Sometimes, extraordinary individuals emerge from the most ordinary circumstances. Perhaps this is the case for Sean McVerry, who spent his childhood in a quiet, small-town in Connecticut, playing his mother's piano to fill time. Or, perhaps, he was simply born to be a musician.

"As soon as I learned the C major scale, I technically wrote my first song," shares Sean. "I started playing my own piano songs at recitals after my second year in lessons. Then in the fifth grade, I tried to form a band, playing along to drum loops on a Casio keyboard."

Heavily influenced by Paul Simon, Brian Wilson and Brian Eno, Sean has blossomed into the consummate singer/songwriter. A multi-instrumentalist, his remarkable talent shines through in every aspect of the craft, from his succinct arrangements to his poignant lyrics and breathtaking command of the guitar, drum machine and piano keys. His captivating, honey-tinged voice occasionally slinks in and out of falsetto or a subtle, perfectly timed growl, bringing to mind the likes of Chris Martin and Nick Drake. Yet, his ability to seamlessly blend Pop and Indie Rock with elements of Electronica might be what make McVerry so very unforgettable.

"I strive to create simple material with incredible depth," says Sean. "I've always been fascinated by the way artists like Paul Simon and Brian Wilson are able to convey an emotion, without ever actually verbalizing what that emotion is."

Inspired not just by music, but also by art and literature, Sean's writing contains traces of those he admires, Fitzgerald, Salinger, and Vonnegut. "If I'm able to create a setting and characters in my head," explains Sean "chances are a musical idea will come through."

Currently, Sean is gearing up for the release of his first EP, Hourglass Switchboard I, which comes out in January of 2016. He's also completed the follow-up EP, Hourglass Switchboard II, which will be released later in the year.

Now, having completed Hourglass Switchboard I and II, what seems to be most exciting for Sean is bringing an immersive live experience to audiences across the country. His nationwide tour begins in January of 2016.
