The EP contains a power-packed punch of fresh, new material that will fit perfectly into the collection of any fan of today’s new rock music. Bertrand states of the new release, “Snow Patrol meets Kings Of Leon……the best recorded version of Sean McCarthy to date.”
Sean’s prior CD entitled “July” is a collection of three songs highlighting this artist’s versatility. The CD’s co-producer, Todd Bowie, has worked with The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and most recently, Beck, among many other artists.
Exciting, alternative/pop/rock guitar driven song about independence, moving on and self-reliance. Would work in film/tv relationship-ending scenes, quitting a job, leaving town, going forward, driving down the highway, this is me, smile on my face, Male Vocals, Pop Music, Power Pop
This song is about being beside and looking at someone close to you, and in that moment, realizing that they are your soul-mate and you are willing to give yourself entirely to them until the end of your days. Great for TV or film scene w/couple in love or scene where "realization of love" occurs. Male Vocals, Pop Music, Power Pop
A guitar driven, power-pop song about life's lessons and how everyone needs a shoulder from time to time. Would work well in film/tv scenes including loss of loved one (s), devastation, hurting. Chorus would be great for moments displaying a community/group/family coming together after loss, Male Vocals, Pop Music, Power Pop
A song about an intense love, betrayal and yearning filled with haunting piano & guitar hooks that slowly builds up to a wide-open, anthemic climax. Great in film/tv scenes of hard-fought, winning love, passionate reunions, family/love reuniting, Male Vocals, Dangerous Music, Edgy Music
Catchy, laid back and moving, this track combines drums, bass and simple piano hooks and soon evolves to include fresh, flowing strings. Would work well in film/television scenes of planning, coming together and striving toward success. Also great for scenes of being in love, happy together. Instrumental, Dramatic Music, Ethereal Music
A cool, hip, bluesy track with a snappy rhythm section, dirty guitar, creative drums fills and Hammond B3 organ hooks. Would work well in TV/Film/Commercial scenes involving money, swagger, confidence, seductive looks/walks. Instrumental, Action Music, Action Theme RnB Retro Kitsch
A beautiful, somber blend of strings highlighted by finger-picked acoustic guitars and simple piano hooks. Would work well in scenes of intimacy, getting closer, reflection, wondering. Instrumental, Dramatic Music, Calm Mellow Music
Fresh, driving & upbeat with resounding guitar hooks. The lyrical content of this song is based on losing a loved one and reflecting upon it. Would work well in a film/tv scene of loss & reflection, driving down highway. Male Vocals, Pop Music, Power Pop
Dramatic, fresh, driving drums, bass and electric guitar are surrounded by orchestral hits, smooth piano and string hooks. An ending of uncertainty. Would work well in action, open range, chase and anticipation scenes. Instrumental, Action Music, Action Adventure Symphonic Rock
