Ridgefield, CT, June 12, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Sean Ono Lennon’s style is his own, yet one can’t help but hear his father’s influence, especially on the vocals. The son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Sean Ono Lennon has been successful in not only becoming an influence in the music industry, producing, writing and doing vocals on albums for everyone from Medeski Martin and Wood (coming to The Playhouse on August 17th) to Lenny Kravitz to Brian Wilson but has also successfully avoided the shadow of growing up with two very famous parents and recording albums that have allowed him to stand out on his own. You can check out Sean Ono Lennon on June 27th at The Ridgefield Playhouse for Movies and The Performing Arts at 8pm.
Sean’s first album, “Into the sun,” had unexpectedly eclectic roots and a laid-back vibe, earning him positive critical reviews and securing a modest place in the post-alternative hierarchy. He had taken a cue from such kaleidoscopic 90s multiculturists as the Beastie Boys, Beck and Cibo Matto. Before the release of “Into the Sun,” Sean Lennon encouraged Yoko Ono to begin performing again, supporting her in a rock trio named IMA. During that time he met Cibo Matto, who were hired to remix a song on Ono and IMA’s “EP,” and he became Cibo Matto’s touring bassist. His second album “Friendly Fire” was released in October 2006. Mr. Lennon has been touring consistently since the release of that album and, in addition to a stop at The Ridgefield Playhouse this June, will be headlining at Lollapalooza in August of this year.
