Rounder Records has announced the signing of Nashville-based singer-songwriter Sean McConnell, whose Rounder debut is slated for a summer release.
Tracy Gershon, Vice President of A&R at Rounder, said, “I have been a fan of Sean’s songwriting for a long time. I was so excited when he played me this new body of work, and I’m even more excited that Rounder can be a part of his artistic journey.”
McConnell grew up in Boston with parents who sang in folk clubs. He signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Publishing right out of college. He is also a regular on the Texas touring circuit.
McConnell is a co-writer of Rascal Flatts’ “Come Wake Me Up.” His songs have been recorded by Brothers Osborne, Eli Young Band, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, David Nail, Brad Paisley, Randy Rogers Band and more.
Although his self-titled new album will serve as his introduction to many listeners, McConnell is an experienced performer with several D.I.Y. indie releases to his credit.
“I kind of feel like I’ve been in a really long boot camp,” he said. “I’m really grateful for that, because I feel like I’ve gained enough experience to know the deal and be prepared for anything. I’m excited to see where the next part of the journey takes me.”
In advance of his summer release, McConnell has launched a set of spring tour dates with Drew Holcomb and Kris Allen. He will play a solo date at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley on March 5.
McConnell is represented by 333 Entertainment and Brave World Artist Agency.
