Band to Join.


Sean O'Brien is a London based piano accordionist and pianist with over 15 years experience as a performer and recording artist. On accordion, Sean specialises in many varieties of folk music, with a particular focus on the Celtic genre, as well as cinematic scores, pop, latin funk, rock and blues. In addition, Sean is an accomplished arranger, composer and producer, having worked with everything from musical theatre scores to psychedelic trance productions.

Currently, Sean is one of the world's leading exponents of Irish Dance Music, performing regularly at Irish Dance feisanna across North America, Europe and Australasia. Within the Irish Dance field he has toured with stage show 'Irish Celtic' as well as the grammy award winning production 'Riverdance'. Sean currently has a number of Irish Dance albums selling worldwide.

In recent years, Sean has toured and recorded with numerous artists, including folk pop act '6 Day Riot' and latin funk 8 piece 'Ballalouda'. He is at present the accordionist and pianist for one of London's most delectably sensuous pop outfits, 'Esther Dee & The Carousel'.

Sean has composed music featured in Broadway production 'Noctu', as well as stage show 'Irish Celtic'. Other of his compositions have been recorded by bands such as award winning contemporary folk group 'Kayna'.

Originally from Brisbane, Australia, Sean now resides in North London where he enjoys an ever emergent love for gardening, a straight up, fully realised, somewhat addictive love for the amazing coffee sold in the cafe around the corner and the ever growing community of wisdom and empathy in which he feels humbled to find himself, made possible only by the friendly folk he has the honour to be co-creating it with.

Contact Sean today and find out how he can help further the process of bringing your current musical endeavour to life.
