Wiggins recently won 1st place in the R&B/Blues Category
Billboard Songwriting Contest. Congratulations!
Wiggins, a centered and attention-grabbing, blue eyed, soul diva is how
she's been described, but there's much more to Wiggins when she takes to the
gets in the studio. You will find that her recordings define her inner most
feelings at that precise time in her life. As an artist, Wiggins is making
waves! A song
from Wiggins past, "Jane and the Goats", is currently featured on the
critically acclaimed and award winning independent film, "God, Sex, and Apple
Pie". In addition, in January 2002, Wiggins song styling will be featured
on MTV's hit night drama, "MTV Undressed".
The summer of 2001 was a busy one for Wiggins. While recording her newest
CD, "Next Time Around", she toured the country opening for Sophie B Hawkins
and Jill Sobule, while hitting large music festivals such as Chicago's Market
Days, which hosts 350,000 people. She also performed shows in New York City, Atlanta,
Seattle, where she opened for Melissa Ferrick, and all throughout Southern California.
In Fall 2001, Wiggins graced the stage of the Houston Women's Festival, opening
for Patrice Pike, and hosted a variety of CD release parties. She then returned
to the Windy City with Linda Moss (harmonica) to play the renowned Hard Rock Café/Chicago,
along with other local venues.
Wiggins was recently chosen by SBS Records, founded by singer Michelle Malone,
to be featured on their first compilation CD, distributed nationally in Fall
2001. Wiggins was also included on GoGirlsMusic.com's CD releases, GoGirlsMusicFest
2001 & 2002. Two of these CDs include fan-favorite, "VW hatchback",
from her first solo release, "1000 Steps". VW Hatchback was a 2001
MP3 Hot Pick as well as a chart climber on their Alternative General board.
Sean also has been receiving radio play over the airwaves and over the Internet
waves all over the US and has been featured with live interviews and reviews
in both arenas. Cornell University radio recently did a full hour- long show
with live interviews and plays from her latest CDs, plus Sean will be airing
on Access TV, a NYC cable show, in Sept. 2002.
Wiggins has recorded with producers such as Michael Sembello, (Diana Ross,
Gerardo), David Campbell, (Alanis Morissette, James Taylor), Howie Rice, (Pointer
Sisters) and Genya Ravan. Her music and performances have been covered in various
industry publications including Bam Magazine and Album Network who wrote, "Sean
Wiggins, whose powerful vocals easily recall the best qualities of Janis Joplin,
Melissa Etheridge and Sass Jordan." Music Connection said, "Sean Wiggins
could easily be misidentified as a simple singer/songwriter, but what she does
is so much more. She actually takes you into her world and makes you feel right
