Josh Groban? That was my first impression of this cd. I am not saying that that is a bad thing, it just was not what I expected.
This is some of the best vocals I have ever heard on a self-produced Ep. Sean has a powerful soulful voice that sounds really nice. It sounds like Sean has a classically trained voice. He also plays the guitar, piano, keyboards, violin and percussion on the ep, a multi-talented guy in other words.
The first song out is "Let Me Go Down Quickly", which is a piano ballad that sounds like something Josh Groban would sing, or something from a musical. There are worse things in life being compared to Josh Groban vocally. The second song is a bit too country for me to really like.
Out of the 8 songs on this ep, 7 are ballads. The problem I have with "the Cannonball Ep" is that the songs tend to sound to similar, the tempo is a bit too low.
However, the vocals are great and this is an ep with lots of potential. I am looking forward to a full-length album

why have i just found this review? it is probably the worst review i have ever seen of sean's stuff. first, sean sounds nothing like josh groban...nothing! Second, the highlighted track,"let me go down quick", which you say is a piano ballad, doesn't even have piano on the track...at all! its like you are reviewing a different album. did you? you reference josh groban more than once is this review, so i'm guessing this a way for you to legitimize your love for him. But Sean and Josh Groban sound nothing a like. sorry dude! i love sean and his music, and am also excited to hear a full length. I agree with you, his voice is soulful. But thats about all i agree with you on. Better luck next time rickard!
