Young guitar sensation Sean Costello was a highly accomplished and regarded musician who left us much too soon. His early death in 2008 at 29 was a blow to his friends and fans alike.

Sean Costello: Cuttin' In

Read "Cuttin' In" reviewed by Ed Kopp

With Cuttin’ In, 20-year-old Sean Costello serves up a retro-sounding release that includes gritty jump, raucous Chicago blues and funky New Orleans R&B, all done up with the know-how and agility of an artist twice Costello’s age.
