Sean became enchanted with music at an early age. Studying piano at age 7 and then taking up the drums at 10 the young musician was very clear on his life’s intention. By age 15 he was playing clubs – by age 19 he was recording his first international release. Whether it’s propelling turbulent progressive metal or creating space and pocket in a variety of styles, Sean’s musical voice is always recognizable.
“SABIAN cymbals offer me the variety that is unmatched by other cymbal makers. I know that no matter what my musical situation is, SABIAN is going to have the perfect cymbal.” Sean’s latest recording (CYNIC – “Traced In Air”) profiles some of the great sounds SABIAN has to offer.
