From dancehall shuffles and the electric honky tonk of the Bakersfield sound, all the way down to belly rubbin’ ballads, Sean Burns plays his brand of Country Music with an unparalleled enthusiasm.
Continuing to tour relentlessly, the Winnipeg based country music enthusiast delivers from-the-heart performances of songs written with highway miles and heartbreak.
A Bakersfield Half-Dozen, Sean Burns & Lost Country’s nod to some of their favourite and most influential artists of the famed Bakersfield-sound will be released on February 11, 2020 on Stringbreakin’ Records. Recorded on September 24 & 25, 2019 during non-operational hours at the Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club, the group aimed to capture the raw sounds of a live honky tonk band in its natural element.
As Buck Owens said: “I love this sound. I think it’s a different sound. It’s an unpolished, give ‘em hell, straight ahead, no B.S about it. It’s music. It’s my music. It’s what I do and it’s what I love.”
It’s also the kind of Country Music that a teenage Sean Burns fell in love with. Partnering with his rock solid Honky Tonk band, Lost Country, [featuring Grant Siemens (Guitars), Ryan “Skinny” Dyck (Pedal Steel), Joanna Miller (Drums & Vocals), and Jeremy Hamm (Fiddle)], A Bakersfield Half-Dozen is a dream come true for the Winnipeg based Country Music enthusiast.
