COUNTRY Canada      
GROUP QUEEN-’WE WILL ROCK YOU’ / FREELANCE      

Biography

Sean is currently drumming in the Queen musical - 'WE WILL ROCK YOU' at The Panasonic Theatre in Toronto. Sean stays busy doing that along with sessions and other freelance work. Before this, he was a member of the Kim Mitchell Band for two years and still gets the opportunity to do some gigs with Kim and Peter.

Sean also plays with what he calls "the best cover band on the planet" - The Test Icicles. He has also had the pleasure of touring and recording with Juno Award winner Derek Miller for a few years and has played with Alannah Myles, Sass Jordan, Moe Berg, Tom Cochrane, The Raving Mojos and the Toronto production of the rock musical, 'Hedwig And The Angry Inch'. He also formed his own group, Snapdragons, with friend Keith Andrews and released a great record. Touring Canada and Europe with Taste Of Joy, plus various jingles, club gigs and TV shows rounds out his activities since the mid-90's.

Sean's formative years were spent with Haywire. They released four records, sold quite a few of them, filmed nine videos, and toured relentlessly. Sean says "It was a great run and we still manage to dust it off and do the odd show. I also have to mention my first band, Broken Toys. We criss-crossed the country many times in the early 80's and this was where I first truly discovered the drums. If anyone told me then that I would be jamming 'Smoke On The Water' with Ian Gillan and Kim Mitchell, backing up Brian May on 'Bohemian Rhapsody', performing for Robbie Robertson at Canada's Walk Of Fame or playing at The Budokan in Tokyo with Haywire, I wouldn't have bought it."

Sean endorses Sonor Drums, SABIAN Cymbals, and Regal Tip Drumsticks.
