Fethard-On-Sea, County Wexford
Seán McComish is a young musician and songwriter, hailing from Fethard-On-Sea, Co. Wexford, Ireland. Surrounded by music and a musical family his entire life, it wasn't long before Seán picked up the guitar. Upon hearing the album 'Music And Me' by Michael Jackson, Seán knew from a ridiculously early age what he wanted to do with his life...
Play Music. Write Songs.
Citing influences from Bruno Mars to Elvis, 2015 marked the start of Seán as a solo artist with the release of his debut E.P ‘The First Step’. He began to perform nationwide that year also, jumping right in at the deep end, with his 1st and 2nd gigs both being played in the prestigious venues of Whelan’s and The Ruby Sessions. The successful release of his debut E.P allowed him the opportunity to support acts such as Calum Scott, Nathan Carter and Hometown. This was soon followed with shows alongside the likes of Gavin James, The Academic and The Strypes, and also features on websites such as JOE.ie and HER.ie. He ended 2016 by being involved in the recording of a charity single in aid of Pieta House alongside artists such as Mary Byrne and Ryan O'Shaughnessy. The single went to Number One in the iTunes chart, with a live RTE One performance soon after.
Sean kicked off 2017 with a string of shows in Austria, followed by extensive touring across Ireland. After picking up an endorsement from throat care specialists Vocalzone, the latter half of 2017 was spent shifting focus to writing new material and developing his live show. To further expand his live sound, Sean joined forces with drummer Darren Bradley, to create a more energetic and explosive live experience. From playing 2 sets across 2 stages at Electric Picnic 2018 (with a line-up that boasted Picture This, Kendrick Lamar, George Ezra and The Prodigy to name a few), supporting ‘Dancing with the Stars’ winner Jake Carter, to opening for Irish rock legends Aslan on multiple dates of their 2019 tour, Seán showed no signs of slowing down with the release of ‘Only One’. The release of the catchy pop tune coincided with Seán’s support slot with Wild Youth at Wexford Spiegeltent Festival. To date, ‘Only One’ has received extensive national radio coverage and Seán was featured as Beat 102-103’s Artist of the Week.
Seán is an artist who is most definitely on the rise having honed his craft on the Dublin live scene incorporating loops, drums and catchy tunes into a truly exuberant live act.
