Sean Cleland presents a unique live music selection that is perfect for your next event or wedding.
Sean is an award-winning songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist based out of Honolulu, Hawai'i. He is a 3-time Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawaii's state-wide equivalent of the Grammy awarded by the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts) winner for 'Alternative Album of the Year' (2019, 2021, 2022). Described as an "innovative singer-songwriter and prolific performer who plays pop, rock, and soul" by The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, his music can in one moment be introspective and refined, and in the next, fiery and emotional. Blending together a hooky pop-songwriting aesthetic with the raw emotion of his electric guitar, Sean traverses and synthesizes the frenetic passion of rock and blues with the sultry sounds of r&b, jazz, and soul.
Sean's solo act features a completely live (zero pre-recorded material) looping performance of vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, and sampled drums. He offers a fuller sounding experience than a single performer with just an acoustic guitar. Within one song, you will hear singing, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboard, bass guitar, and drums (and Sean's hourly rate is much more affordable than a comparable trio, quartet, or quintet). Sean can play a selection of covers and originals.
