Relatively unknown to mainstream success, singer/songwriter, Sean McConell has been writing and recording music for over 10 years. McConnell’s songs have been covered by everyone from American Idol contestant, Jason Castro to country superstar, Tim McGraw and he has exploded in the Texas music scene. Sean McConnell delivers his most accessible and strongest album to date with Saints, Thieves, & Liars which blends his Americana/R & B sound with introspective lyrics alongside a soulful vocal rang. McConnell’s sound is very unique in that it pulls from soul, country, folk, and R & B but it his beautiful lyrics and touching songs that separate him from most mainstream music out there right now.
McConnell brings his Motown influence on "Maybe You Can Love Me Anyway "which gives him a chance to stretch those amazing pipes. More rock tinged tunes such as the spiritually fueled "Saints Heart in a Sinner’s Skin" and the Springsteen rocker, "Caroline" proves McConnell is not all folk singer, as he can turn it up to 11 when he wants. Standout tracks to me are the rootsy Whiskeytown inspired, "A Prayer You Can Borrow," and the hope inspiring, "Somewhere Beautiful" that showcase his melody driven rock while never sacrificing his roots. Fans of Americana, alternative country, and folk music and artists such as Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, and Martin Sexton will love Saints, Thieves, & Liars.
