Watching Toronto guitarist Sean Pinchin perform live it’s hard to see the separation between the man and his instrument. Each slide and bent note is delivered with a shocking balance of passion, intimacy and also bewilderment. Where does Sean begin and his guitar end?

His new album Rust Bucket, which will be released on November 12, illustrates the evolution of his music from rocker to folk/roots singer to becoming a bonafide major player in the blues scene, marking the start of what will surely be a long and exciting career. The confidence heard in his voice and songs are not without a history of hard work – averaging 150 shows per year Sean has worked tirelessly at promoting himself, gaining fans at a grassroots level.

Known for his emotional delivery, sharp wit, and often unconventional cover songs thrown in for good measure, Pinchin will be bringing his unique blend of folk/blues to The Foundry on October 18.
Pinchin’s show begins at 9:30 pm, cover is $5. For a sample of his music, click here to listen to Gotta Move and here to watch the video for Devil Got My Woman.
