Sean Costello

Young guitar sensation Sean Costello was a highly accomplished and regarded musician who left us much too soon. His early death in 2008 at 29 was a blow to his friends and fans alike. Costello left behind a short but solid reputation as one of the premier exponents of the blues for his generation.

Costello was born in Philadelphia in 1979, moved with his family to Atlanta at the age of 9, and soon afterward picked up the guitar. Within a few short years he'd won the Memphis Blues Society's new talent award, and was on the road with his own band. At age 17 he released his first album, “Call The Cops,” acclaimed by Real Blues Magazine as “an explosive debut.” He soon joined forces with fellow blues guitarist Susan Tedeschi, with whom he toured and recorded, laying down tasteful lead guitar work on her Gold-certified Tone-Cool debut “Just Won't Burn.”
