A Brooklyn native by way of Atlanta, Sean Waterman has found his niche as the southern-based singer/songwriter with a sophomore EP to be released in August and a three-month tour starting this June.
His initial introduction to music was a little on the bitter side, as his mother wouldn’t let him quit his guitar lessons at age nine. Luckily, a relationship formed and by the age of seventeen Waterman began writing songs and performing at open mic nights while attending The Citadel in South Carolina. Instead of the usual studying, he found it much more useful to spend his nights writing and performing at bars around Charleston. Although he spent many years working on his music, it wasn’t until he moved to Atlanta that an album began to take shape.
While based in Atlanta, Waterman found time to record his debut EP, Locomotive Hearts (2010). This release gained attention from Internet radio hosts and indie filmmakers, alike. His most recent project, Dividing Lines EP, will be available August 15th from his own record label, Waterman Records and Phonograph. With a little help from Eddie White and Nat Mundy, Waterman was able to produce this acoustic album himself at the Awendaw Green Studios in Awendaw, South Carolina.
Waterman has spent the last two years focusing on songwriting and recording, but his heart holds closest to performing live, because, “there’s something about the energy from the crowd that never leaves you.” This summer, the singer/songwriter will be traveling across the South on a three-month tour in support of his upcoming release. Beginning in Atlanta, Sean Waterman can be found playing shows from Miami to Nashville. Also, look out for his debut LP anticipating release in the upcoming year.
