ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sean Wiggins, a centered and attention-grabbing, blue eyed, soul diva is how she's been described, but there's much more to Wiggins when she takes to the stage or gets in the studio. You will find that her recordings define her inner most feelings at that precise time in her life. As an artist, Wiggins is making waves! A song from Wiggins past, "Jane and the Goats", is currently featured on the critically acclaimed and award winning independent film, "God, Sex, and Apple Pie". In addition, in January 2002, Wiggins song styling will be featured on MTV's hit night drama, "MTV Undressed".

The summer of 2001 was a busy one for Wiggins. While recording her newest CD, "Next Time Around",and supporting her first solo CD, "1000 Steps", she toured the country opening for Sophie B Hawkins and Jill Sobule, while hitting large music festivals such as Chicago's Market Days, which hosts 350,000 people. She also played shows all over Southern California and even hit Atlanta, Georgia. Fall 2001, Wiggins graced the stage of the Houston Women's Festival, hosted a variety of CD release parties, and returned to the Windy City with Linda Moss (harmonica) to play the renowned Hard Rock/Chicago, along with other local Chicago venues.

Wiggins was recently chosen by SBS Records, founded by singer Michelle Malone, to be featured on their first compilation CD, distributed nationally in Fall 2001. Wiggins was also included on GoGirlsMusic.com's latest CD release, GoGirlsMusicFest 2001. Both CD's include fan-favorite, "VW hatchback", from her first solo release, "1000 Steps". VW Hatchback was a 2001 MP3 Hot Pick as well as a chart climber on their Alternative General board. Sean has also been receiving radio play over the airwaves and over the Internet waves all over the US and has been featured with live interviews and reviews in both arenas. Cornell University radio recently did a full hour long show with live interviews and plays from her latest and upcoming CDs.

Wiggins has recorded with producers such as Michael Sembello, (Diana Ross, Gerardo), David Campbell, (Alanis Morissette, James Taylor), Howie Rice, (Pointer Sisters) and Genya Ravan. Her music and performances have been covered in various industry publications including Bam Magazine and Album Network who wrote, "Sean Wiggins, whose powerful vocals easily recall the best qualities of Janis Joplin, Melissa Etheridge and Sass Jordan." Music Connection said, "Sean Wiggins could easily be misidentified as a simple singer/songwriter, but what she does is so much more. She actually takes you into her world and makes you feel right at home.

With all this, come check out a live show or listen to her new CD, her 2nd solo release. You can find Sean's music and tour dates on her web site, at www.seanwiggins.com. She will be playing all over the US in 2002, so keep an eye out.

An absolute "must have" CD
Sean Wiggins has a lot to say and a skill for weaving beautiful melodies around her words. Her powerful voice and acoustic guitar are accompanied by Linda Moss on harmonica. The results have a beautiful folk-blues quality.

My favorite track is "Lazy Susan", with its hauntingly beautiful melody, flawlessly executed. Linda's harmonica complements Sean's vocals perfectly as she tells a tale set in New Orleans. It sends chills down my spine.

"Fair Weather" explorers friendship, at least when it's convenient. "Lizard Man" confirms my suspicion that not everyone in the entertainment business has the performer's best interests at heart. "VW Hatchback" has a melody you'll find yourself humming for days. "Into the Blue" demonstrates Sean's ability to pour emotion into every note. "1000 Steps" and "Little Things" are guaranteed to lift your spirits with their upbeat melodies and lyrics.

There isn't one song on this CD I wouldn't want to hear again and again. That's a rare and wonderful thing. Treat yourself.
