BluesClub XXL presents Sean Webster Band

Sun 16 November 2014 - 15:30

Sean Webster is an inspiring guitar vocalist with a great reputation on the British blues and rock scene. The band has seen members come and go since its creation back in 2003 however Sean's focus has stayed the same and he continues to do what he does best......write music.
2004 was a big year for Sean, as he released the debut album “Long Time Coming”. This put Sean in line for his first recording contract, and showcased his fine guitar playing, which combines a great number of influences including Albert Collins, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Gary Moore and SRV to name a few. His vocal style is of a rich, sexy tone with a low end rumble drawing comparisons with Joe Cocker, Bryan Adams and Jonny Lang.
Britain’s leading blues magazine “Blues Matters!” has described the debut album as “A real gem”, concluding that Sean was:

“…. set for big stages with superb guitar work…. They'll soon be bursting out of the Nottingham area now Sean has got his writing shoes on.”

2005 saw the band perform many live dates around the U.K. including main stage performances at, Burnley Festival, Maryport Festival the prestigious Great British R&B Festival in Colne in August with organisers quoting, “Sean is a new legend in the making. He has rich powerful vocals and searing guitar licks. Like so many, he has been working hard for years but these are Sean Webster’s years, and he is in his ascendancy.”

Sean's second cd release entitled, “If Only” pushed the boundaries of the blues music, with Sean reaching out to a wider and (often) younger audience. “If Only” came to the attention of Tony Edser, editor of “Where's Eric!” the official Eric Clapton magazine who decided to feature Sean as The “One to watch”. Having personally placed a copy of the cd in Eric's hands, it was rumoured that Sean was inline for supporting Eric on that years tour. Unfortunately Sean was pipped at the post by the legendary Robert Cray!!!
