Sean Ardoin - KICK ROCKS

Two-time Grammy Nominee Sean Ardoin is a fourth generation Creole Artist. He co-lead the critically-acclaimed Zydeco outfit Double Clutchin' and then started Sean Ardoin-N-Zydekool in 1999. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, festivals worldwide and stateside, performed live on BET’s Comic View, been featured in commercials, had his music in movies and on MTV's Road Rules, Real World, Fraternity Life, and Sorority Life. Sean's new cd, "Kreole Rock and Soul" is also a new genre he created to allow for creative expression outside of the zydeco idiom. He was recently the featured artist in episodes of CBS Primetime's investigative drama, NCIS New Orleans, Queen Sugar on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network, and Southern Charm New Orleans on Bravo TV. Sean represents both the rural roots and progressive future of Louisiana's Creole sound like no other artist. He's truly one of Creole Music's "triple threats." He's a rare combination of tradition, talent and creativity.
