Sean Watkins

Performing: 1/24 3:20pm

Sean Watkins is a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter widely known as the guitarist for Grammy award winning band Nickel Creek.

Since 2008, when Nickel Creek began a 5 year hiatus, Sean has been stretching out artistically in forming the acoustic folk/pop band Fiction Family (along side Jon Foreman of Switchfoot) co-writing and co-producing 2 records, "Fiction Family"(2009) and "Reunion"(2013). During that time, Sean also assembled the eight-member Americana supergroup WPA (Greg Leisz, BenmontTench, Pete Thomas, Davey Faragher, Glen Philips, Luke Bulla and Sara Watkins)

For the last 10 years, Sean and his sister Sara along with their house band have held a monthly residency at Hollywood’s legendary Largo at the Coronet. “The Watkins Family Hour”, a mostly music and sometimes comedy variety show of sorts, regularly features a wide array of regular special guests such as Fiona Apple, Jackson Browne, Gillian Welch, Booker T., Ed Helms, Andrew Bird, Nikka Costa, Blake Mills, and John C. Reilly to name a few.

On February 18th 2014, Sean will release his fourth solo record “All I Do Is Lie”, his first solo record in 8 years.
