Sean Kennedy


  1. 1.
    Young & Depressed
Sean was raised in Massachusetts and his music is the byproduct of a particular type of melancholy that exists in New England — an Irish-Catholic-bury-your-emotions-and-try-not-to-drink-yourself-to-death kind of thing that can be tragic, but also heartwarming.
As a kid, he would spend hours after school at his father’s garage listening to soft rock giants like James Taylor and Joni Mitchell. An obsession with John Mayer turned into a fascination with blues music that became a love affair with psychedelic rock, old and new. Each new musical flame was fanned by his uncle who was formerly signed to Epic Records and lived just down the street.
After moving to Providence, Rhode Island, Sean formed and fronted the Famous Winters, an indie rock outfit built on intricate fingerpicking and Nirvana-esque dynamics. Two years later, he moved to Brooklyn, NY where he spent most of his time waiting tables and recording demos on an old 8-track. After “quitting indie” and moving to Los Angeles in 2017, Sean signed a publishing deal BMG Rights Management and has since experienced success as a songwriter and producer with artists including UPSAHL, Chloe Lilac and RYANN.
Sean loves Good Will Hunting, Cape Cod, ice cream and cigarettes (although he hasn’t smoked one in two years.) He is currently self-managed and his first release comes via Brooklyn’s Slumbo Labs Records.
