Guest Musician Sean Nowell

Sean NowellJazz Under the Stars is excited to welcome Alabama native and New York City-based recording artist SEAN NOWELL on April 25, 2019. Sean was born and raised in Birmingham, AL and studied at Samford University. From Samford, Sean went on to study at The Berklee School of Music and the Manhattan School of Music prior to beginning his full-time career as a touring, teaching and recording saxophonist.
