then continued his tour of Europe in Lisbon, Porto, Lagos, Madrid, Barcelona, Nice, and Rome. Three months later, he returned to his favorite streets in the city of Galway.
Sean recently released his first single: "Winter," which was written in deep connection to his youth in the hamlets of New Jersey. On Friday, July 13th, 2018, Sean will be releasing his debut album: "This Midnight."
Sean has the equipment necessary to make any event unique. Since he was sixteen, Sean has been playing private and public events, happy hours and every other hour at pubs, patio bars and restaurants. He plays almost 200 cover songs ranging from Springsteen to Buffett and everything in between.
Whether the guest list has twenty people or two-hundred, Sean can make any event intimate with his charming personality and interactive performances. Sean typically plays 1-3 hour sets, but can play for as long as 4 hours. Sean offers rates that no multi-person band can beat, and everyone is sure to have a blast listening, dancing and singing along to Sean's renditions of their favorite songs.
When he's not playing private events, Sean travels all over the world to play on street corners, in bars and other places open to the public! Stay connected for info on happy hours, open mics, or other live events!
