Sean Chambers and Granvil Poynter at Sam's Burger Joint, Friday Dec. 6th

"Chambers' brand of blues is a no-frills blend of Chicago, Texas, and Delta styles, played with an understated sense of ferocity. Sean came to wail, and he does so with a transparent sense of devotion and scholarship to the music he plays so well." - Mark Uricheck, LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE (Dec 28, 2009)

Sean Chambers toured with the legendary Hubert Sumlin as his guitarist and band leader from 1998-2003 and did several tours throughout the U.S., England, Ireland and Canada with him. Britain's own Guitarist magazine named Chambers as "One of the top 50 blues guitarists of the last century." After his tenure with Sumlin, he performed three more tours throughout England on his own, and in 2003 was asked to headline the prestigious Maryport Blues Festival there.
He was featured twice on "The House of Blues Radio Hour" after releasing his first album, Strong Temptation. His second album, Humble Spirits (2004), featured several special guest artists including Bernard Allison, The Toler Brothers and the late Bruce Waibel as guest musicians. The CD was produced and engineered by industry veteran Bud Sneider (Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule).

In 2004, shortly after his second CD release, Sean was forced to relocate when his home in Florida was struck by two of the major hurricanes that hit the state. After being flooded out of his home, he took a day job to pay for expenses and a new home, working every day for the next four years to rebuild his life, all the while still playing regularly around his home state to his steady base of fans. In 2009, Chambers went back into the studio to record what would be his most critically- acclaimed album to date, Ten Til Midnight."
