Tankus The Henge

Sean toured the UK and Europe with Tankus the Henge - a five piece powerhouse of a band drawing visual and musical influence from old time fairgrounds to the modern day Circus; The Beatles to Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello to Radiohead. 


Sean played some of the biggest music festivals in the world during his time with the band and recorded on their latest album.

Company B

During his university years Sean honed his alto and tenor saxophone chops playing with professional jump jive band Company B. Inspired by the music of legends such as Louis Prima and Louis Jordon, the band captured the sound of the past while still injecting a healthy dose of contemporary rowdiness. He can be heard on their debut album Jump Jive Classics Volume One. Produced by John Cornfield (Oasis, Muse, Supergrass) this album includes an array of timeless tunes alongside four original songs written by the band's leader- Matthew Arundell. 

The album is available on iTunes, Spotify and the band's website-
