Atlanta blues guitarist and singer/songwriter Sean Costello was found dead Tues., April 15, on the eve of his 29th birthday in a local hotel. The cause of death is unknown.
From an early age, his guitar playing drew major accolades. Before he could graduate from high school, he was recording with Susan Tedeschi and eventually earning the respect of legends like B.B. King.
âAll I ever wanted to do was play the guitar well and Iâve been fortunate to be able to make a good living doing it,â Costello reportedly said in one of his last interviews.
In a statement, Costello's label president, Robert Fitzpatrick of Delta Groove said:
âLosing someone as young, talented and vibrant as Sean, who has accomplished so much in just a few short years and still had so much potential is a terribly difficult blow.
"Sean had friends and fans around the world and was unanimously praised, by critics and fans alike, as one of the main torch bearers of the blues flame.
âNow that potential will go sadly unfulfilled.â
On his MySpace page, the first song posted is Costello's version of "Going Home," from his '08 release We Can Get Together. It's a poignant reminder of the old soul Costello contained within his young body during his short time on Earth.
