"From the Delaware State News: Sundays Cooldog Concert Series program will have a decidedly local flair with former Dover and Woodside resident Sean Cheezum opening for Dover native Casey MacKenzie and her Berklee College of Music counterpart Liz Longley.Playing a six-string guitar with his own brand of catchy rhythms and heartfelt lyrics, Mr. Cheezum has frequented the Delaware and Maryland music scene for the last few years.Not a believer in genre limitations, he said he’s influenced by everything from drum and bass electronica to ambient monk chanting and old swing. “I listen to all types of music, including monk chants and metal. But my favorite is electronic,” he said.“I think the driving bass drums and trancey feel of the electronic music I listen to helped forge the percussiveness of my (guitar) playing.” He looks to one artist, Grammy-winning guitarist and singer Ani DiFranco, as a huge influence." - Craig Horleman - delaware state news

Bio

"Having Just released his 2nd studio recording "Folkin' A" in April of 2010, Sean Cheezum is now taking his music to a new level. He's tearing up the Delmarva Folk scene again with his percussive acoustic Rhythms and Heartfelt lyrics. Now exploring new boundaries, he's going nationwide and hitting the road.
Citing influences such as Ani DiFranco, Erik Mongrain, and Jason Mraz, his self described "Neo-Folk" music is a blend of percussive fingerstyle acoustic, Jazz, blues, catchy melodies and metaphoric as well as sometimes political vocals. This singer/songwriter is one to be taken seriously and not someone you'd want to miss if he's playing at an area near you. Now with his 3rd studio album in the works he says the fans can expect something a little different this time with some of the same flavors.

"I've always been really big into electronic music and hip hop as well as the fusion of genres. I'm trying to blend folk music and other genres into something new and exciting that people will still find somewhat familiar and poppy. Also, I'm picking up an electric guitar for the 1st time on an album and playing w a full band which is fresher than fresh"
