Sean Christopher McGee

Barbara Jordon, a Film and TV Music Supervisor calls =ThunderHearts= Music, "Majestic and Soothing...a powerful voice in a new generation of music" Cathy Parsons of Mainlypiano.com says "His music has a very Cinematic and visual quality" Others have said "it's like music from a movie...Should be in a Cirque Du Soleil show!"

Sean Christopher McGee, also Known as "=ThunderHeart=  has been composing since he was five years old. "It's all my grandfather’s fault," he says. His grandfather, Dennis McGee, was a well-known Louisiana Cajun musician who had been taught to play the violin at an early age. This love of music continued with his late dad

Gerry McGee, (1937-2019) A successful guitar player who has accompanied such artists as Elvis Presley, Kris Kristofferson, Eric Clapton, and many more.

In his early years, Sean’s mother, Anne McGee, a successful singer/songwriter and children's author, influenced his piano and writing skills. His mother had purchased a piano for herself but it was Sean who constantly used it.

Before his mother had purchased a piano and somewhere near the age of seven, Sean, found himself a Grand Piano in the living room of his friends house. Sean, sat down and began playing a tune. He was asked by his friends mother, how he knew how to play the song he was playing? He had no idea what his friends mother was refering to. Sean had no idea he was playing to the tune of "Fur Elise"...... "I don't recall ever hearing that song before, I just knew how to play it or a part of it at least” He also took interest in a song he heard on the radio called "The Music Box Dancer" 

In his later years he was introduced to a music composing computer program called "Performer”, which was used on one of the very earliest versions of the Apple computer with a screen no bigger than 4x4 and a Yamaha DX7. So, with a few sound modules and a somewhat primitive mixing board, Sean taught himself how to compose. This desire and love of composition has continued to grow over the years. “As long as there are people who want to listen,” he says, “I will continue to compose the music.”

Sean has also been involved in film making and photography as well as the art of Painting. Sean Currently lives in the Los Angeles area.

Sean, released some music albums back around 2016 under the artist name "Sean Christopher" but soon after, other music artist with the same name began to surface on the music charts and so the music tracks were getting mixed with the wrong artist. He was forced to pull all of his music from as many sources. He closed up shop and waited for another time. A few years later he decided on the name "=ThunderHeart=" With the influence of his Native American, Irish and Maori ancestry, he felt this was a powerful name for his craft. "Thunder" with it's powerful sound that rumbles the skies and "Heart" as in, where the music comes from. With a mixture of melodies old and new, Sean is hopeful for a successful legacy in for his lifetime achievements.
