It's 3: ooam on a Sunday morning and Sean Doherty is rolling down the Pennsylvania Turnpike in an old Volvo station wagon. Doherty has just finished playing a festival at Lafayette College and is headed home to Annapolis Maryland. Long road trips have become a way of life for the former front man of the acoustic group Red Cabbage. Having played gigs from Boston to Minneapolis to Nags Head North Carolina, Doherty has found that he doesn't mind the travel, in fact he loves it. 'When I was at the Naval Academy I never got to leave town. I was always stuck doing Navy stuff. Now I am free to go wherever I want,' says Sean. Doherty, who has been compared to Elliott Smith and Aimee Mann, attended the US Naval Academy for three years before deciding that music was what brought him the most joy. After leaving Navy in the fall of 2005 he released the album 'Many Things.' Produced by Noel White (Dashboard Confessional, Art Garfunkle, Herbie Hancock) Doherty presents several stories of twenty something disappointment, love, and frustration. Doherty describes his record when he states, 'The songs are about my life and the people who are a part of it. Every song has a story which anyone can relate too.' It is this abilty to relate to his audience that has allowed Doherty to tour the East Coast college circuit with warm reviews. Having shared the stage with national acts such as Carbon Leaf, The Povertyneck Hillbillies, and Bens Bones; Sean has found that traveling and playing music are his passion. 2006 saw the release of Shamrocker a collection of B sides and unreleased acoustic versions of several of Doherty's songs. 'I was happy with Many Things but I felt like it didn't capture the acoustic roots of my music. I like Shamrocker just becasue it is a simple collection stripped of major production. The main thing I liked about this was the fact that I produced it on my own. I've played in bands and as a member of a duo, but this record is the first time that I have branched out on my own. It feels good not having to compromise my passion or vision due to the nit picking of other musicains.' says Doherty. 2007 will find Doherty back on the road touring the east coast. In May of 2007 Sean will be relocating to Denver Colorado where he will begin work on a new record set for release in early 2008. 'I can't wait to get away from Annapolis and the negativity of the musicians that I have worked with there. Denver presents a new journey for me and I look forward to making new music based off of that experience.' A proven road warrior Doherty smiles as the Volvo passes through Villanova Pennsylvania at 5:30am; he has the best job in the world. Well maybe second best after fighter pilot.
