BC roots and country artist Sean Hogan brings his unique, soul-stirring and compelling voice to the Lakeside lounge known as Drinkwaters Public House at Sproat Lake Landing.
This is part of their ongoing music series, Sessions at Sproat Lake Landing. Hogan will perform Friday, Jan. 22 and Saturday, Jan. 23 from 7–9 p.m. nightly.
Back around 1993- 1994, Hogan played the old Westbay Hotel—more than 20 years later, he returns to what is now known as Sproat Lake Landing, with a career that has gone national.
Hogan fondly remembers the beaver dam on the lake, and watching the animals making the new lodge. “I’ll be able to perform at this beautiful new and gorgeously set facility, Drinkwaters,” he said.
Hogan took note of the new facility while on his way to play Tofino last year. “It’s gonna be special for those who’d like to relax socialize and enjoy the fire, the view, a great dinner, a drink or two and hear some music from my career and their favourite singer/songwriters as well.”
With a stylistic sound that industry observers have said is balanced between alt-country authenticity and modern rustic pop appeal, Hogan’s 1996 debut album was loud and clear, earning him the first-ever Canadian Country Music Associations Independent Male Artist of the Year Award, followed in 2003 by the nod for Canadian Country Music Associations Roots Artist of the Year.
Hogan has had 19 music videos on Country Music Television Canada to dat,e and has released six albums in Canada and had over dozen top 20 and several top 10 hits on country radio in the past 18 years.
He regularly tours throughout Canada; and released in December his double album Best Of collection entitled Noteworthy, that goes beyond radio hits.
