Sean O'Neill


Australian born, London residing musician Sean O’Neill is a man of many talents, instrumentally to be precise. The singer/songwriter plays the guitar, piano, and also the hammond organ. He has been compared to artists such as Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, Sufjan Stevens, Justin Vernon, and Ásgeir, due to his heartfelt vocals backed by strummed guitar & an eclectic mix of sounds. Influenced by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, O'Neill is following on from his 2012 EP, readying a debut album which he wrote in his Stoke Newington flat in London.
"The luscious atmospheric soundscape creates the perfect harmony with the subtle finger picking and O’Neill’s understated vocals." 
- The Music Ninja

Inspired by a girl he met on the London Tube, 'Vienna', is a taste of what is to come. 'Vienna' showcases an atmospheric sound that creates a captivating musical landscape, taking listeners out of their own world and into his. O'Neill's heartfelt vocals deliver emotion over the instrumentals that are both cinematic and emotive in their own right.
 “Sean O’Neill has developed into one of the most gripping musicians in Perth”
