Sean Dempsey is a Maynooth based 17 year old Hiphop/Rnb/pop artist.
His album opens with ‘I Love My Music’, the production and arrangement isn’t bad but Sean falls into the old self producing problem with the vocal arrangement. ‘Hooked on You’ seems very Tinchy Stryder influenced while Will I Am’s influence can be heard on ‘Let it go’. A little bit of vocal reworking on ‘Red Alert’ could turn it into a huge hit.
The overall on the beat making/production of the album isn’t at all bad, especially when you consider Sean is only 17.
It might be an idea for Sean to try getting other backing vocalists to work with compliment his own vocals on his tracks and try mixing them slightly differently.
The next while will be interesting as Sean develops his style and blends his influences more to get his own sound but this is a good start for Sean to show his strengths and where a little bit of work is needed. I’d be thrilled if I could’ve done this at 17.
