About Sean Holcomb

Sean Holcomb is central Florida’s hottest new member of the country music scene. As the winner of the 2019 Orlando Weekly – Best Country Act, Holcomb has already charmed crowds with his soulful voice and outright honest lyrics. Often compared to the likes of Travis Tritt and Chris Stapleton, Holcomb is bringing a fresh new vibe to country music with his original songwriting. Holcomb’s lyrics are drawn from his time as a former cattle rancher in southern Colorado as well as from his experiences with “love, heartbreak, loss, redemption, joy, and of course there’s alcohol.” 

One of eight children, in a household where room and money were tight, Holcomb’s first guitar was a hand-me-down nylon string guitar, that he first taught himself to play backwards as a left-handed guitarist. According to Holcomb, he “luckily had help from a short stint with an instructor who forced me to learn to play right-handed.” From a young age, Holcomb was obsessed with listening to music, whether it be during his homeschool work or riding around town in the family van with his dad. 

Although he grew up with seven other siblings, Holcomb first practiced and learned to tune his old guitar alongside whatever was playing on the radio. During his early years of teaching himself to play, Holcomb connected with and found inspiration from artists like Jamey Johnson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Tom Petty, and Toby Keith just to name a few. A couple of years later at the age of 14, Holcomb began his journey to performing by using his life’s savings to buy his first electric guitar, playing in bands with friends, and joining the worship team at his hometown church. In his own words, “I kind of got in to the whole music thing and haven’t stopped since.” 

Not only has Holcomb been recognized as the “Best Country Act” of 2019 and “Best Country Act – Runner Up” of 2018, but he has also received awards for his songwriting ability as the winner of the JVC Broadcasting Wolf 103.1 Songwriter Rounds Competition in 2016. 

Holcomb’s latest 10-song original album, South of the South, was released in August 2017 and can be found on all streaming platforms (Apple iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and all digital streaming platforms) or purchased from his website here.
