26-year-old Longford musician Sean Rooney is a hidden gem in the Irish music scene. His live performances offer something uniquely special, while his songs tell the most beautiful stories inspired by life experiences; everything from depression to abandoned rural pubs. A soulful sound with indie rock undertones and often inspired by R ’n’ B, Seán averts any particular genre but rather draws from a number of styles.
He’s carving his own niche, reminiscent of Alex Turner in The Last Shadow Puppets with the perfectly polished image, and by his own admission draws heavy influence from Van Morrison, Paul Weller and The Kinks. Seán has released a number of live music videos on YouTube and is steadily working towards his debut EP release in mid-2017. He is definitely one to watch.
