With a music style that has been compared to Ben Harper and Paul Weller, Seßn released his debut album entitled Loosely Based On A True Story in Ireland in April 2004.
Since then Sean has been bringing his blend of upbeat acoustic rock to audiences across the country.
Seßn has scored innumerable tour support slots with major artists.
Tracy Chapman asked Seßn to open for her in Belfast. Following his performance that night, she invited him to support her on her three Dublin shows at the Olympia.
Ladsysmith Black Mambazo founder and lead man Joseph Shabalala blessed Seßn before the first of the four gigs he supported them on and then invited Seßn to join them on stage for some Zulu warrior dancing!
The Hot House Flowers asked Seßn on-stage to perform on DonÆt Go. During SeßnÆs support slots, Liam joined in on-stage to play bodhran and sing backing vocals on one of SeßnÆs tracks.
Seßn has also guested with Diana Krall, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Huey Lewis and the News and the legendary Bo Diddley, who bragged to Seßn that he was the original rap star and that he had been playing rock and roll long before Elvis. His advice to Seßn was to keep on doing what he was doing and most of all to continue to be himself!
Hailing from Donegal, Seßn and a band of musicians got together with producer Dave Molloy in 2003, to create the album Loosely Based On A True Story. The other members of the band are Satya Darcy on drums, Farid Basir on electric guitar, Darren Bowler on bass and Esther Kjaer Nielsen on percussion and backing vocals.
Seßn has also made musical contributions to two films: Bang Bang a murder mystery set in the west of Ireland and Eve a short film on Christmas through the eyes of a child by Declan Hannigan.
