Sean Ardoin

biography

The Ardoin name is one of the most revered in Creole and Zydeco music. Sean Ardoin’s family legacy started with legendary Creole musician Amédé Ardoin, whose songs are the foundation for Cajun and Creole music; followed by Bois Sec Ardoin, one of the best-known practitioners of the state’s rural Creole sound for six decades; and his father, Lawrence “Black” Ardoin. After co-leading the critically acclaimed Zydeco outfit Double Clutchin’, Sean set out on his own musical journey in 1999.

Sean has performed everywhere including Carnegie Hall, festivals in Europe, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, BET’s live segment on “Comic View” Southern Charm New Orleans, Bravo show “Queen Sugar,” Oprah’s OWN network, CBS primetime crime drama “NCIS: New Orleans” and most recently on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” His music has been featured in commercials, movies and on MTV’s “Road Rules,” “Real World: New Orleans,” “Fraternity Life” and “Sorority Life.”

Sean represents the roots and progressive future of Louisiana’s Creole Zydeco sound like no other artist. A rare combination of tradition, talent and creativity, he started a new genre called Kreole Rock and Soul in order to express his artistry without the confines of the traditional Zydeco idiom.

He sees a bright future for his band and brand. With his latest album, “VEN,” and his two recent Grammy nominations, Sean is ready to bring that Kreole flavor to you with all the spice you can stand.
