Sean Paul sings songs and plays acoustic guitar. He goes hard enough to rock roadside bars but gets quiet enough to connect with audiences in nursing homes and other more intimate settings, too. Based in Mill City, Oregon, Sean plays the music that’s always been part of him by artists including Paul Simon, Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, Ryan Adams, and John Mayer mixed with his own original songs inspired by this life we all live. His own life has included stints working in semiconductors, real estate, improv, acting, and as a traveling pitchman. These experiences all led him to the musical world he now inhabits, a world which is rapidly expanding for him at an age when most musicians are trying to bow out gracefully.
Sean played over 150 dates in five Western states last year between busking and venues and that number is expected to increase in 2019. His focus is almost entirely on live solo performance and he has the rare ability to get songs across to children, teens, parents, the elderly, and anyone else who’s listening, a skill that can’t be taught, only attained. He works diligently to serve both the songs and his listeners better and this is why people enjoy his shows.
Music is Sean’s third real career, the one he wanted from the beginning. He knows being a musician isn’t an easy way to make a living but is a beautiful way to live. His influences include Dave Matthews, Anders Osborne, and Charles Bukowski but Sean Paul is a completely authentic performer in his own right. Any event or venue seeking a guy with a guitar who comes off as more than just a guy with a guitar needs to give him serious consideration.
