"Ten Times Better Than You" isn't what you'd call
traditional country.. more of a folk/rock or Americana sound very similar to Gordon
Lightfoot ("Edmund Fitzgerald", "If You Could Read My Mind") and
coming from me, that's a high compliment cuz I'm a great fan of Gordon's. Actually, Sean's
song is fairly Universal and could fit into many categories if one wanted to nit-pick
about it. As for me, I just love the song.. it's lyrics, the music, presentation and
vocals and I'm presenting to all who visit MKOC in hopes of gaining fans and exposure for
Here's some background on Sean:
He hails from Anchorage, Alaska where he's quite the outdoorsman who loves to fish.. and
wait till you see some of the fish he's caught! Won't find nothin' like that in the Ohio
or Mississippi Rivers! As of Dec. 7th, 2006 Sean turned 32 years old and spends at least 5
days a week "ducking" from enemy fire.
Sean is stationed in FOB ISKAN Iraq, He's a Platoon Sergeant
in an Airborne Unit out of Alaska 4/25 BDE. He was a Drill Sergeant and has been dealing
with soldiers for going on 14 years. He has 38 men in his platoon. Sean is divorced but
says, "I have a beautiful daughter named Makenzee Rose 'song probably gave that
Sean said, "I will not be home for at least six more
months and have been in Iraq for 2 already and recorded the song the day before I left for
Iraq, "Dumb Luck". I have five more songs that will be released when I go back
to Alaska and then we will see how things go from there." For the record, I told Sean
he should write a song to go with his subject header, "Stuck In Iraq"...
what do you think? Either way, I expect to hear great things from Sean, no matter what the
DJ's and radio execs, I appeal to your good taste and kind
hearts to help Sean's dream come true. Let's not let him just be "Stuck in Iraq"
... let's get the him on the air and allow the fans to be "Stuck on Sean"!
On to the music!
