https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/seandynamite/sean-neil-first-solo-album-from-unknown In 2005, after 10 years of playing/touring/writing/recording with my band Dynamite Boy, I decided to hang up my Les Paul and start a career and family. I needed a break from the business side of the music industry and the nomadic lifestyle that comes with it. After a couple years I began writing again, without the comfort of my bandmates and the familiar style of music that I'd been playing for a decade. What started as a small songwriting group online blossomed into an idea that I wanted to record these songs in a proper way, but more naturally, without the flash and $$$ of a big studio and such. About 5 years ago I migrated from Austin to Seattle with my job, and here I've rediscovered the passion that once drove me to spend upwards of 6 months out of the year sleeping on floors and driving thousands of miles for one thing: music. I've surrounded myself with incredibly heartfelt songwriters and a supportive scene like no other - people genuinely looking for the heart in the music that we play. Sprinkle in some pretty rough years on top of that for me, and BOOM! Now we have MUSIC. Thanks for watching it and thanks for helping me by funding the project!
