Sean Needham at the Bluestack Jam!

Sean was at the Bluestack Jam and it sounds like it went well, per this message from the Bluestacks Facebook Group:

Throughout the past few years Donegal singer songwriter Seán Needham has been bringing his blend of 'upbeat acoustic rock' to audiences across Denmark and Ireland . His music style been compared to Van Morrison and Jack Johnson. Seán will launch his second album 'Time is a Friend' in Whelans of Dublin on Friday 14th of August 2009 but the exclusive Bluestacks Jam Club prelaunch met all expectations and once again raised the bar of what this is all about. Along with his wife Ester and the now very well established ''Bluestacks Backers'' house band, he so suprised his fans new and old that all they wanted was copies of his new Album which he generesly signed.

Seán Needham recorded 'Time is a Friend' in Denmark where he now lives, with the help of producer Julian Falck of Mofus.

Seán released his first album entitled 'Loosely Based on A True Story' in Ireland in 2004. The single 'Hey Juliet' was play-listed on nation and regional radio stations across Ireland and earned him much publicity and support slots with major artists including, Tracy Chapman, Diana Krall, and The Divind Comedy.

The Independent
"His song writing really stands out. He never sacrifices melody on the altar of earnestness and what a gift for melody he has."


Loosely Based On A True amenable, slightly confessional,'s a record that infiltrates you when you least expect it. Stylistically, Needham is different...replacing whingeing indignation with a sense of clarity and reason'


'Sean Needham has got a powerful voice and his band play to a highly polished degree of sophistication'


'Uptempo acoustic rock is the main flavour of the music...Lyrically there is a lot of spirituality to his songs...Needham is at his best when he sits down to tell a story...all told, it's an impressive debut'
