Bottom Of The Sea - Sean McConnell
We always like an album release gig and our next LCM Showcase artist US singer-songwriter Sean McConnelll is releasing his self titled new one at The Garage on Friday (2nd December). Sean was born in Massachusetts to two folk singers who played in local venues in the Boston area. His family moved to Georgia when he was eleven years old, and while there he began playing guitar and writing his own songs. Sean attended Middle Tennessee State University in Nashville, where he performed regionally and continued songwriting. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is the catchy and sage 'Bottom Of The Sea' taken from his new album.
Sean released his debut album on his own label in 2000, when he was just 15 years old and went on to self-issue five more full-lengths and three EPs between 2003 and 2014. Concomitantly with this, Sean entered into a publishing deal with Warner-Chappell, writing songs for artists such as Meat Loaf, Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Buddy Miller, David Nail, Rascal Flatts, Jason Castro, Scotty McCreery, Jimmy Wayne, Phil Stacey, Brothers Osborne, Plain White T's, Eli Young Band and Brad Paisley, as well as for the television show Nashville.
Sean releases under his own name, including the 2009 album 'Saints, Thieves, Liars', drew the attention of the Texas red dirt music scene while he was still living in Nashville. Sean wrote songs for, and performed on the albums of, Texas musicians Wade Bowen and the Randy Rogers Band and opened for Bowen on a nationwide tour.
Sean signed with Rounder Records in 2016, and a self-titled album (the first not released on his own imprint) was released in July. The album was produced by Ian Fitchuk and Jason Lehning.
