Sean Oliu is a prolific young singer, songwriter and musician from Southern California. Sean has been intertwining country with the influences of Blues, and early Rock n’ Roll to form his own unique musical style. He was introduced to classic country music as young boy by his papa. They spent hours together working on cars and listening to the likes of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Charley Pride, Loretta Lynn, George Strait and many more.
Sean recently returned from Nashville where he had the honor to perform at the legendary Ryman Auditorium, the Mother Church of Country Music, where he received a standing ovation. His talents have opened the door to write and record with some of country music’s leading artists. Sean is currently partnering with Grammy Award winning producer and songwriter Darrell Brown and looks forward to sharing his new music.
