After appearances at The Long Road Festival and tours in the UK supporting Ashley McBryde and Ashley Monroe, Sean McConnell came back to the UK as a headline artist in his own right in February 2020.

Although he performs in the modern folk realm, he’s got one foot in the country world too, having co-written Brett Young’s Mercy and Little Big Town’s The Daughters. He’s also written for Meat Loaf, Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Scotty McCreery, Brothers Osborne, Christina Aguilera and the TV show Nashville.

The 34 year old has plenty of pedigree to support that back catalogue. He wrote his first song aged 10 and released his first album aged 15.

That means he has 13 albums worth of material to choose from when setting his setlists, including the title track to his latest record, Secondhand Smoke.
