SEANIO is a composer, songwriter and producer, creating music for TV, films, games, apps, production/stock libraries, wrestling themes, advertisements and more - including accompaniment for books. Sometimes he even sings his own songs too! (But he’s a little shy about that!)
Growing up in Yorkshire, England, it was apparent that Sean White was a creative soul and had inherited his family’s creative gene passed down through his Irish heritage. He showed talent in art, literacy and music, but particularly in music. Before leaving primary school, he explored both guitar and piano. Even the saxophone interested him, but he was told he was too small for that! Then came drums. It wasn’t long before he found himself being tutored by accomplished and renowned drummer Paul Smith and reaching semi-finals in national competitions as the drummer in his high school gospel choir.
It was in fact at high school where Sean was encouraged by then Head of Music Cathy Hindle, to explore anything and everything in music which intrigued him. She offered him a safe haven during break times with free use of the music centre, where he experimented daily, teaching himself melodies and harmonies on piano, self-expression on drums while listening to his favourite tracks, and crucially, production methods using an early version of Cubase on the limited number of very 1990s PCs that were available. Later, he would continue this exploration of music production at both the Leeds college of Music and later, the School of Electronic Music in Manchester after working as a Junior Audio Engineer at a games developer turned publisher, Team17.
Despite mild success on the local gig scene as part of several rock bands spurring him on further (including having played at many well-known venues in Leeds), life unfortunately took an unexpected turn for the worse and Sean was unable to complete his college courses due to the onset of Crohn's Disease and other related health issues including early onset Osteoporosis. Taking a hiatus from music due to this, he explored many other ventures along the way whilst re-learning a few lost life skills, but there was no denying music was his calling and true passion in life. Music is where he wanted and needed to be. Now, after a long road back - both physically and mentally - and a lot of hard work and determination, driven further by having received a little mentorship, support and friendship from two of his musical inspirations, he has armed himself with a fully furnished professional home studio, and has all he needs to “begin again” and pick up where he left off.
