((Sean Nicholas Savage)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness
Montreal's Sean Nicholas Savage reminds me of Harry Nilsson. You know him. Sure you do. The "Midnight Cowboy" theme song guy. There you go. Of course there's a lot more to Harry Nilsson than that song. Have you see that excellent documentary about him that came out a few... oh, wait. I'm getting sidetracked. This is about Sean Nicholas Savage. Not Harry Nilsson. I'm straying from the Point (where my Nilsson fans at out there, am I right, hoop-hoop).
Montreal seems to have this eccentro-troubadour situation going on these days. Not a scene. Just a situation. Mac DeMarco definitely fits the situation. So does Pat Jordache. And Sean Nicholas Savage, too. He rocks the weirdo Canada-Americana (Canadacana?), too.
Maybe this is just folk. There are harmonica solos, after all. Or is it just good singer-songwriter pop? I don't know. But I do know that whatever this is, it's weird. And weird is good. You know who else was weird? Harry Nilsson (he made an album that was a fable about a boy whose head was a point and, yes, this came to him during an acid trip, and yes it is awesome). Anyway, I don't know why I keep talking about Harry Nilsson. Maybe because he was amazing?
Sean Nicholas Savage might be heading toward amazing too. I'm into it. Maybe you'll be into it. Give him a listen below. Decide for yourself. You'll either get it right away or you won't get it. Unless you get it later, of course. Getting is sometimes a process. When it's not spontaneous, of course. Both are valid experiences of getting the get. Everyone is valid. Nothing is wrong. We all rule. Forever.
