Album Notes
2007 International Blues Challenge Winners and 2007 Albert King Best Guitarist Award Winner!!!

Columbus Monthly "Best Band in Columbus" 2007


When it comes down to what "is" and what "isn't," Sean Carney's CD "Life of Ease," "is." It's the Best Rhythm & Blues CD release of 2006.

It's like reaching through a porthole in time of original R&B. Grabbing hold of the real-deal music and bringing the "authentic stuff" back through time and space into the new century. This is it.

It happened. The result is "Life of Ease."

It's the most original sounding rhythm and blues release from a younger artist I've heard in many, many years. The talent and love of the real thing shines through in the body & soul of Sean Carney. Exceptional Vocals, Guitar, and tremendous Bandleader too.

Guest artists include Willie Pooch, Joe Weaver, Teeny Tucker, Gene Walker, Phil Berkowitz.

A sincere congratulations and boy howdy! What a CD!
16 tracks of phenomenal defining R&B.

Everyone----needs to get this CD!

In my opinion-----> Best R&B CD of 2006!

“Sean Carney is the artist and he’s as determined as he is talented and as focused as he is sincere… touring behind a rock-solid disc titled Life of Ease.” - The Edmonton Journal (Canada)

A review from the Sept. 14 issue of the Red Onion (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) e-letter.

"Ever had the feeling that you've been in the presence of greatness? That was the way I felt after watching and listening to the SEAN CARNEY BAND perform last weekend. Those who joined us were witness to one of the finest blues
players to hit the Onion, who combined great style and musical talent with a real ability to entertain. I was left thinking that 'this guy is going to be very successful.' The good news is that we expecting to see them in the new year. Consider yourself notified."

“Sean Carney…the city’s best blues guitarist.” – Columbus Alive!

“Carney has quickly been recognized by his peers, including artists like legendary B-3 champ Hank Marr, and the master of (among others) ’40s-style guitar renderings, Duke Robillard.” – Vintage Guitar Magazine

“…Sean Carney’s superb, keening guitar, like a Collins-King amalgam. He is a name to add to the classy end of the list and, I hope, one that will become a regular sight in blues journals.” – Juke Blues Magazine (UK)

“Ace guitarist… Sean Carney’s fat tone has just enough sizzle on top to cut through; he snaps the bass strings, stings in the treble register, and reels off fleet lines with shivery vibrato accents.” – Blues Revue Magazine

“Sean Carney, a great guitarist!” – Charles Brown

“Sean Carney is hot and simmerin’… with a swingin’ execution.” – Big City Blues Magazine

Classy blues CD.
I absolutely enjoyed this CD from the first song, Life of Ease, to the final live cuts. The Sean Carney band is an example of a tight and soulful blues band.

susan witkowski

i searched long and hard for this cd..and man, it is one of the best blues cds o
well produced, tight band...good r&b laced blues. lotta different blues styles- all done with a-#1 class. damn if he doesn't look a teeneie bit (from a distance) of mister ronnie earl. if he works hard enough- maybe he'll have the licks down that mr earl's got.
they gotta play here in bostown!

Roi Geyari

A classic.
I just love the music on this cd... Sean Carney is a fabulous guitar player and singer, he reminds me a lot of Lowell Fulson. Every blues fan is going to love this album.

Kim Kovacs

I heard the song "I Live Alone" on XM Bluesville station and HAD to have the album. I am a big fan of blues music, especially the classic artists like John Lee Hooker, Koko Taylor, chicago blues. I was really impressed with Sean Carney Band and am glad I was able to find their CD at CD Baby

Sean P. Carney

Thank you
My name is Sean Carney, and I am 7. I like to play piano and my harmonica. I recieved this CD today and I like this music called blues. My Dad said that you are a great musician and I like your CD. You look like my dad which is wierd. Anyway, your songs are cool and I like the one called: I know your wig is gone. I look forward to meeting you someday and maybe you can sign my CD. Stay cool. Your blues buddy, Sean Carney.

Jeff Jensen

This album has crazy soul!!!
Sean has soul! This album is really good. A blues must.

Eileen Taylor

Life of East
This is a fantastic CD! It's lowdown blues, with a little rock thrown in, plus just a hint of the jazz genre, which makes it unique to anything I've heard of this quality. I know Sean personally, and can't fail to add that he is a genuinely great person, a friend to all. Thanks, Sean. You indeed live up to the Winner you are.

René Malines

My favourite 2006 Blues CD hands down.
My favourite 2006 Blues CD hands down. Sean Carney knows his blues through and through and plays and sings it like a master despite his young age. His special guests on this are not here for any kind of commercial promo, but out of guenuine friendship and mutual respect. Do yourself a favor, get yourself a copy of Life of Ease... and you'll end up longing for more. Sean Carney is going to be very big, very soon. Be among those who'll then be able to say "I knew him when..."
