SEAN HARKNESS (Guitars) was born in North Attleboro, MA and got his first guitar exactly 11 years later. Within 6 months, Harkness’s trio had a weekly engagement at The Downtown Cabaret Theatre in Bridgeport. Highschool bands, Berklee College of Music, ‘busking’ the streets of Europe, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and the vast music scene in NYC have all contributed to forming the seasoned professional he is today. Windham Hill Records [BMG/Sony/RCA] signed Harkness as a solo Artist shortly after his move to NYC in 1994. After touring Japan with the Broadway production of “SWING!” Sean returned many times, including a trip to record “Urakaji,” a solo guitar CD in Okinawa for Rinken Records. Harkness has three other independent releases: the self-multitracked “Trio Of One,” the fully produced “Harkness Knight” with saxman Eric Knight, and 2010’s “H2 Flights: Volume One,” a collaboration with Canadian trumpeter Mike Herriott. Sean is a first-call sideman who compliments an exhaustive client list of singers and musicians nationally & internationally.
