CANADA (Sasha Stoltz Publicity): There’s not enough highway for Sean Jones, who’s been restless over the several weeks with one performance after another, and this Saturday’s Canadian Music Festival is now on the list.
The Festival will be at Czehoski’s on Queen St, West, where its doors open at 8:30pm with a $10 cover fee charge; Sean’s performance starts at midnight with a 40-minute set: giving fans the first taste of his new material, in which he’ll heading back to the studio to cut more demos to choose the 10-12 songs for his first, full-length album, which will rock but still have the soul from the last record, yet this one will be on the next level. “People are going to be surprised by the second” Sean states. “I feel like I can balance out the both worlds. There are some really good songs.”
Besides making music, Sean will be making movies with his debut in a supporting role. In Sons 2 The Grave, he’ll play a detective in the drama about a mother who moves her son to a low-income neighborhood to allow him to attend a high profile basketball school, but the boy ends up falling into a bad crowd and she must now deal with the consequences. The movie is expected to start Pre Production the third week in March, and go to camera May 1.
Sean, who was a movie extra and then a model for 14 years, understands the comparisons with the film industry and the record business. Still, he’s in no hurry to be the next Denzel, Will Smith, or Terrence Howard — not yet anyway. “It’s perfect to get my feet wet. This is a whole different world; I want to work on acting” Sean said.
Getting up, working out, having vocal lessons, writing songs — it’s more than an everyday routine for Sean, an artist with incredible drive and ambition. “I’m on a mission. I cannot be stopped. My determination is stronger” he continues. “I know sooner or later, my time will come. As long as I’m strong in mind and I’m strong in body, there is no one that can stop me.”
