MTV EMA Nominee Oliver Sean is an International singer, songwriter who thrived in the Goa, Dubai and the UK cultures as they acted as the backdrop to his youth, and the inspiration for his music. His discography with W.O.A. Records was birthed in 1999 with his single There She Is Again.
Oliver Sean's media clippings have formed a career of their own. Since his career launched in his teens, Sean's press clippings exceed several hundred features, snippets, and reviews in significant print and broadcast mediums. His brand of music is known for its pop influence with contemporary undertones. AVMax nominated Sean’s debut album for ‘International Album of the Year’ in 2003 along with albums by John Mayer, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Third Eye Blind.
Oliver Sean's eclectic global music style is the trademark for his brand, and is as exotic as his mixed Portuguese, Italian and Goan Lineage.
A self-taught musician, Oliver Sean is a multi instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer. However, it is his distinctive percussive guitar style, which is his footprint on the music industry. Unlike the package products of today's trendy music culture, Sean writes and composes all of his music. His distinctive voice combined with his high energy performance is just one of his many assets defining him as a pillar in the music community and led International publication ‘The Sun’ to call him ‘The Hottest International Offering from the shores of Goa’. He is a member of the Recording Academy and a Voting Member for the prestigious Grammy Awards. He has been selected by the Recording Academy twice in a row for the Grammy Nomination List for the 54th and 55th Grammy Awards.
Sean is also involved with writing music for the French Government, producing music for other artists, and working on various film projects as a composer and a filmmaker. He has also composed the Soundtrack for a popular International film released earlier this year and is currently working on a documentary about the urgency to protect Tiger's, based on the soon to be published book 'Once upon a time' by Wanda Alvares.
Sean's last album 'So Good' (2011) has had several hits including a Vh1 Top 10 spot, No. 2 on an International chart listing, Featured album spot at the Virgin Megastores in Dubai, Grammy nomination consideration in 9 categories, a Vh1 Specials feature and recently the MTV Europe Music Awards 2012 nomination in the BEST WORLDWIDE ACT category.
