Artist Of The Week

Growing up in California, splitting his time between Venice and Sacramento, Sean Kelly was influenced by SoCal Reggae greats Sublime, The Expendables, Dirty Heads, Slightly Stoopid and Rebelution as much as early rap icons like Slick Rick, Big L, Mac Dre and E-40. As a youngster, all he wanted to do was create and perform his own music. Drawing inspiration from the singing styles of Michael Jackson, Prince and Otis Redding, Sean came up with his own unique style of music that incorporates the California surf and beach sound. The debut single, “Hands In The Sky,” has created a bond with the warm sun and the motion of the ocean, providing the perfect summer-like backdrop whilst taking musical inspirations from Jack Johnson, John Mayer and Vance Joy. There is a long list of goals that this young artist and pro surfer wants to accomplish, with standards set as high as the Cali sun, the sky is truly the limit for Sean Kelly.
