The current single from the upcoming artist Sean Kennedy will give you a whole range of emotions. ‘Let It Go’ is simply a rollercoaster of emotions and the song fused with amazing sound and deep lyrics will get you accompany Sean in his trip through love, loss and longing that he must experience.

Through devastating vocals and the picturesque music, “Let It Go” becomes a knitted tapestry of mouthful emotion as Sean tells his story over the track. On the other hand, he ventured out with KRYNE, the great Kazakhstani music producer, to include some slick synth-pop vibes, fusing the sound on a new level in a very thrilling way.

What was more interesting, though, was being able to ask Sean questions to get behind the scenes details as well as how the whole thing came to life. He kept it as real as it could get, working with things that he sees out there or things he think about.

Looking back on earlier days when he wrote songs, then progressing to where he is now, being a rising star, the drive for telling a story behind each word is very evident. He is the guy who has been through rough patches.  With all the challenges of her job, he never quits.  He is the dude with such a high level of determination.

Even though the difficulties he has faced are real, Sean possesses such an inspiring approach which by using his music expresses the values of connection and hope his fans. He’s dying to drop his next hit in the studio and then letting the listeners be part of his journey.

As for “Let It Go,” let’s get your body moving while the soul stirring sound powers the raw creativity and vulnerability that defines him. He (meaning the artist) places his emotions right in the middle of his chest and asks you to experience it with him. Don’t sleep!

What is your stage name?

My name is Sean Kennedy.

Is there a story behind your stage name?
Sean Kennedy is my real name, and I also share it with my Dad. I never really questioned going by anything else. My music is very personal, and I think releasing music under my actual name goes with that.

Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in every facet of my life. My music is my emotional outlet, and I find inspiration within all of the emotions I experience.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
I moved schools at a young age, and right around that time I started writing music. It was there at a time when no one else really was.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
My mom’s such a talented artist but the only other person in my family who has any musical background is my grandma.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
I started recording my music seriously around 2016-2017. I would play tracks for my friends and even complied two demo albums. By the time I got to high school, I just had so much music I was dying to share with a larger audience, so I began releasing it.

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
My elementary school music teacher taught me the basic structure of a song when I was 9. From there, I picked up guitar and piano on my own, and I eventually taught myself how to record, too.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
My first real concert was Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour. I think that set the bar pretty high for me.

How could you describe your music?
I would describe it as internal manifestations of past experiences and desires.

Describe your creative process.
I typically start out with one line of a song or melody. Then, I’ll sit down with a guitar or at my piano and I’ll try to build it out from there. I use a lot of voice notes when I’m writing. For this song, I wrote it at my piano and then I recorded a really rough demo.

I knew I wanted this song to be very different from anything I’d done before, so I shopped it around to a bunch of producers. I met KRYNE, and the two of us were able to make something that I’m really really proud of.

I knew I wanted this song to be very different from anything I’d done before, so I shopped it around to a bunch of producers.

What is your main inspiration?
Each of my albums have had some specific inspirations. My first album was really inspired by Shawn Mendes and early Taylor Swift and my third album’s big influence was Lana Del Rey’s Born to Die. One of my big inspirations on this track was Lorde’s Melodrama. I really wanted those intricate drums that are used within the album.

What musician do you admire most and why?
I will always admire Lana Del Rey. Her ability to create a brand new lane of music and the way she ties in aesthetics to music is like no other.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
My early music was crafted around the limited abilities I had. I played guitar and piano, so that’s what I used in my music. As I’ve grown, I’ve been able to craft a sound.

Who do you see as your main competitor?
I’m very focused on paving my own way right now. I don’t really see myself as being in competition with others.

What are your interests outside of music?
I love to read and play tennis.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
I’m in college right now as a psychology major and I want to go to law school.

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
My biggest problem has always been casting a wider net towards an audience. I was given a very rare opportunity with my last single, “Forever Us”. The track has 250,000 views on YouTube in less than a year and it opened up some doors for me that I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to otherwise.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
I think artists need to be more fairly compensated for streams. It’s virtually impossible to live off of royalties from songs even if they have millions of streams.

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
My last album felt like it left off on a really unfinished note. I felt like I had to close that chapter of my life before I could start putting out more music.

What are your plans for the coming months?
My label and I are releasing some more songs in the coming months that I’m so excited about. I don’t have plans for an album right now, so it’s very exciting to not feel constrained to making a cohesive project.

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans?
My best friend Giuliana Calandrucci and I put out her debut EP, Curtain Call, in November. We’re starting to do sessions for her first album, which is super exciting. She’s someone who always creatively inspires me, and working with her is always so amazing.

What message would you like to give to your fans?
I hope that my fans can connect to this song and find a piece of themselves within it.
