"Bands that deliver tasty songs in a studio setting or can wow a crowd in a live setting are a dime a dozen. More rare is the band that can do both. Sean Healen and his musicians not only delivered the finest local album of the year, filled to the brim with mature songwriting, but I've also seen them deliver a blazing set in front o bar, larger club and arena sized crowds that made friends of everyone present. His is a talent to be reckoned with and great things lie ahead for this talented musician."
