Sean Fresh – R&B and Conscious Hip Hop
Friday, April 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm MST
On Friday, April 28th, the Sea Of Glass—Center For The Arts presents award-winning, internationally touring R&B / Hip Hop artist, Sean Fresh with his 6-piece band straight out of Little Rock, Arkansas hitting the road with their latest album, The Teshuvah Project II.
Sean Fresh is a native of Little Rock and the son of a Pastor. Sean’s first singing experience was in church where his mom encouraged his beautiful voice and told him that one day he would use it to bring people to God. Sean was also exposed to a very wide scope of other types of music that influenced his artistry, from the likes of Brian McKnight, Babyface, 8 Ball and MJG,to Otis Redding, The Isley Brothers, OutKast, Sam Cooke and Fred Hammond.
As a child Sean grew up in an area dominant in gang violence and he would use his faith and music to escape the threatening world around him. After some self-admitted missteps in his life and following a near-fatal car wreck in May 2006 Fresh decided to get serious about his singing feeling that was what the Lord was leading him to do. Now the singer, songwriter, entertainer uses his sultry voice to enlighten the world through his alluring melodies and conscious beats. Sean is backed by his band he calls “The Nasty Fresh Crew”.
Sean is charming when crooning R&B and riveting as a Hip Hop artist. When asked about the motivation behind some of his more sociopolitical activist lyrics, Sean says, “Social injustice is just as real as the pen that I used to write those lyrics. I know that God continues to heighten our platform so that we can speak up for those that don’t have a voice.”
Sean describes himself as Christian, Artist, Community Builder, R&B Singer, Songwriter, Fearless, Father. He says, “I have won several awards. I have toured in a lot of amazing places but nothing is more important than these.”
