The Electric Arbour with Sean Beaver
Originally from the Driftpile First Nation in northern Alberta and of Cree descent, Sean has been creating and producing music since 1993. Using music as a creative outlet, Sean’s first recorded single was released in 1996 and was globally distributed.
Since then, Sean has developed and enhanced his skills on the turntables and is now known for his exciting and energetic performances. As part of distinguished Indigenous hip hop group REDDNATION, Sean toured North America, spreading music and inspiring Indigenous youth. Sean was a key member of the group, performing as DJ Hooligan and serving as tour manager / sound technician from 2002 until the group retired in October 2013.
Wanting to go back to his roots, Sean returned to work on original music in 2012. In 2013, Sean released his first original, solo album, Project: Axiom. The album saw critical acclaim, winning Best Instrumental CD at the Aboriginal People’s Choice Awards that summer.
Listen to Sean Thursday nights at 9 as he features Indigenous Electronica music with the Electric Arbour on 89.3 The Raven
