Happy Holidays From The Sean Costello Memorial Fund


If you haven't donated and wonder why people do donate to the Fund, just listen to the words of Stasia Ogden, a huge fan of Sean's and one of the Fund's biggest donors: 

Stasia Ogden first heard Sean at Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz, California in 2003 and has been a fan ever since. When Sean's sang "Feel Like I Ain't Got A Home" it was as if her feelings had been set to music. "When the stresses of life and work built up, I used to go to Sean's website and check his concert schedule. Even if it was 3-4 months away, just planning travels to see Sean and the band in person would make life seem easier. I attribute Sean with teaching me that there can be "better living through music". I hope others see this too."

Stasia is the Associate General Counsel and Chief Intellectual Property Counsel
for Baxter Healthcare Corporation in Deerfield, Illinois.

Sean's passing has ignited a burning desire to keep his personal and musical memory alive and to translate the human side of his suffering into action that will help in research, education, outreach and treatment efforts for Bipolar Disorder.

The Perfect Way to Donate and Get a Present in Return: 

The 16-song compilation compact disc features previously unreleased live material recorded in the U.S. & Europe from 2000-2007. A portion of the royalties from the sale of the album will benefit The Sean Costello Memorial Fund for Bipolar Research. 

"It's never too late for a significant recording to surface, especially for a blues artist so utterly devoted to the genre. What matters most when it comes to music isn't necessarily the beginning, the middle or the end. It's all about those notes and the moments in between."
- Greg Victor, 

"Nothing disappoints here. Some of the sound is admittedly taken from audience tapes, but that only enhances the gritty flavor that comes through as Costello is featured playing songs by blues masters from T-Bone Walker to Lowell Fulson to Magic Sam to Little Richard. He rocks, he swings, he sears the air with tough, exciting guitar. The album stands as a righteous ode to Costello's massive but unfulfilled talents."
