Sober, Survivor & Great Big Singer. Séan McCann, widely known as a member of internationally renowned band, Great Big Sea, has spent the last 20 years sailing around the world enamouring audiences from Copenhagen to California. Today his mantra is ‘help your self’, breaking the silence on his past addiction, abuse and using Music to change lives for the better.
Music is Medicine /Help Your Self (the Séan McCann Story)
My story is about surviving abuse, becoming sober, leaving the band and trying to make a real difference in the world. We all carry some kind of denial in our lives that prevents us from moving forward. We have to find the Courage to face our problems and Help Our Selves. We are all worthy of love and we all need help at some point in our lives. Music can help us say the things that are often just too hard to say. I believe that a song can save your life.
