Sean play's piano and contributes an arrangement of Mike's tune "Nata Lagal". This CD is a f#$ken OZ classic!

Lucinda Peters
"Desert Stars"
Australian Singer.  I wrote some string quartet parts. Lucinda liked the viola part best, so she just isolated that microphone in the mixdown.

Elana Stone
"In the garden of wild things"
Birdland label
I played piano and keyboards on Elana's first CD. Shortly afterwards I gave her a piano lesson and she decided to play for herself. I should have known better. Elana is a great composer and performer if you haven't seen her.

Steve Hunter
"Condition Human"
ABC label
Me and Matt Mcmahon and James Muller and Clayton Doley play keyboards on this CD.  Steve shows his tastefull British/Australian pop roots in the writing. Stacks of great singers.

Lily Dior

I composed the tune "Child" which Lily recorded on this CD.  Lily and the band reworked some of my harmony to their own tastes.

Luca Benedetti
Organ Trio
Recorded in New York, September 2002 with my good friend Phil Bernhardt on drums. A fine guitarist and appreciator of the finer things in life.

 Nick McBride
Seed Music
I wrote some tunes for this CD, helped engineer and produce, and also released it on my label. Well worth the effort to locate a copy .

 Tim Hopkins            
"Upon my Camel"
I play piano on this CD of Tim's. I miss playing with Tim. What a brilliant talent ...

Lily Dior
We used to play the song "Gimme some of that" in Banana. Lily wrote her own lyrics and recorded it. Some of my fondest musical memories are of Lily singing my songs. A standout in my mind which I will never forget is a little gig at the Hopetoun we did with Arne Hanna, Hamish Stuart and Alex Hewetson.


Sean Wayland was born in Sydney, Australia, June 4th , 1969 and resides in New York now. He is well known and respected for his prolific writing, and unique harmony and rhythm.??Reviewers have said:
"Synthetic but swashbuckling" : The New York Times
"Vast Technique and exploratory agility" : The Australian Newspaper
“Music Pours easily from Sean Wayland” : limelight CD review

Superman plays for keeps”: Sydney Morning Herald CD review

Sean Wayland has long been something of a legend among Sydney jazz circles”: Jazzgroove

But if you took the names of Brad Mehldau, Larry Goldings or Joey Calderazzo, he (Sean) is a player of the same high caliber”: Mark F. Turner, AllAboutJazz

His was a musical family, his father's love of jazz enabled Sean to hear the music of Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea and others as a young child. His father's mother Muriel Cohen was a concert pianist and the first Australian to perform Olivier Messiaen's Catalogue D'Oiseax publicly. To this day Sean is still entranced by Debussy and Messiaen. Perhaps intimidated by living up to his family's talent, Sean chose to study the violin as a child. His interest in the piano increased and as a teenager he fooled around on the instrument. The fact that he was already an accomplished fiddler and had a busy schedule playing with school orchestras etc meant that he had little time to practise piano. In his final year of high school Sean met jazz pianist John Bostock -- http://www.johnbostockmusic.com

At the time in Australia it was difficult to find out about jazz and John hipped Sean to the music of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and John Coltrane. After school Sean spent a couple of years at University studying Electrical Engineering, but the seed had been sown and he came to realise that his calling in life was to be a musician. Sean studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 1992 and 1993.

He has had numerous piano teachers including Mike Nock, Roger Frampton, Judy Bailey, and Paul Macnamara in Australia. In New York he has studied with Barry Harris, Kevin Hayes, Geoff Keezer, George Colligan, Sam Yahel and Bruce Barth. While at the Conservatorium he received the Jack Chrostowski piano award. In 1993 he was a finalist in the National Jazz Piano Awards at the Wangaratta Festival. In 1999 Sean received a grant from the Australia Council to study jazz piano in New York which helped him to relocate there.

Sean has worked for a number of internationally renowned musicians including: Allan Holdsworth , Wayne Krantz , David Binney, Madeliene Peyroux , Tim Miller, Ingrid Jensen, Jon Gordon, Dave Smith, Isaac Darche ,  Jon Iragabon , Dan Pratt, Ike Sturm, Matt Geraghty, The Three Degrees, The Dangit -Bobbys, Moses Patrou, Jay Collins ,Cornell Dupree, Jesse Harris, Sheryl Bailey, Gerald Hayes, Matt Marantz, Ben Eunson, Aki Ishiguro, Dale Barlow, Justine Clark, Phil Slater, Jackie Orsascky, Steve Hunter, James Muller and Steve Mckenna.
