Welcome to Sean Barrette - Music & Words
"One of Canada's best songwriters." Grammy-winning producer Malcolm Burn.
Hey, welcome to my website!
My name is Sean Barrette, and I'm a singer/songwriter from Copper Cliff, Ontario (just outside Sudbury.) I'm a proud husband and dad, friend and family man. I hope you'll join my community, so please sign up for my newsletter in the bottom right corner!
HERE'S THE LATEST!
Work on the new Puckhogs album is nearing completion! (We just added tambourine and shaker! You know you're getting close when...) For those who don't know, back in 2013, me and a couple of songwriting friends, Chris Leblanc and Brent Wohlberg, enjoyed a little run to Runners Up in the CBC Song Quest for the Next Great Canadian Hockey Song. Our tentative release date is May long-weekend. LIKE The Puckhogs Facebook page and stay tuned for more news.
Now ALL of my recorded works - both albums and all radio releases and remixes, etc. - are available for free listening at Soundcloud. I'm still hoping you'll buy my music - but I get wanting to have a little taste first. Check them out, and if you dig them, hit the Store and buy my stuff so I can make more music!
At 71 years old, my dad, Guy Barrette, released his first single, You Don't Know Me, a cover of the Ray Charles classic. You can buy it at Bandcamp for just $2. The song was recorded and mixed at Artifact Media in Sudbury, engineered by Brent Wohlberg and produced by yours truly, featuring Guy Barrette, Peter Learn, Brent Wohlberg, and Sean Barrette. (Music and lyrics by Cindy Williams. Used by permission.)
There are a few options and packages with cool extras for download in my online store, including the the remix of Signs by Grammy-winning producer/engineer/artist Malcolm Burn. Here's a Northern Life article with some of the story of how we ended up working together.
Like everyone else, I'd love to change the world. So, I'm doing it the only way I know how - pursuing the freedom to be authentically me, and trying to change one person's day for the better, one song at a time. We're all in this thing together.
Brothers and sisters from every point of the globe - thank you for your support!
Peace and much love,
