MTV EMA Nominee to Launch New Single on American Television Talk Show Live from New York City.
“(Are We) Doing That” is what MTV Europe Music Awards Nominee Oliver Sean will be asking a worldwide audience via a live Television Broadcast from New York City this July as the International music star gets set to release his brand new single and music video and kick off his Television and Radio Promo Tour in New York.
Jun. 25, 2013 - NEW YORK -- MTV Europe Music Awards 2012 Nominee Oliver Sean is getting set to officially release his highly anticipated new single ‘(are we) Doing That’ as he kicks off his New York Television and Radio Promo Tour this July. The worldwide premiere will take place on 27th July as Oliver Sean performs the song on Evan Ginzburg’s ‘Legends TV’ live from New York City.
The new song, which hits radio stations worldwide today, features Oliver Sean’s distinctive style of percussive rock placed on a bed of foot tapping Indian Tabla’s, lending this main stream pop/rock song the inimitable Oliver Sean world beat sound. Coming on the heels of his MTV Europe Music Awards Nominated Album and Music Video “So Good,” and his Vh1 Hit single ‘All I Remember’, this latest song ‘(are we) Doing That’ also sets the stage for Oliver Sean’s New York Television and Radio promo tour from 27th July to 3rd August.
The new single is now available for pre order on itunes where fans can pre order the new single and get the song on their ipods automatically on 11th August when the new song ‘(are we) Doing That’ will hit stores worldwide, with a simultaneous launch of his music video for the same song on Vh1's International channel.
‘(are we) Doing That’ combines Oliver Sean’s unique voice with a blended style of alt rock and world music elements driven by his rich heritage. “I attribute my style of music and its world beat elements to time I spent growing up in Goa, Dubai and London and my Mother’s favorite Portuguese music and her impressive pop rock record collection that I grew up listening to” says Oliver Sean, “but I think my rock sensibilities are pure American”. This worldwide influence constantly shows itself in Oliver Sean's superlative collection of tracks released through the years, which blend some of the best of good ol' fashioned rock-n-roll with subtle hints of world music elements to create an intoxicating new melange. The new single ‘(are we) Doing That’ captures the essence of Oliver Sean’s musical style.
One thing that makes Oliver Sean special is the restraint with which he blends these elements together. As a music magazine in America says “Any rocker from the Beatles onwards can throw random sitars or Brazilian Drums (Indian Tablas) into a song for effect. In Sean's hands, they act as spice – punctuating moments, bringing them out, and then just as quickly segueing back to more traditional elements” ‘Round Magazine, 2013, USA .
Fan’s can expect a music video for the song ‘(are we) Doing That’ to hit International channels on August 11th and a full length album worth of songs from Oliver Sean, which will be his fourth studio album in December 2013 “This plan of releasing a few singles and music videos followed by the full length album began in January 2013 when we released Oliver Sean’s new music video for his single ‘All I Remember’ on Vh1 and the success of the single and the video” says Wanda Alvares, Marketing Head W.O.A International “this is now being followed up with his new single and music video ‘(are we) Doing That’, which incidentally is also to be the title of the Oliver Sean album which we will be launching in December 2013”
Over the last ten years, Sean has ascended from local performer in Goa and Dubai to international rock phenom, playing tours across America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, including stops in New York, LA, London, Dubai and other major cities. His debut album “I Like It” (2003) was nominated for AV Max International Album of the Year along with albums by John Mayer, Third Eye Blind, Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams. Oliver Sean’s hit album from 2011 “So Good” got the singer an MTV Europe Music Awards Nomination in 2012, and his single “Movies” from the same album reached the Top 10 charts of Vh1’s International channel, placing Sean alongside artists such as Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Pitbull. Oliver Sean has also received his own feature spot on Vh1 Specials, a program that highlights prominent and upcoming International artists. His rise led Sun magazine to label Oliver Sean “The hottest international offering from the shores of Goa.”
In addition to writing and composing all of his own music, Sean has produced and directed music videos for himself and other international artists. In 1998, at a young age the singer/songwriter and Business Graduate in Marketing and Finance created his own label, W.O.A. International, to promote fresh and established international musicians like himself. Today, W.O.A International is one of the largest Indie record labels in Asia and the Middle East that help promote independent talent. Sean’s film endeavors include a soundtrack for a popular bollywood film, and he is currently working as the producer and director on a documentary about the importance of protecting endangered tigers, based on the book Once Upon a Time by Wanda Alvares.
