On WeddingWire since 2021

Sean Cleland presents a unique live music selection that is perfect for your next event or wedding.

Sean is a Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist based out of Honolulu, Hawai'i. Described as an "innovative singer-songwriter and prolific performer who plays pop, rock, and soul" by The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, his music can in one moment be introspective and refined, and in the next, fiery and emotional. Blending together a hooky pop-songwriting aesthetic with the raw emotion of his electric guitar, Sean traverses and synthesizes the frenetic passion of rock and blues with the sultry sounds of r&b, jazz, and soul.

Sean's solo act features a completely live (zero pre-recorded material) looping performance of vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, and sampled drums. He offers a fuller sounding experience than a single performer with just an acoustic guitar. Within one song, you will hear singing, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboard, bass guitar, and drums (and Sean's hourly rate is much more affordable than a comparable trio, quartet, or quintet). Sean can play a selection of covers and originals.

Why choose Sean for your next event or wedding?

- 5 stars on both Yelp and The Knot.

- Award winning artist (2021 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards Finalist, 2019 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards Winner).

Sept 3 2021 Wedding

We hired Sean to perform at our wedding reception at Turtle Bay. Sean was very easy to work with, and accommodated all of our request. We couldn't be happier that Sean was our entertainment for our special day. We highly recommend Sean. Thank you Sean.

The perfect choice for a musician for our perfect wedding.

Sean was exactly what we wanted in a musician for our November 4th, 2023 wedding at Loulu Palm in Haleiwa. We were looking for a professional musician who could stand out and make our ceremony special, but also provide the entertainment in the background during cocktail hour. Sean is professional, courteous, and very responsive. He can play a variety of music and knows so many songs as listed on his website. Sean delivered and we are very happy with his services. If you are looking for an incredible guitarist, singer, and musician for your event, we highly recommend Sean Cleland. Thank you Sean!

A Memorable Event Thanks to Sean!

We were so glad that we were recommended to Sean for our wedding ceremony & reception! He really helped set the mood and serenaded our guests throughout the night. We also received lots of comments from our guests saying how great the live music was!

Throughout the planning process and up to the day of the event, Sean was extremely professional and easy to work with. We also really appreciated that he was able to accommodate custom songs (which he did wonderfully!). We highly recommend Sean to anyone that is looking to add a lively, memorable ambiance to their event. Mahalo Sean!!
