Sean Danielsen (Smile Empty Soul) just unveiled a new music video for his single “Unsaid” which is from his recently released EP, Mind Control To Steal The Soul.
Danielsen shares,” ‘Unsaid’ is about holding in your emotions until you’re about to explode. I teamed up with J.T. Ibanez for the video, and it turned out great. The slow-motion feel matches the song perfectly, and the imagery brings out the lyrics in a very nice way.”
Sean Danielsen is an American Singer/guitarist/songwriter best known for his work in rock band Smile Empty Soul, and his solo material.
Sean started Smile Empty Soul back in the late 90’s in Los Angeles California, and in 2002 they signed a major label record deal with Lava/Atlantic. With Smile Empty Soul’s self-titled debut album, it soon turned certified gold with sales in excess of 500K+ and was spawning three billboard charting singles, including the biggest Rock/Alternative hits of the year: “Bottom of a Bottle,” “Silhouettes” and “Nowhere Kids.” And soon led to tours with Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Three Days Grace, and Buckcherry.
In between recording and road schedules, Sean began working on solo material that was a little “off the beaten path” for Smile Empty Soul, releasing his first solo EP Enjoy The Process in 2013 with producer Eddie Wohl (36 Crazyfist, Ill Nino, World Fire Brigade) for the six track acoustic record. Since then, he released Food Chain in 2014, Product of Isolation in early 2017, and now the highly anticipated EP Mind Control To Steal The Soul out now.
Sean Danielsen shares, “This EP is really different than anything I’ve ever released in the past, so I’m excited to hear what people think about it. It’s such a different approach than a Smile Empty Soul record and I had an absolute blast making it! I hope fans can get into it even if it’s something unexpected”
Sean is one of those artists that has carried on throughout 15 years of an evolving industry, clearing his own path along the way and making the art he’s passionate about.
