Artist Bio

Showalter's music is best described as though Travis Meeks from Days of the New carried a serious Delta Blues influence. It's cool stuff.”

Brian No Funeral

Sean is a singer/songwriter living in Austin, TX. He was born in DC and grew up in Ft. Washington, MD.  Growing up his Dad, Gordan Showalter, played guitar and his older brother, Ricky Showalter, played bass.  Rick is now a pro bassist out in Chicago and often plays with Acid Jazz band Liquid Soul.  They are super awesome if you get a chance, go listen to them! 

Sean was always singing and making up little tunes growing up and was a creative kid who also showed talent in visual art. 

His first professional gigs were at blues jams in the DC area where people always commented on his vocal talent. 

He moved to Austin in 2002 to pursue a music career.  He plays lead guitar too and loves the blues and rock greats such as Hendrix, SRV and Satriani. He's working on getting a blues/rock band together soon.  Currently he does solo acoustic gigs. 

Sean loves to create things, especially music.  He's a talented musician, singer and songwriter and is constantly honing his craft. Speaking of which, he loves to teach Guitar Lessons! Check out his guitar lesson site www.guitarguru.us or send him an email at sean@guitarguru.us if you'd like to set something up for you or someone you love.
