Composer Sean Christopher
Sean Christopher (McGee)
Sean Christopher, has been composing since he was five years old. "It's all my grandfather’s fault," he says, tongue in cheek. His grandfather, Dennis McGee, was a well-known Louisiana Cajun musician who had been taught to play the violin at an early age. This love of music continued with his dad Gerry McGee, a successful guitar player who has accompanied such artists as Elvis Presley, Kris Kristofferson, Eric Clapton, and many more.
In his early years, Sean’s mother, Anne McGee, a successful singer/songwriter and children's author, influenced his piano and writing skills. His mother had purchased a piano for herself but it was Sean who constantly used it.
Somewhere near the age of seven, One of his neighbors (a friends house) had a Grand Piano, Sean, sat down and began playing a tune. He was asked by his friends Mom, how he knew how to play the song he was playing. He had no idea what the Mother was talking about and had no idea he was playing to the tune of "Fur Elise"...... "I don't recall ever hearing that song before, I just knew how to play it or a part of it at least” He also took interest in a song he heard on the radio called "The Music Box Dancer"
In his later years he was introduced to a music composing computer program called "Performer”, which was used on one of the very earliest versions of the Apple computer with a screen no bigger than 4x4 and a Yamaha DX7. So, with a few sound modules and a somewhat primitive mixing board, Sean taught himself how to compose. This desire and love of composition has continued to grow over the years. “As long as there are people who want to listen,” he says, “I will continue to compose the music.”
Sean has also been involved in film making and photography as well as the art of Painting. Sean Currently lives in the Los Angeles area.
