*** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ***
OLIVER SEAN LAUNCHES EAST COAST TOUR WITH NEW SINGLE
"All I Remember" Brings Platinum-Selling International Artist to the U.S.
Aug. 11, 2012 – Today, internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Oliver Sean released his latest single "All I Remember" on radio stations worldwide and online. The new song features Sean's distinctive style of percussive rock laced with heavy licks and earnest lyrics. Coming on the heels of the platinum selling single "So Good," this latest track also sets the stage for Sean's first U.S. tour beginning Sept. 15.
"All I Remember" combines Oliver Sean's unique voice with a blended style of rock, driven by his rich heritage. Sean attributes his cultural legacy to time spent in Goa (India), Dubai and London, and the music he heard in those diverse cities. He also is a big fan of American music, and many of his songs carry a hint of down-home strum, which should appeal to U.S. audiences.
Over the last ten years, Sean has ascended from local performer in Goa to international rock phenom, playing tours across Europe, Asia and the Middle East, including stops in London, Dubai and other major cities. His debut album "I Like It" (2002) was nominated for AV Max International Album of the Year along with albums by John Mayer, Third Eye Blind, Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams. Oliver Sean's single "So Good" reached the No. 2 spot on International Charts (Asia/Middle East) earlier this year, and his single "Movies" reached the Top 10 charts of Vh1's International channel, placing Sean alongside artists such as Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Pitbull. In June, he received his own feature spot on Vh1 Specials, a program that highlights prominent and upcoming artists. His rise led Sun magazine to label Oliver Sean "Independent music's hottest international offering."
Sean hopes to build on his international prestige with his first U.S. tour, which includes shows in the tri-state area and is part of a larger international tour that includes dates in Europe, Australia, Asia and the Middle East. Among U.S. stops is a Sept. 26 radio interview and live acoustic performance on WRCN 103.9 FM's "Morning Drive Show" in New York. The following evening, Oliver Sean will play a concert at the renowned Cafe Wha? (115 Macdougal St., NY), which claims to have launched the careers of legendary artists such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen and Joni Mitchell. Additional shows and festivals in the U.S. and Canada are planned for 2013.
Several qualities of Oliver Sean's success that Americans will appreciate are his hard work, independent spirit and varied interests. The only child of a single mother, Sean acknowledges her as the source of his work ethic. "It's because of her that I got to where I am," he said. "She showed me it's possible to overcome any difficulty and do what matters most to you." The singer dedicated "Alone," the third single off his album So Good, to his mother because of its message about the strength and perseverance of single mothers. The music video for "Alone" has appeared on Vh1's Hit Factory and elsewhere.
In addition to writing and composing all of his own music, Sean has produced and directed music videos for himself and other international artists. In 1998, at a young age he created his own label, W.O.A. International, to promote fresh and established international musicians like himself. Twelve years later, W.O.A International is one of the largest Indie record labels in Asia and the Middle East that help promote independent talent. Sean's film endeavors include a soundtrack for a popular international film, and he is currently working on a documentary about the importance of protecting endangered tigers, based on the book Once Upon a Time by Wanda Alvares. The singer-songwriter also has an MBA from American University in Dubai.
"All I Remember" can be heard starting today on radio stations around the world. It also is available on iTunes and as a special download for members of the Oliver Sean Fan Club.
