SESPOOL is the stage name of San Francisco based singer, songwriter, and producer Sean E. After a decade in the Bay Area indie rock scene, most notably as the bassist of alt folk trio Rin Tin Tiger, he released his first solo full length album “(this love is) eternal” independently in July of 2019. Sean E’s melancholic lyrics float in and out of synth-drenched soundscapes lead by hard hitting bass-heavy grooves and guitar. SESPOOL’s new album “before the fog covers me” arrived October 9, 2020, bringing together progressive rock, dream pop, trap, and metal into one unforgettable genre-bending listen.
“what would happen if 100 gecs used the dark web…a digital portal into an irresistible hell.” – FLOOD Magazine
“SESPOOL has cultivated an awe-inspiringly diverse, expressive, and evocative range of sounds on his sophomore album, adding his name to the list of artists like 100 gecs and Lil Aaron, creating a genre-agnostic mashup of trap, rock, metal, and psychedelia into a potent blend that’s uniquely his own.” – Swim into the Sound
“The echoed poetic assemblies of Sespool skirt the edges of post-industrial blends embodying a sense of isolation within a sprawling city while reflecting on the chaos through the lens of an artist. Well-balanced, culminating in a mix of synth, rock, hip-hop beats, airy harmonies, and edges where they matter, Before The Fog Covers Me draws on a wealth of experience from an incredibly talented musician and strikes in all the right ways.” – Nanobot Rock
“His new single “Newsflash” represents this genre-agnostic moment in rap. The beat is recognizably hip-hop, but the guitars could come from a mid-1990s alt-rock radio ballad, and its ever-mutating hook of a vocal track could fit on a ‘60s British Invasion single if you swapped out the 808s for guitars and live drums.” – 48 Hills
