A man of many hats. Old enough to know better, but foolish enough not to care. Playing acoustic Americana music in and around New England. Now booking live solo and full band shows throughout New England. To request a booking, please contact Sean by email.
Sean Ryder brings his self-reliant outlook and strong appetite for learning to his approach to music. Inspired by transcendentalism, Sean writes songs that have been described as "genre-crossing", "deep and overflowing", and "desolate and beautiful". By exploring themes such as nature, introspection, and human behavior, he invites his audience to experience complex emotions and find compassion within themselves. Sean's songs rely on simple stripped-down acoustic arrangements, featuring tenor guitars, ukuleles, mandolins, and acoustic guitars, highlighting the songs' lyrical content.
