With noted influences like the Allman Brothers, Zakk Wylde, Alice in Chains and Hank Williams Jr., his style is a unique blend of blues, rock and country.
Having been writing and performing for the last 20 years, Sean has had the privilege to share the stage with such artists as: L.A. Guns, Rival Sons, Chis Stapleton and Tyler Childers”. See: www.seanwhiting.com for his recent album release and look for him on Facebook.
