4DrummersOnly Follow Up: Sean Quigley, Canada’s Little Drummer Boy, Is Going Hollywood

Sean Quigley, Winnipeg‘s Little Drummer Boy, has earned the attention of an L.A. talent agent, MacRay Artist Management .

Quigley played all the instruments, sang the vocals, recorded everything and shot, directed and edited the video.

Within 24 hours of being posted it had been viewed over 4,000 times and started getting a social media buzz, with people posting it on Facebook and Twitter.

It has now earned nearly one million hits.

Quigley’s dad Bill told CBC News that talent manager Jason MacRay contacted him and said he wants to help make Sean a star.

“[He’s] trying to get him some more exposure in the United States, number one, because we’re going great here in Canada. And number two, if he could land a record deal for Sean that would be on the top of his list, too.”

Bill said he’s always been aware of his son’s talent but the sudden surge in attention is taking some getting used to.

“He’s always had a real gift for that and we’ve certainly supported that over the years so, am I totally surprised this has happened? No. But we are surprised, you know what I mean?” Bill said.

He noted there was a chance his son would be on the Rosie O’Donnel talk show but the producers ran out of space for the Christmas season.

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.
