Sean Costello

Teen blues phenom Sean Costello was born and raised in Atlanta, receiving his first guitar for his ninth birthday. A primarily self-taught player, he initially gravitated toward hard rock but soon discovered Stevie Ray Vaughan, moving on from there to Howlin' Wolf; under the wing of local bluesman Felix Reyes, a 14-year-old Costello won the Beale Street Blues Society's talent award in 1994. Another contestant was Susan Tedeschi, and soon Costello began touring as her lead guitarist and stayed with her band for a couple years. He also provided guitar on Tedeschi's 1998 album, Just Won't Burn. Soon after leaving Tedeschi's band, Costello assembled backing outfit the Jivebombers -- bassist Carl Shankle, keyboardist and harpist Paul Linden, and drummer Terrence Prather -- and issued his debut album, Call the Cops, in 1996. After touring extensively and revamping his band by replacing Shankle with Melvin Zachary on bass and adding keyboardist Matt Wauchope, Costello released Cuttin' In in early 2000. The album was a success in the blues community, gaining him a W.C. Handy Award nomination for Best New Artist Debut. In 2001 Costello released his third album, Moanin' for Molasses, and further cemented his reputation as one of the best young blues guitarists on the scene. The self-titled Sean Costello was released on Artemis Records in 2004. Unfortunately, Artemis folded a few months later and the album -- intended as Costello's breakthrough -- never received the publicity it deserved. It would be four years before Costello would release another album with 2008's We Can Get Together. Sadly, on April 15, 2008, just two months after the release of that album and a day before his 29th birthday, Costello was found dead in a local Atlanta hotel room. A subsequent toxicology report found the cause of death to be a mixture of drugs including heroin. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I saw him at a small venue in Richmond VA, Purchased his self named CD which he signed for me. Such a shame to loose a great performer so young. I still listen to his CD often.
Thanks for this listing. Saw him in Jackson a few years before he passed. He was a nice fellow. He even let me come backstage for a picture with him.
sh-t

my son died of a drug overdose sept. 18th o9'. He loved sean- he was 28 years old and played guitar, perhaps they're blowing minds in heaven.
Still very sad that Sean is no longer with us. I've seen him play live many times. The last time was a couple of days before his death. He never ceased to amaze and captivate his audiences. He is a true blues genius and I have even more respect for his talent after hearing what he endured. My heart goes out to his family, friends, band mates, the blues community. The world has lost a blues legacy way before his time and the city of Atlanta has lost a friend. We still miss you Sean.
It is with the deepest sadness that we issue this press release, and the news that Delta Groove recording artist Sean Costello passed away in Atlanta, GA on Tuesday, April 15th, one day before his 29th birthday.
