<span data-contrast=”auto”>BENTONVILLE, AR – </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>A lot of great artists over the years have gotten their start from humble beginnings. Many of them, in fact, found their first big hits while collaborating with others at songwriting workshops or in songwriting sessions with other artists in the studio. Arkansas artist Sean </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>Essary</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> is on his way to joining those legends with his new hit single “Better at Being Lonely.” It’s a song he wrote during a songwriting class he took earlier this year wit</span><span data-contrast=”auto”>h the famous Ryan Tedder, front man</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> for the band One Republic and one of the most sought-after producers in the music industry today. It’s a song that captures infectious melodies and grooves that compel listeners to move their bodies, but </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>which is</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> set against deeper lyrics that will make listeners think more deeply about their own lives.</span><span data-ccp-props=”{}”> </span>

<span data-contrast=”auto”>“It’s about getting over a relationship or trying to move on and acknowledging that it’s not </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>gonna</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> happen</span><span data-contrast=”auto”>,” </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>Essary</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> said.</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>“</span><span data-contrast=”auto”>Since we can’t be together, I need to get better at being lonely. I’m drawn to the juxtaposition of heartbreaking lyrics and upbeat rhythms. Effectively</span><span data-contrast=”auto”>,</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> my goal is to make people cry while dancing.”</span><span data-ccp-props=”{}”> </span>

<span data-contrast=”auto”>Though </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>Essary’s</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> roots are in Bluegrass, the kind of music he’s creating today sits more in the lanes of Pop and EDM. He’s experimenting with the organic inspiration of electronic 80s </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>Synth Pop</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> and its fusion with other genres and sound. He said he loves how those sounds create a “sonic warmth and a commercial crispness” for the listener. He’s a big fan of artists like Charlie </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>Puth</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> and John Mayer, and said</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> that “Better at Being Lonely” h</span><span data-contrast=”auto”>as a little influence by the sound and style of Justin Bieber – specifically his newer single “Anyone.”</span><span data-ccp-props=”{}”> </span>

<span data-contrast=”auto”>“I just like something a bit more rhythmic because it’s not something I grew up with,” he said. “I like the warm-sounding synths and the big drum sounds. That’s where the 80s influences come from in my music. Then I combine that with strong melodies over the top.</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> Ultimately, I want to make music people can relate to and feel when they listen to it. I want them to have a good time, but I’m not trying to just create a party song that you can dance to and then forget it. I want to create songs that you take with you long after you hear it.</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> </span><span data-ccp-props=”{}”> </span>

<span data-contrast=”auto”>In addition to “Better at Being Lonely,” </span><span data-contrast=”auto”>Essary</span><span data-contrast=”auto”> said he also wrote the single “Dangerous” at the Ryan Tedder songwriting workshop, which he plans to release in the next couple of months. He said he has plans for even more singles later this year, as well. </span><span data-ccp-props=”{}”> </span>
