Sean grew up at a time and place in a Australia where being Aboriginal wasn’t something you advertised. That usually warranted unwanted attention. Although having said that, his deep love and affinity for the traditions of his people were instilled by a loving mother and his maternal relatives and have held him in good stead ever since. Spending time with his grandmother’s family taught him the beauty, wisdom and dignity of his cultural heritage that has led Sean to many interesting experiences, in many wonderful places, with many beautiful people. Sean has accompanied many artists from a wide range of genres at a variety of venues. From performances with Australia’s premier jazz musician James Morrison at the Sydney Opera House; playing alongside Charlie McMahon; performances with well known Aboriginal musician Frank Yamma at Fox Studios in Sydney; playing with Djs at night clubs; performances at Kirribilli House for the Governor General of Australia (2011 and 2010); didjeridoo
