Sean Dietrich

A vocalist/pianist who desperately combats the darkness of his own mediocrity.

About Me

A Kansas City native, Sean Dietrich grew up playing and singing Gospel music in the church from as early as he can remember. At age nine, Sean's father bought for him an old and beaten-up piano from an elderly blind local pianist and the jazz music scene hasn't been the same since.

Sean has received national recognition for his musical and vocal talents, placing in the Phillips National Jazz Piano Competition, performing on NPR, PBS, and other colorful venues, and with some of the finest musicians in the country, including members from the Phil Woods quartet.

In the Summer of 2007 Dietrich was exclusively contracted by R&B recording artist Usher to perform at his privately owned restaurants in the metropolitan Atlanta area, gaining an audience in the “Gate City of the South”

Currently Sean Dietrich concentrates intently on composition, the music of his trio, and a performance schedule in the Southeast region.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
