From Janis: Sean’s one of the best young singer-songwriters I’ve heard, and it’s a real joy to have her here. Her family’s been part of the Nashville music business for three generations, so you could say she “comes by it honestly” – but the style of a song like “Rebecca Henry” is clearly all her own. In addition to her musical life, Sean co-founded and edits a monthly magazine, Broadside (shades of my own past). She speaks to hope, and passion, and dreams – pretty much everything I could wish for in a younger artist – and I’m grateful for it.

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
