"I don't work at being ordinary." Paul McCartney said it first, but Sean Michael Murray lives it. Through his journey in the entertainment industry, Sean has established himself as a singer/songwriter that is far from ordinary. His talent is undeniable and unique, transcending amongst different media. He began his journey in LA working with the late TAL Herzberg (Lady Gaga, Orianthi) at Interscope Records. He then made the move to New York where he made his Broadway debut in Green Day's Grammy Award-winning show, "American Idiot." Through this show, he got to travel the world starring as the lead role in productions in Japan and South Korea. From there, Sean joined the cast of the revival production of "RENT."
Even though these projects were getting him on stage daily, he still sought out more. He became the lead singer of a New York-based band, Fancy Reagan. His killer voice, stage presence and intoxicating smile quickly garnered the band major industry attention. They won multiple battle of the band competitions and went on to win VH1's reality show, Make A Band Famous, earning them a single's record deal with Universal's Republic Records. Cue "Knock Me Out," the debut single from the band, that was the theme song for the NCAA 2015 March Madness and featured during the 2015 ESPY Awards. As a solo artist, he collaborated with Robbins Entertainment DJ/Producer Bobby Green. They co-wrote the single "Changing Me." The song, featuring smooth, yet powerful vocals from Sean, racked up over 3 million plays on Spotify and climbed to #2 on the charts in Denmark and Sweden. Recently, he teamed up with a mind-blowing guitarist to counterbalance him, forming the pop/rock duo, "Static Stereo."
But Sean hasn't stopped there. He's driving his songwriting deeper, his vocal range wider. If you don't believe it, check out the video from Paramore's Parahoy! where Sean delivered an astounding performance of "Decode," in Hayley William's ORIGINAL KEY. Sean is not working at being ordinary; he's working at being extraordinary. Watching him on stage, however briefly, makes it undoubtedly clear that he is meant for the limelight. As VH1 put it, "Bring a mop because Sean Michael Murray will melt your heart." He is the ultimate combination of raw talent with an infectious personality. He may be working at being extraordinary, but in reality, he already is.
