An Interview with Sean Ensign – Hi Nrg Bob

Sean Ensign is a well known name in the dance clubs all over the u.s. With the release of his 4th single ‘I wanna be with you’. and a visit to the u.k soon , I was lucky enough to pin him down for a chat.

 

  1. So Sean please tell your fans in England & Europe a little about yourself.
  • I am currently 36 years old. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio (USA) and the youngest of 7 siblings (2 of which are twins ”just not mine). I am now living in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
  1. When did you first discover you could sing & how did you get your break in the music industry?

 

  • I have been singing since I was very young. When I was in kindergarten, I had to do a duet with another student for the Christmas pageant. Since then, I have always loved to sing.
  1. Who were your idols & influences growing up?
  • My idols have been Prince, Michael Jackson, George Michael, Erasure and now Rob ThomaSeand Justin Timberlake.
  1. Who is your own favorite artists?
  • My own personal favorite artists are first and foremost Da Buzz. I LOVE THEM! Then it’s Kylie Minogue, Madonna and Fergie (yes ”I have followed her since Kids Incorporated)
  1. You have worked with top producers & remixes such as hex hector & Mike Rizzo. and well known artists such as Bonnie Pointer , Kristine w & Inaya Day. If you could choose anyone to work with who would it be?
  • Honestly it would be Kylie Minogue. I respect and admire here. It would be my dream to open for her and tour with her. She is amazing!
  1. Although you are based in the U.S., your sound is much more European. Is that intended? What hi-nrg style do you prefer; American which is a harder tribal sound or European which is much more traditional sound?
  • My European sound wasn’t necessarily intended. It just came from the heart and soul. I prefer European music over US music any day. I really don’t care for the tribal (potSeand pans) myself.
  1. Your best known track in the UK is a cover of ‘Everytime it rains‘ by Ace of Base. Was it your idea to cover this song & are there any other songs you would like to stamp with your unique voice? CD Cover for Everytime it Rains
  • Yes, it was my idea to cover the song. I wanted to pick something not everyone knew, but might recognize. For my new album, I have already done a cover of the Supremes You Keep Me Hangin’ On. There are a few more I would love to re-do like Rick Springfield’s Don’t’ Walk Away and Jeffrey Osbourne’s Baby Stay With Me Tonight, but that will come in time.
  1. What is the purpose of your forthcoming visit to England? And what dates will you be here?
  • The purpose is to visit my incredibly wonderful promoter Darren Eager of Liberty City Music and to show my face and talent in the UK finally (no pun intended). I have always wanted to go to the UK and there’s no better time than after releasing four singles (the fourth right now). I will be there 21 August to 27 August.
  1. When will the follow up CD to 2006′s finally be released? And can you give us a sneak peek of what to expect?
  • Most likely early 2009. I am slightly changing my style to add a more R & B groove to some of the tracks. But no worries, there will still be at least 5 high energy dance tracks like Feel the Music and Fly Away. Sneak peeks I usually don’t like to give away, but I always do new material when I perform, so those who see the shows get all the newest sneak peeks.
  1. And finally tell us a secret or little known fact about yourself.
  • Oh geeze, a secret. Ok, here goes. My favorite TV show is Charmed Charmed. I have probably seen every episode at least 20 times each if not more (that is 8 seasons of about 23 episodes each). It’s how I unwind and relax and escape stress.
