There’s a Place (Independent)
Sean McCann’s solo projects have tell of a man haunted by a past, using music to heal his own hurts. Upon leaving Great Big Sea, McCann acknowledged a problem with alcoholism and a secret past of abuse.
There’s a Place, produced by Jeremy Fisher and featuring the beautiful voice of Nova Scotia singer/songwriter Meaghan Smith, is his fifth solo album, seeing him coming out the other side but always working the process.
Emotional and haunting, his lyrics and voice speak to all of us—anyone who has had their own struggles with alcoholism or mental health.
The ballad singer of Great Big Sea, and always known for his standout vocal strength, McCann now uses his voice to advocate for others who are struggling. These new songs have a hopeful and upbeat theme throughout, a sense of finding home that anyone can relate to.
“Today I am a not a victim, but a survivor,” says McCann, and his clear, pure vocals echo with resilience.
