Sean Jeanness - guitar, vocals

'Kootz' singer-guitar-man Sean Jeanness came to the band in late 2019... He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, during the 'turbulent-summer' of 1968. Moving to New York City many years ago, he has only recently has 'set up shop', along with his family in the northern-region of 'The Garden State'!

A UMass/Boston alumni (class of ‘90)-grad, Sean got the 'music-bug', listening to the Beatles at the 'impressionable-young-age' of 11... Shortly-thereafter at age 12, he (strongly)-requested to his mom that she buy him a guitar... By the time this lad reached his teen-years, he was already-rockin', starting his first band (the irrepressible "Tinted Image"), at age-13! This 'boy' hasn’t stopped since... and isn't-likely-to do so anytime soon!

OK, a little 'musical-history'; To his recollection, 'Mr. J' has been involved-with (roughly speaking, in his own words), about one-million bands; Original-groups, tribute-acts, cover-bands & wedding-revues! You name it, he’s been in a band for it! Some of his 'legacy-favorites' include; The 'Big-Apple'-based Bon Scott-era AC/DC tribute; "Done Dirt Cheap"... "Anything For Loaf" (a very popular Meat Loaf tribute), "Macon Georgia Soul" (a Boston based Otis Redding-act) and "The Doug Flutie Band" (Yes, 'THAT' Doug Flutie... The legendary College & NFL quarterback’s-own classic-rock offering).

Sean can be heard on countless radio/TV-jingles & voiceovers for product-brands you've... used in the shower last night, ate for breakfast this morning... or even drank at the bar last-weekend! He is also 'the voice' on the 'ring-entrance'-anthem for WWE-superstar 'Sheamus'; An 'epic', entitled, “Written In My Face”!

As an actor, Sean has toured the theatrical (and literal)-world. Most-notably, he's appeared in many successful Broadway-shows, including 'Rock Of Ages', 'Hair', 'Jekyll & Hyde' and 'The Last Ship' (with Sting).

And now, Sean... (as they say where he’s from) is 'WICKED'-excited to be joining-forces with 'The Kootz'-band! C'mon-out and catch this 'Voice of Voices', LIVE!
