Sean's Blues"The disc is a captivating, swinging, at times haunting collection of some of Sean's best recorded work - both originals and a superb choice of covers. Costello had such a mastery of the classic 1950s Chicago sound at his young age, it's as if he'd breathed in the soul itself of folks like Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon. ... Musicians and fans alike will continue to appreciate Sean's decade of recorded work chronicled in this comprehensive collection."
- Dec/Jan 2010 issue of Living Blues magazine


Pepsi Refresh ProjectPEPSI REFRESH PROJECT IN THE WORKS!
The Sean Costello Memorial Fund for Bipolar Research will soon be applying for a fundraising grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project!


To do so, the Fund must show substantial support and one way to do this is to significantly bolster our Facebook Cause page with as many members possible. Please join the Fund's Facebook Cause page today, and spread the word to others who may be interested in supporting our cause.

Grant funding will be put toward the development of an internet application (tentatively called The Mojo Project) to monitor sleep deprivation and mania in musicians.

This is just one way you can support the Fund's mission: Uniquely focused on the needs of musicians with bipolar disorder, The Sean Costello Memorial Fund for Bipolar Research supports and conducts research on bipolar disorder and creativity while promoting awareness, providing education, and serving as a resource for these musicians and their support systems in order to foster acceptance, functioning and health.
