CD Review:

Sean Costello died on April 15th, 2008. I received his CD the previous month in March. He never read this review.

Because of the involved manner in which I review music, and the amount of time I spend listening to an artist to really "get" what they are about, I inevitably develop a connection to them. It's this connection that I established with Sean - through his music - that I commiserate with his loved ones and his fans.

He was a brilliant musician and a gifted guitarist with an arresting and distinctive vocal talent that reeked of sincerity and raw emotion. He also had a knack for writing lyrics that told stories which would capture your interest and draw you into his artistry. He's one of the few artists that I've reviewed this year (or ever) that sounded like a "star" upon first listen. He was working hard to lead the charge of a new generation of "commercial" blues artists, but apparently, there were other plans or him...

Sean's last (and 4th CD) is available now. Proceeds will be directed to his family.
