A grassroots following now hundreds of thousands deep has turned to Sean for that kind of musical exploration for almost 20 years. Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Meat Loaf, Jake Owen, Brothers Osborne, Christina Aguilera, Buddy Miller and more have all recorded his songs––a dizzying list that spans not just styles, but generations. Success shows no sign of slowing: Sean earned his first no. 1 single on Country charts in early 2018 with breakout artist Brett Young’s delivery of "Mercy," which the two co-wrote. As a performer, Sean packs listening rooms and quiets unruly bar crowds. His sound – a warm tenor painting vivid stories over acoustic guitar often cushioned by keys or other strings – has prompted a diverse range of music scenes from the storied Boston Folk community to Texas’s defiantly self-sovereign camp to warmly claim Sean as one of their own.
Secondhand Smoke is a stunning portrait of that Argus-eyed little boy, all grown up and grappling with what that entails. Recorded and produced by Sean over two months in his home studio, the album is a bona fide musical rarity: a 13-song set given time to marinate in its artist’s often isolated care. The result is an intimate look not just at a moment in Sean’s life, but at unhurried creativity’s potential. "It was an amazingly intoxicating experience," Sean says of the process. "This time around, there was no clock. I could create when the inspiration hit––it could be two or three in the morning. It felt amazing. Total creative freedom. No middle man, no reason for me not to see every thought through to completion."
