After a few lessons from a local teacher, Sean developes his skills with patience and hard practice over many months.

One night at a local dance, someone asked Sean to sing a song and much to people's surprise; Sean had a voice with real quality. A few months later he was offered a record deal. This was Sean's intoduction to the UK market, and over the next few years had sold millions of cassettes earning him the 'Biggest Seller' award from the Federation of British Market Traders.
