Sixteen year-old Sean Quigley racks up 800,000 views in 1st week, Goes Viral with ‘Little Drummer Boy’ Video!

(Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2011) Sixteen year-old Sean Quigley, of Winnipeg Canada, posted his video version of the classic Christmas carol ‘Little Drummer Boy’ and a week later (at the time of this release) hit 800,000 views. Having played every featured instrument, sung every word, mixed every note, directed every shot, and edited every cut, the video is proving to the world that Quigley is (as Simon Cowell would say) “the complete package.”

Sean had no idea the video would be so popular, but as fans sprung up from all over the globe the newly minted overnight success scrambled to launch his official web-site, Twitter and Facebook pages this morning (Monday). After getting a call from a Los Angeles talent manager who signed Quigley on the spot, Sean seems to have everything going in the right direction. But don’t be fooled. All the attention hasn’t blinded Sean from the true reason he ever picked up a guitar or sat behind a set of drums: he is here to inspire and influence through his art.

Sean is currently available for interviews and will be in the Los Angeles area in the coming week.
