SEAN MULLANEY, 25 Singer/actor

In addition to performing as a solo artist, is currently also performing with The Instant Classics through June, when he leaves for a West Coast tour. You sing and act. Any preference or are they intertwined? I definitely prefer to sing because I actually know how to do that and have more confidence with it. I love to act, but I kind of make it up as I go and don’t take it so seriously, which has oddly only helped me as it turns out. What drew you to performing? I started to take singing lessons in high school because I had this genius idea that if I could sing, I would for sure get all the girls. It didn’t pay off for me then, but I did find my fiancée while doing musical theatre later, so mission accomplished! Your favorite genres to sing are: Rock mostly, but I love a song full of heartfelt emotion. If it’s something that I can get behind emotionally, I know I will love it—and usually that will translate to the audience loving it. Do you write your own songs? If so, what inspires them? I co-write all my songs with a brilliant musician named Billy Cioffi. I like to think I bring the clay and he sculpts it into a piece of art. I love writing about what I care about, and that’s bettering the world by raising awareness of important societal issues with a rocking beat. Accomplishments you’re most proud of so far: I’m hopefully in the process of that answer with my current album, but I’ve also found true love at a young age, and that is a very rare feat in my opinion. In 10 years, you hope to be: Touring the world spreading uplifting messages of hope and eternal optimism through my music to massive crowds by day, and living with my beautiful family on a large plot of land where we can have everything we need by the power of our own hands by night.

When you aren’t performing, you’re usually: I enjoy living my life in the present and learning about life through experiences in the world, or playing Xbox.
