Show Notes

Phillip and David were honored to be invited to interview Sean Kelly of The Samples IN PERSON!  This is one of their longest and strongest #favbands and were so pumped to make this a reality.  So they headed to Boonton Coffee in Boonton, NJ where Sean had performed the night before to hear all about how he famously dropped out of high school (the system actually failed him) and headed out to Boulder, CO to "find a place inside the wind" and write and play music.

This is a wonderful interview filled with nuggets and stories that you might know, and some you probably never heard before (we sure didn't!).  So please take a listen and enjoy!

Info on The Thunderbird!

Best known for his tenor voice, unique guitar playing and songwriting, singer/songwriter Sean Kelly is the front man for The Samples. While attending only one year of high school, he began playing guitar and composing his own songs. After moving to Colorado in 1987 to start a band, Kelly became a fixture on local club stages as the front man for The Samples, playing original songs with a variety of rock, reggae and folk. When not touring with The Samples, he enjoys playing his songs acoustically. Kelly’s songs have been featured in various soundtracks and advertisements including "Could It Be Another Change” in the film The Perks of Being a Wallflower and in television’s Younger and in ads for MSNBC’s election coverage. With The Samples, Kelly has released twelve studio albums, several compilations, EPs and live releases.
