Sean, who performed in the 2007 series of X Factor with the band Futureproof and was also a contestant in The Voice UK series two, has developed a strong online following, with more than five million hits on his YouTube channel and more than 50,000 subscribers.

Sean said: “It’s been over ten years of song-writing to get to this point and now I’ve selected five of the best songs I have written and produced for Alive. Each song has a different meaning and tells its own story. I wanted this EP to relate to as many people as possible: this is what has inspired me to do this project.”
