Sean Hennesy is a guitarist currently playing for the bands Candlebox[1] and The Gracious Few.[2] He has previously played for the bands The Hiwatts and The Kings Royal.


Hennesy originally joined Candlebox as a second guitarist for their live shows only, but he has now become a full band member and played on their 2012 album Love Stories and Other Musings.[1] He joined The Gracious Few after guitarist Chad Taylor claimed that he did not want to play solos and lead singer Kevin Martin suggested that his Candlebox bandmate Hennesy would be able to do the job. In July of 2014 he joined Royal Bliss as the second guitarist.

In a 2010 interview, Hennesy described his style of guitar playing as, "A high-cut karate sound that cuts through," which he felt would be well suited to accompany Taylor's "Big, fat, manly beast" guitar sound."[3]

On March 12, 2012, Hennesy played with three of his Gracious Few bandmates as second guitarist for the band Live when they unveiled Chris Shinn as their new lead singer at a concert in York, Pennsylvania.[4]
