Sean Gough

Pianist Sean Gough has deep musical roots, attending concerts since age 2 and playing piano since age 8, drawing widely from American popular music and European classical music. Since age 18, Sean has worked as a professional musician. In 2007, he had the fortune of meeting veteran bassist Gene Perla, starting in an apprenticeship model that had mostly gone away decades ago. They since have played in groups featured across the United States and in Europe. Sean freelances with other bands and often accompanies singers, including operatic tenor Ronald Naldi (his grandfather). He wil appear as a sideman on several recordings currently in production for 2020.
