Bassist and composer Sean Hicke took the long path to finding the upright bass. His musical upbringing included playing a variety woodwind and string instruments in punk bands, folk groups, wind orchestras, and musical theater pits before finally picking up what would become his primary instrument. He quickly became a common sight in the San Diego jazz scene and has played in almost every venue that hosts jazz in the city. After a brief stint in Cincinnati, Sean moved to Brooklyn where he currently resides. An avid composer, it did not take long for Sean to develop a unique compositional voice. His music is influenced by a myriad of sources, including modern jazz, drum and bass, folk music, and indie rock. His debut album, Sunflower Sutra, blends all of these influences into one cohesive sound and was nominated for best jazz album at the 2020 San Diego Music Awards. Sean holds a bachelor's degree in jazz studies from San Diego State University. He maintains a small private studio and can be found playing all over New York.
