Named as one of the greatest guitarists worldwide under the age of 30 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine as well as being Acoustic Magazine’s ‘Next Big Thing’, self-taught solo guitarist Sean de Burca, has released records in HMV, played in America and performed at the prestigious London Acoustic Guitar Show.

“From harmonics to percussive slapping to agile fretboard dancing, this southpaw knows a thing or two about getting the most sound possible out of his guitar. On his three full-length releases on Bandcamp, the self-taught guitarist shows he isn’t afraid of taking risks.” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine 2014

Sean’s 3rd record, titled “Six String Gun”, released in July 2012 immediately hit the shelves of HMV, as well as various other stores across the United Kingdom and America. During the week of August 13th 2012, “Six String Gun” outsold Lana Del Rey, Florence and the Machine, Maroon 5 and Drake in the weekly sales in the Tunbridge Wells (Kent, UK) HMV store.

Throughout 2013 Sean played close to 100 shows, performing his original percussive acoustic music created with altered tunings, guitar body percussion, fretboard tapping and groove-driven Rock infused riffs.

Most notable of Sean’s experience is that during October 2013, he was asked by his guitar heroes and USA guitar headliners, Craig D’Andrea and Trevor Gordon Hall, to support them on their UK Tour. Also during the same month, the leading company in acoustic instrument pickup equipment, K&K Sound, chose Sean as their Artist of the Month, in the company of Andy McKee, Don Ross, Calum Graham, Antoine Dufour and many others.

Sean has performed at a wide variety of festivals and shows including The London Acoustic Guitar Show 2013, the Brighton Acoustic Guitar Festival, Fusion Festival (supporting Toploader), TKMaxx Comic Relief Showcase, the Fingerstyle Winter Fest (with Chris Woods and Richard Capener), Brighton’s Great Escape Festival, Tribal Earth Festival and many others.

Sean’s other achievements include having his music played globally on various radio stations as well as regular airplay and live sessions on BBC Radio. He is often featured in international music magazines and regional newspapers and magazines
