Sean McGee - In just a few years, Sean McGee’s life has gone from the gutter to the penthouse.
The Sandusky native has become an Internet R&B singing sensation not far removed from the days when he was so down-and-out he found himself spending nights in a friend’s car. The 20-year-old McGee’s song, “My Story,” has been downloaded more than 12 million times on MySpace. A video of the song on YouTube has collected more than 500,000 hits. These days, he finds himself jetting off to Florida to do performances and working with some of the bigger names in the industry on his yet-to-be-released first album. McGee, who dropped out of Sandusky High School after his junior year, said it took him just 20 minutes to write “My Story.” “Because it was my true feelings,” McGee said last week by phone from a luxury condominium in downtown Cleveland that overlooks Lake Erie, where he’s now living with his manager.

The Womacks: Tony Schaffer, Haley Heyman, Cory Webb & Noah Heyman
The Womacks are a unique Americana Folk/Rock quartet from north-central Ohio. Although only two members of the group actually share blood, they consider themselves a close-knit family. They are brother and sister, Noah and Haley Heyman, with longtime friends Cory Webb and Tony Schaffer. All of the Womack’s live together in the same rural home and this closeness, aside from 150+ performances a year, has turned their recordings and performances into a tightly woven musical experience.
