"Saving Country Music"

Like many underground roots bands, Sean K. Preston and the Loaded Pistols aren’t just country. They mix in a healthy dose of rockabilly, surf, North Mississippi Hill Country blues, and serve it all with a dark punk attitude, punctuated with a grit and a growl which makes going to the concerts, or getting a snoot full of the music a more wild and frenetic experience...Sean K. Preston has been slaving at this for years. Raised in Australia, and cutting his chops playing music on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, he formed the Loaded Pistols with Christopher “Sparky” Spiridigliozzi on drums, and Cory McGrath on upright bass in 2013, comprising a roots music power trio with the moxie of a 1950’s motorcycle gang, but with moments of surprising lyrical depth and smart composition. Fans of Nick Cave and early Reverend Horton Heat, or Jesse Dayton will easily warm up to this music, but so will students of Robert Johnson for the blues aspects and progressions, as will some Americana fans via the songwriting. - Trigger

"Baltimore Magazine"

Stumbling upon Sean K. Preston for the first time gives you a little taste of what it must have felt like for record execs to discover Johnny Cash or Elvis Presley. This rough-and-tumble raconteur happens to sound a little bit like both of those legends, but he is a man of his own’s his honest-to-god storytelling—human tales, from hard luck to heartbreak—that we expect will put this new record, released via indie label Rusty Knuckles, on the map. Whether you’re from the Chesapeake, the Rockies, or the Rio Grande, you’ll swoon for old favorites, like the second track, “Homeward Bound,” and legacy-cementing newcomers, like the first single, “Last Call.” - Lydia Woolever

Sean K. Preston is an internationally touring artist from Baltimore, MD. The band's album “Forgive” was released on Rusty Knuckles Music and they are currently on tour, sharing their raucous honkytonk, dirty blues, roadhouse rock ‘n’ roll, and tear jerking country balladry.

The music of Sean K. Preston draws heavily on the influences of the classic heartbroken sounds of Country & Western music from the 1940’s - 1970’s, the honesty of the Blues by the likes of Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker, the bombast of 50’s Rock’n’Roll, the lyrical sophistication of musical poets like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, the raw energy of Punk, and the spirituality of Mountain Gospel. His own songs range from delicate laments and lullabies to fiery sermons and confessions.
