Sean lives and breathes the bass. Through his various projects and work with bass-oriented companies, he has dedicated his life to the advancement and pursuit of mastery of the bass guitar, and is constantly learning and growing as a musician. With a passion for singing as well, Sean enjoys a career not only as a successful sideman for artists from all walks of life, but also as a front man in bands such as his own Combinator. He proudly represents Tsunami Cables, Warwick basses, Genzler Amplification, and Sonic Nuance Electronics.
Sean stays very active in his home Seattle music scene, performing with various groups and continuing to record on session dates when available. An Emmy Award-winning artist for his musical work with Women in Film Seattle/ Credit Unions of Washington, he is a seasoned clinician and demo artist, and has performed at high profile venues and festivals around the country and in Asia and Europe.
Never one to rest on his laurels, he continuously seeks to broaden his horizons through employing new technology for live performances and recordings, as well as pushing the envelope technically on the electric bass. “My first and most beloved teacher, the late-but-great James Michael Thomas, taught me that I should be a musician first and a bassist second. I go for what sounds good to me, regardless of what the current attitude may be. Attitudes have a funny way of changing.”
Sean currently mans the helm of Fairchild Sound, an award-winning production studio and performance venture, from his home studio in the Seattle area. Please feel free to contact him for info and availability regarding your performance, recording, or touring project.
