Sean Panting is a singer songwriter from Newfoundland. He's a musician and actor , starring recently in the CBC show, Republic of Doyle. He released his debut, Lotus Land, in 2000 and it included this song, Mack Truck Grill. I heard the song initially on an East Coast Music Awards compilation. To date he has released 4 albums, his most recent in 2005. He's a prolific songwriter who can churn out a pop song with ease. Yet, true to his roots, he loves his rock and roll and recently released an album with a full band. Whether he's stripped down to an acoustic guitar or turning it to eleven, he does it well. He has won a few regional awards for his music in recent years and hopefully that translates into national attention. He has also shared stages with Ron Sexsmith (see 9/9/10 blog), Daniel Lanois (see 9/16/10 blog) and Billy Bragg. Unfortunately though, his discography is not easy to find. However, a local record shop in St.John's called Fred's Records has an online shop and his discography is available there.
