Sean Tillmann

MUSICIAN

Sean Tillmann, better known as Har Mar Superstar, is a songwriter and performer who has traveled the world touring with his band. He evolved from his beginnings as a one-man show into a full-band revue that covers genres all across the board from R&B to pop to soul music. Citing musical legends like Prince, George Michael, and Elton John as influences, you can be sure his show will be something you'll never forget. 

Rickett + Sones

If you could have a conversation with anyone - past or present - who would it be?
I would love to have an in-depth discussion with Samuel Beckett. He's my favorite playwright. His existential leanings have always piqued my interest, since I was a teen studying theater. He helped me curb my angst and realize I could turn it into something visceral. Also, he used to drive Andre the Giant to school when he could no longer physically fit into the family car (Beckett lived nearby their small French village, and had a pickup). I find that story incredibly hilarious and sweet.

In moments of self-doubt or adversity, how do you build yourself back up?
I remind myself of all of the lucky breaks I've had that any other artist would kill for and try to keep the focus on working hard to achieve more. The self-doubt can be a crippling hole that takes weeks to get out of. It's also nice to remember that I'm the only one who puts this pressure on myself. The world isn't gonna stop if I take a little extra time between albums.
