Taking on the task of covering one of the greatest singer-songwriters in history is one that has proved daunting to many musicians...but Sean Sullivan is one who's up to the task. Having grown up with a completely eclectic blend of influences, Sullivan is comfortable with everything from jazz to pop to blues to Latin music; which makes it no surprise he's able to cover no less than the late, great Bob Marley with ease.
Sullivan, who will be releasing the full-length Hereafter on January 21, gave Yahoo Music the first listen to his swinging cover of "Waiting In Vain," which we're sure will make you want to get up and dance...right now!
Sullivan is not only a Berklee-trained musician, he also holds a English Literature degree from Wesleyan University. He was born in the south to a "colorful" family but now considers himself a New Yorker through and through. If you'd like to catch him live, you can keep up with his schedule here.
