Welcome Walk the Moon!

Sean Waugaman and Walk the Moon Join Our Family

September 15th 2014 New York, NY – We are very excited to welcome Sean Waugaman and Walk the Moon to our growing family of artists. Sean’s passion for music was evident early on.  Before becoming the drummer for what would become the Ohio alternative powerhouse: Sean played piano for seven years. After saving enough money he was finally able to afford a kit of his own.
              In his early playing he gravitated towards heavier genres, namely John Bonham and Dave Grohl. In high school, Jazz became a major influence musically after studying with Reggie Jackson (Diane Schuur, Dr. John). He would further his musical education and major in Jazz Studies at Ohio State University under the direction of Joe Ong.

Sean is a very talented individual, and a well rounded musician. In addition to drum duties, he also sings. Masters of Maple owner Sahir Hanif on Waugaman, “When I was introduced to Sean by one of our artists, Martin Diller [HolyChild]: I was thrilled. I had been such a fan of the walk the moon from when they first came out on the scene. Sean is a tasteful drummer, and adds another layer and texture when he sings. I am so excited to have him on board, and am looking forward to a great future together.”
             Walk the Moon formed in early 2008, and achieved mainstream success with their self-titled debut album. The song “Anna Sun” continues to be a favorite of radio stations throughout the US. Recently Sean and co. completed their sophomore effort with acclaimed producer Tim Pagnotta, and is due out early 2015.
             Sean will be playing our flagship line of drums: the limited series, along with a bell brass snare drum. An additional touring rig consisting of Neo classic series drums is in the works as well.

He will make his television debut with Masters of Maple Drums on late night with Seth Myers [ latenightseth ] on 9/15/2014. Walk the moon will be performing their new hit single, “Shut up and Dance.”  . [Please check local listings for airtimes]

                An initial promotional tour will begin in Seattle on October, 8th 2014.
