About Sean Renner
After graduating with a degree in film production and philosophy, Renner moved to London, England, in 2007, where he recorded his well-received album The Blossoms of Armageddon for the UK-based Urban Sound label. The record received airplay on over 150 radio stations across the U.S. and Canada, was featured on ETV's 2010 series, "Married to Rock", MTV's "True Life", and MTV's "Catfish", based on the 2010 documentary of the same name.
Upon returning to the U.S. Renner continued to make a name for himself as a recording artist and as a live performer, and partnered with Morning Bird Records to release his 2010 follow-up record, Sekhmet. Fusing Egyptian folklore with neo-folk orchestration, Sekhmet has been hailed by critics as a "masterpiece" that creates a beautiful blend of sonic elements and paints a deep, lush emotional landscape.
In 2012, Renner captivated his listeners by announcing the 7 Days Project, during which he would write and record his next album in only a weeks time, and invited his fans to send sound recordings to be incorporated into the music. Released in the Spring of 2012, the music of Seven Days expertly merges electronic, pop influences with Renner's distinctive ability to creatively blend sounds, displaying an elegant combination of musical and technical prowess.
Renner continued exploring the music created in the 7 Days project with his 2013 album, Days End, in which he created new and alternate versions of the songs from 7 Days. Some of the songs are new versions, entirely re-recorded with alternative instrumentation, and some songs are completely new compositions that only share a common melody, instrument, theme, or lyric with their partner song from 7 Days. Days End is a unique take on the idea of a companion album, offering both a reimagining of 7 Days, as well as a sound and story all its own.
On stage Sean Renner mirrors his creative process by combining drums, vocals, keyboards, guitars, and sampling using his signature brand of looping. Pairing this with video and animation projections, Renner creates a truly engaging and immersive live performance. Both on the stage and in the studio, Renner continues to push the limits of his musical imagination.
