      Sean McConnell, Adam Hood

      Seeing Sean McConnell in concert in 2012 is the opportunity to see the old adage 'hard work wins' play out before your eyes. He started his career growing up listening to folk artists in coffeehouses, and soon embarked on an unprecedented ascent, taking the long road to success. He has poured himself into numerous
      independent album releases, and COUNTLESS nights performing for whoever, wherever. Never afraid to push further into new markets, his van, aptly titled Moby Dick, logged over 200,000 miles - in TWO YEARS. That is the best barometer of raw determination, and it is that focus and passion that you hear in each and every one of his performances, delivered with such exuberance that you might think he travelled 200,000 miles just for that nights show! He is joined by Adam Hood for an evening of songwriting you will not soon forget. When Adam Hood was asked if he has a personal motto, he answered “Do what you love and love what you do.” Such a simple declaration sounds more like a cliché slogan from a motivational speaker than an actual way of life. How lucky is the man who is actually able to live by this credo? Think it is an impossible dream? Think again. This is the life of songwriter and artist Adam Hood. Such a lofty pursuit does not come easy. Forging a successful career in music can be challenging and has been hard earned for Adam. His journey, beginning with his early years growing up in Opelika, Alabama, to a fateful encounter with country music powerhouse Miranda Lambert, ended up taking him right where he was meant to be.

      As a young man, this son of a corporate forester spent nearly 10 years in Alabama, working a “real job” surveying land and occasionally delivering arrangements for his mother’s flower shop, all the while honing his craft as a writer and performer, using his day job as a means to support and develop his musical recordings. In 2001 upon the release of a self-produced and financed live album, 21 To Enter, he gave up working this “real job” and hit the road touring to support the record bringing along just his guitar. After a couple of years out of the road, 2003 brought the release of his first EP, 6th Street, which quickly earned attention and critical acclaim. more >>>
