Album Notes
​Sean Mathews is a voice in a regional town in Ireland. His blend of Industrial and Traditional Folk music draws from the experience of growing up in the commuter town of Drogheda on the banks of the River Boyne. When playing with his friends in Rock bands, Sean had always found himself going back to Folk music by learning unaccompanied folk songs. During some years away in the West of Ireland in the Connemara Gaeltacht, Seans fondness for the works of Joe Heaney grew quietly along with his Sean-nós repertoire.

Recorded in a 300 year old martello tower called Millmount, Seans debut album Dreaming is Allowed features a mix of string instruments including gazouki, octave mandolin, 6 & 12 string guitar and bass. Carrying on from his debut EP Holding the fort, Sean tackles some subjects that cut deep into the fabric of society like in 'The Commuters Song'. Other songs such as 'Days of our prime' and 'Dreaming is allowed' allude to the reasons that woke Sean from a 5 year hiatus to capture his debut album.
