radio shows, satellite radio and internet stations who have
agreed to submit weekly spin counts. Well

equally proud to be joining the ranks of other young roots troubadours and
friends including Mike Plume and Fred Eaglesmith, who have also managed to

- First single release, "I'd
Rather Have You" off most recent Canadian release ‘Late Last
Nite’, went Top ten.
- Second year in a row won West Coast
Music Award for Best Country album.
- April saw a few weeks of
personal non career joy when Hogan became a Dad for the second time as he
and his wife Diane had Tess Alexandra Hogan on the 17th of April.
- Top twenty video with single #2
"Come Another Fine Day" from ‘Late Last Nite’.
- A recording/business trip to
Nashville in June inspired Hogan to release a debut album, ‘Ruled By
Mercury’ to the U.S. Americana music industry in September. This
went out to the Americana music industry including radio which has just
recently (as of time of this e-mail) placed Sean in the Top 40 of U.S.
Americana artists on the format at radio.
- Hogan has played every major Country
Music Festival in Canada including the Havelock Jamboree and the
London Country Jamboree to mention a couple from this past year and he
can't wait to do them all again.
- Hogan just landed what looks now like
more than one song on the forth coming solo album by one of Canada's most
prominent female Country artists, Beverley Mahood.
