I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Guitarist / Songwriter Sean Pinchin Releases Rust Bucket
Guitarist / Songwriter Sean Pinchin Releases Rust
Bucket November 12,
Watching Toronto-based guitarist Sean Pinchin perform
live, it's hard to see the separation between the man and his instrument. Each
slide and bent note is delivered with a shocking balance of passion, intimacy
and also bewilderment. Where does Sean begin and his guitar end?
His new album Rust Bucket illustrates the evolution of his music
from rocker to folk/roots singer to bonafide major player in the blues scene -
marking the start of what will surely be a long and exciting career.
Juno winning producer Rob Szabo gives Rust Bucket a
ton of mileage and revisits Sean’s electric days informed by the influences of
Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Lang and Chris Whitley. "Sean is an extraordinary talent,
a total natural with a dirty feel when he plays that you can't fake. We recorded
most of the album live off the floor in 2 sessions with Sean playing slide
guitar and singing live with the band. Very few players can pull that off. Sean
is the real deal." says Szabo.
Firmly planted in the blues, the title of the album captures Sean’s musical
and personal journey. He says, “Rust Bucket is a reference to my body, mind
and guitar. They are all strong but weathered from years of abuse and
accomplishments. Music has saved my life again and again.”
The album is supported by a cast of some of Toronto's finest musicians
including Adam Warner on drums (Jill Barber, Royal
Wood), Mark McIntyre on bass (Danny Michel, Dean
Brody), and Toronto singer/songwriter Emma-Lee provides
Thematically Sean delivers stories of personal struggle and triumph after
living with depression for many years. Realizing that his grief could be put to
constructive use he began writing about everything that caused him pain, fear
and heartache. The result is a stunning collection of songs ranging from barn
burners like “Broke Down Automobile” and “Boo Hoo” to moody,
evocative pieces like “Comin’ Home” and “Can't Stop Falling In
The confidence heard in his voice and songs on Rust Bucket are not
without a history of hard work – averaging 150 shows per year, Sean has worked
tirelessly at promoting himself and gaining fans at a grassroots level. Despite
its name, Rust Bucket is a gleaming gem ready for the road and destined
to bring Sean Pinchin into the spotlight.
