  • Seamus Egan – Early / Bright Live Concert – some thoughts from Seamus –

With live concerts and touring around the corner (early next year) it was wonderful to be able to gather with Kyle, Jenna and Owen to film and record Early Bright / LIVE.  Early Bright was borne, in part, from my rumination (excessive thought) on our need to connect and the way we adapt to change. The concert will stream on Fridays July 23rd and July 30th starting at 8pm EDT, and all tickets include an unlimited replay through the weekend. With a ticket you can watch from anywhere that weekend whenever you'd like! Like our Brothers McMullen concert, virtual meet-and-greets will follow both Friday night streams. Meet me on Zoom to talk about the process of making this music and ask any questions you might have.  Tickets @
