MI Audio – New sounds for ‘Under The Sun 2014’

MIAudio_logo_WhiteFor year now, one of my main tones in my live rig has been an MI Audio ‘Crunch Box’.

It’s the closest I could get  to my Bogner Shiva dirty channel, with a pedal.
When I couldn’t use my Shiva (Fly dates etc.) I would use this pedal, and I was always blown away 🙂

Recently, my good friend Phil Traina, also known as ‘The Gear Concierge’, introduced me to Dave at MI Audio
and from there on Dave and I talked about gear, gear and more gear.
I told him I was looking for some new tones for my Summer tour and he was all about it!

So now, I’m happy to say that the sounds you’ll be hearing me play this summer on the Smash Mouth show, will be MI Audio.
I can’t wait to get out there and BLAST some stages, with our sound guys’ approval of course 😉

Hit me up any time if you have questions about gear, tones, guitar, pedals and effects.
I love talking about that $h!t.
As usual, you can find me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or even my email

MI Audio #1

Eastman Acoustics – On board!

Eastman_Guitars_logo White20140325_152745Yes!

As some of you have seen before on my instagram, I was rockin’ an Eastman AC522CE a few weeks ago.

I discovered them this year at NAMM and was blown away by some of their work.
I recently went to the factory in Pomona where they set up a few guitars for me to try out from the models I selected.

I’d like to thank Tim Nelson, Ari Baron & Mark Herring of “Eastman Guitars” for helping me find these beauties (AC522CE, E10SS & an EU3-T Uke) and taking me under their wing.

I’m looking forward to many years of working with them and their incredible instruments (They also make Banjos, Mandolins and more).

See you all on out there on the road, or hit me up on twitter @SeanHmusic

Shows and #UnderTheSunTour2014

Wow…it’s been a busy few months and it looks like it’s gonna get even busier soon enough…if ya know what I mean 😉

We had a few great shows this last weekend.
Got to perform for a wonderful and charitable crowd in San Diego. They were all there to donate
their time and money to “Augies Quest” a wonderful organization trying to find a cure for ALS disease.
Everyone was very nice and we all partied after the show 🙂
The day after that, we performed at a festival in Sulphur, LA.
What can I say…we got treated SOOOO well and everyone had such a good time during the show…even with the rain 🙂
I’ll be adding some the pics with the fans on my Fan Pics Page. Go look for yourself and tag away.

As I mentioned to a few people, the “Under The Sun” Tour (#UnderTheSunTour2014) is almost all finalized
and we’re looking at about 8 weeks of ROOOOCK! It’s gonna be a blast.
I’ll be putting up the dates as soon as I get permission to.
Looking forward to coming to a city near you.

Hit me up on my FB or Twitter  and let me know when you’ll be coming.
I’d love to meet all of you…or as many as I can…so hit me up.

Have a great week.





Digitech’s artist of the week!

Thanks to Digitech and Tom Cram for supporting me all along and for making some AWESOME freakin’ pedals.
And I gotta show some love to my boy Mark Doyle who shot this amazing picture at our last NYC show.

If you’ve never tried this pedal , I urge you to.
It’s got SO many options.
Let’s just say it IS Tom Morello’s (Rage Against The Machine) main effect 🙂
Enough said right?

Have a great weekend everyone.

A creative February

February is turning out to be a GREAT month for writing some new material.
I’m very lucky to be writing again with my great friend and awesome Nashville Based singer Shannon McArthur.
We are recording a really cool and vibey Folk album this month.
I’m also recording a some rockin’ Garage Rock songs…always trying to keep busy 🙂
Hopefully you’ll be hearing them on TV soon enough.

Go check out my boy Shannon on his website.
Here are some songs of his from back in the day.

Vegas show and back to NAMM

Damn! What a great crowd in Vegas. Packed the place and rocked them out!
Band sounded great. I was trying my new stereo rig situation which sounded awesome (well, I thought so).

Had an amazing time hanging with Roy Kariok  (Toni Braxton) and Hanan Rubinstein (Alicia Keys, Ellie Goulding) at NAMM.
Those guys are SICK!
And guess what…I’ll be back tomorrow (Sunday) for some more gear checking and picture taking.

Representing at NAMM – See you there!

Shabat Sean Banner 4 PrintShabatSeanBanner4Print_downsizedGood day everyone 🙂

For those of you who don’t know what NAMM is, it’s the National Association of Music Merchants in the US. It’s a Semiannual event. One of which is held here in Orange County.
So, if you find yourself at the convention center in Anaheim, CA this weekend, please come say hi.
I’ll be running around all over, meeting people and talking to the wonderful companies who hook me up, but if you wanna find me, you’ll most likely do so at the “Shabat Guitars” booth (Booth #1278 Hall E).

I’m looking forward to seeing all the new gear that’s gonna be coming out this year AND meeting a bunch of you guys.
After all, I gotta gear up for “Under The Sun Tour 2014”. 😉

See ya this weekend.


Happy new year everyone 🙂

2013 was an incredible year with a lot of traveling and a lot of success in the TV/Film music arena.
I’d like to thank Bogner, Digitech, Dunlop, LSL Instruments, Mesa Boogie & Shabat Guitars for helping me
make great music with their amazing gear!!!
It’ll be great to see them all at NAMM in a few weeks.

Here’s hoping that 2014 starts off with a bang and continues last years’ success. I’m looking forward to meeting all the new fans, playing with some amazing musicians and making some new great friends on the road and in the studio!

Happy 2014 to everyone!!!


Happy New Year 2014

New Vid and Summer Tour talks…

Camelback HikingHi everybody.

So, we had a nice long weekend in Arizona a few days ago.
Got a chance to catch up with old friends over a nice hike at ‘Camelback‘ and also
got a chance to play with my boys Kelley james and Chris Jagich at W Hotel in Scottsdale on Friday night.
All in all it was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to get to Alaska for our next shows.
Oh, you can check out the Latest Video (on my home page) which I got from this weekend’s show. It’s called Getaway Car. Oldie but goodie from Smash Mouth.

In regards to the 2014 Summer Tour, I don’t wanna give anything away, but everything is almost in place.
Soon enough we will know the lineup. Whether or not I’ll be able to tell you is another story 😉
Follow me and we’ll find out together.

Have a great week
