Blue artist Sean Costello died in Atlanta on April 15, one day shy of his 29th birthday. The cause of death was not reported.
Costello had been on the road in recent weeks and had numerous concert dates scheduled in the U.S. and abroad, running well into November. His record label, Delta Groove, issued the following statement today: Sean was not only a member of the Delta Groove musical family, he was also a friend, and words cannot express the sorrow we feel at having to say goodbye so soon. As blues music fans, we unfortunately grow somewhat accustomed to the sadness of the inevitable passing of musical elders after long and fruitful careers.
