“Sean McCollough has that X factor - his music is joyful, engaging, sweet, creative, illuminating, and memorable, and rises to the top overtime. It worms its way into your ears, and lifts your heart. I love Sean’s voice, and I love his take on the world. Like the classic children’s and family music you already love, this music will keep both the adults and the kids happily singing along on repeated listenings. Prepare for a wonderful new addition to the soundtrack of your family’s life!"
~ Award-winning children's musician Billy Jonas
"Earworm is a collection of earworms from start to finish"
~ Americana Highways
"Earworm is a wonderful and quirky album that is fun for the whole family."
Sean McCollough's Earworm release taps into the deep musical heritage of East Tennessee's native folk and Americana traditions, while not being too precious about it. Using real musicians who can really play, the songs are educational and FUN! And yes these tunes DO stick in your head. From the land that brought us the Carter Family, McCollough builds on that history and expands it.
~ Jason Ringenberg (aka Farmer Jason)
