    Sean Costello: April 16, 1979 -- April 15, 2008

    Sean Costello's outward personality was that of a normal, albeit talented and charismatic child and young man. Despite his innate shyness, he rose to the highest ranks of the blues world, playing with the icons of diverse genres of music. He captured the hearts of people around the world who came to love and admire him. What was not visible was the internal struggle that accompanied his creativity and prodigious talent - a struggle which was later diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder. Because of his unique interpretation of American roots music and his generous spirit, Sean's passing has ignited a burning desire to keep his personal and musical memory alive and to translate the human side of his suffering into action that will help in research, education, outreach and treatment efforts for Bipolar Disorder. http://www.seancostellofund...

    What can you say about Sean Costello? That he was a brilliantly talented, inspirational bluesman who died WAY too soon on April 15, 2008, the eve of his 29th birthday... that he seemed destined to carry the blues torch gloriously into the middle of the 21st century... that he possessed a profound wealth of knowledge, love and respect for the giants of blues, jazz, gospel and soul, along with enough inner fire and passion to keep personalizing and reinventing the music, pushing its boundaries while always keeping it vibrant, keeping it true... that he was a sweet, shy kid who felt most at home with a guitar in his hands... a generous spirit, always quick to reach out a hand to someone in need, who meant the world to the family, friends and fans who loved him so much.
