Rising out of Montclair, at a young age he was captivated by the fantasy and whimsy of music. Sean was inspired to be a musician since he was two years old. His mother brought him his first toy guitar with an attached microphone. Sean recalled when he used to walk around the house, singing and playing his guitar to Michael Jackson music at the age of two. At the age four, his mother brought him a walkman for Christmas and he used to play his cassette with the song Disco Inferno by the Trammps. He would go around the house and outside rocking to burn baby burn.

The intense message of the lyrics and back-story has inspired his creation.
