It is always great to meet an artist who is getting his/her start in the music industry at an earlier age. Meet Sean D, only 17 years old, is already accomplishing so much with his music that this publication knew we had to feature him as one of our music spotlights for this week. Sean D has crafted an amazing sound that definitely sets him apart from the average Singer/Songwriter in the music business currently. One of the best parts to this artist’s music is how Sean D is able to capture his audience with his melodic tunes and beautiful lyrics. If you want to learn more about this gifted and talented young man, then read this special spotlight. Enjoy! 

Isaac: Thank you for being a part of our weekly music interview spotlights. Let’s get started. The Indie Music Industry is an amazing beast. Many music critics have stated that Indie Music is on the rise with many new performers being discovered each day. Do you believe that indie music artists can rise to the level of stardom that their major music studio counterparts are able to now?

Sean D: Thank you Isaac and Junior Cave Magazine for selecting me as one of your artist spotlights. What an honor. I think any artist with the passion, dedication, and hard work can make it as far as they want to go in the industry. For me, there is still so much more that I need to learn. I know that my Life has a purpose, has a meaning. I may not see the final picture but I know what puzzle pieces God has revealed. So right now, I am standing on the waters of Faith walking it, living it, and more importantly loving it!

Isaac: What do you feel has been your biggest contribution you have made to Indie Music Industry thus far in your career?

Sean D: My biggest contribution is just bringing my music right now, and making myself available. I look forward to the future as I know the sun will never set and new opportunity will begin to happen. And as new opportunity begins to happen, then giving back will expand further.

Isaac: I am interested to know if you could go back and change anything about your own musical career, what would it be and why?

Sean D: Mid June 2012, I started my musical launch. I don’t know if there has been any time to think about what if anything I would have changed. With my new full length album I am working on currently, there will be changes to the style and its recording. That just goes with working with a new producer and bouncing off ideas. He knows where I want to go with this new project, so it is going to be amazing! But I will keep it as a surprise. I can’t wait for y’all to hear.

Isaac: I am curious to know do you feel that the music industry as a whole is surrounded by an endless pool of undiscovered talents or overcrowded with mediocre performers. 



Sean D: I do believe that there are many undiscovered talents not just in the music industry but in the entertainment industry as a whole. I want to encourage artist to keep pressing forward. If you are passionate about what you do, find places in your community to perform; don’t bury your talent once the first person criticizes you but work on always perfecting your art. We are in the business of continuous learning. Learning what the fans want to hear, see etc. Overcrowded with mediocre performers, No I don’t think so. They do what they love and that is what it is all about. It’s not about making millions. It’s about telling a story of what they have encountered.

Isaac: Who has influence you with their own music performances and why?

Sean D: Who had influenced me with their music performances? No individual or any band has influenced me. There are many great artists out there doing their thing. For me, it is a passion that grew stronger through each year; that I continue to learn upon daily cause it is always changing.

Isaac: Are you currently signed with any of the Indie Music Labels? If not, what are you looking for in any music label that you hope will complement your music?

Sean D: No, I am not signed with any of the Indie Music Labels. I am not signed with any label yet, although, that would be nice (ha). I would want to have a label that wouldn’t hold me back from the message I was trying to portray and being able to agreement together on any project.

Isaac: What do you feel has been one of the biggest challenges for you to bring your music to the masses?

Sean D: One of the biggest challenges for me to bring my music to the masses is probably the promotional side of the business. Since I am just launching my music, and being only 17 still in high school I don’t have much experience on the business side of it. I’m lucky to pass my math class with a D. I know what I am good at and the business side of it all is not one of them. So if you know of anyone good on that end, send them my way! (ha)

Isaac: One of the best attributes for any performer to possess is tenacity (persistence). What is your professional and/or personal drive that has made you continue to make great music over the years?

Sean D: I can’t take the credit. I struggle with ADD and dyslexia, so it would all become jumble/bouncy mess. My personal drive would end up becoming fatigue if I were to do it all on my own and then I would end up failing. So, I ride the same wave as God. He is my fuel, my energizer bunny, my driver. He allows issues to come into my life and has brought people in my paths which is what I have written about on my EP. If it wasn’t for those trials a story would have never been made. So going forward as I continue to walk on this musical journey we all have a chapter book that has been written for each of…share it with me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Isaac: How has living in your current city affected the way you look at the music industry?

Sean D: Living in Atlanta, I don’t really think it has affected anyway I look at music. I love the art of music, and all genres of music. If anything I think living in Atlanta has opened my eyes to the diverse cultures of music.

Isaac: We would love to see a music video from you! Do you currently have one that you can let our readers know about?

Isaac: At the end of the day, if you never reached musically to a certain level of fame and fortune, would you be happy that you made music on your own terms?

Sean D: I am not pursuing fame and fortune. What I am looking forward to on this journey is making music, meeting new people, seeing how I can help them and help my community then I am happy.

Isaac: For those who want to learn more about you and your music, where can fans find you online?
