Man of the Year: New Tunes from Sean Panting, St. John's Singer and Songwriter

"I'm the sum of all my fears. I'm the man of the year."

So says singer-songwriter Sean Panting, as he gets set to release his latest album.

Panting04.jpgThat CD will be called Man of the Year, and it's his first in nearly six years.

In the time since then, Sean has been busy acting (Republic of Doyle) and raising kids.

He's also written a batch of new songs, many of which reflect on the ups and downs of family life. Man of the Year was released in December.

Sean Panting dropped by the CBC studio, guitar in hand, for a session and chat recorded exclusively for the Performance Hour. (July 28)

Here's our exclusive video excerpt from Sean's visit to CBC's Studio F in St. John's:

Since landing on these shores in the early seventies, he's been one of the bedrock artists of the Newfoundland and Labrador blues scene.
