Still working on that hot first release.



The Quarantined, led by Sean Martin on guitar/vocals, Alex Diaz on bass, Kaspars Grinbergs on drums. With their engaging songwriting, high energy and poetic self-destruction, The Quarantined bring another spawn of rock music, fusing standards from today and the cornerstones that built them from Jimi Hendrix, to Black Sabbath to Green Day. Sean grew up singing from the age 4. He always had music in his life, playing constantly like a soundtrack. His father was a radio DJ, his mother a lover of opera and Classical music; there was always a wide pallet of music in the house. Once he started taking lessons from his local guitar legend, Barry Marloff, he got tuned into bands like Cream, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Ozzy, Nirvana, Metallica, Pantera, the Doors and Guns n Roses.
After a turbulent adolescence, Sean took the anger and frustration from his youth into the Army, where he deployed to Iraq with the 3rd/509th Infantry Regiment (Airborne), 4th Brigade 25th Infantry Division, as an Airborne Infantrymen.
419 combat missions later, Sean was released from the military with a medical discharge for PTSD, in late 2007, when he turned his sights to music schools armed with his G.I. Bill.
He landed in LA at Musician's Institute (MI) in 2009, where he took his music knowledge to the next level, learning about jazz legends like Coltrane and Joe Pass, to studying Earth Wind and Fire, to Jeff Beck to Stevie Wonder; not just from a musician's point of view (how to play it) but from an engineer's perspective (how to recreate something like it in the studio.) At MI, Sean played in many bands. He cut his teeth playing down the Sunset Strip, but also around the Valley and other parts of LA, San Diego and Northern California.
After taking classes in sound engineering, Sean started writing/playing/singing by himself while learning from great engineers/producers like Jim Morgan, T.j. Helmmeric, and Dave Issac, and created the start of The Quarantined in Musician's Institute's Studio A, when he recorded "Sex and No Regrets" in July 2011.
Since then Sean went on to record "Where did you go?" and "Ballad of a Dead Man" in Musician's Institute's Independent Artist Program (IAP) project studios, using only an Avalon, logic, and a diverse collection of 3rd party plugins. Sean is currently in pre-production for his first full length studio album with The Quarantined and promoting and playing shows around the Los Angeles area.
