Sean Marchetti: The Yarra Street Project


  • Sean Marchetti: The Yarra Street Project

    Singer/songwriter Sean Marchetti describes music as his “salvation” during some significantly hard times. It was through necessity he developed the characteristic soul/blues/pop hybrid style that now defines his sound.

    Currently one of Melbourne’s most popular live music acts, Marchetti’s enviable career thus far has seen the 29 year-old play shows right across his home state; including numerous AFL functions, and supporting industry stalwarts: Jimmy Barnes, Thirsty Merc, John Stevens, James Reyne, and Missy Higgins on their respective tours.

    In early 2014, Marchetti bought a ticket to the USA, and travelled solo in an RV along the Californian coast. His intention was to play as many gigs as possible, without having locked a single date down in advance. Marchetti ended up securing himself an impressive 25+ shows in 9 weeks, playing in many fantastic Californian cocktail bars and venues.

    Before his US trip, Marchetti had been paving his way as a performer singing other people’s songs. However what the experience clarified for him was a desire to release his own material.

    “I was never going to pursue a solo career until my close friend and mentor Gary Pinto sent my demos to (producer) Dave Darling in LA. Within a month Dave flew over and we recorded all my originals at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne. We managed to get some of the world’s best session musicians on board too. It was very surreal to say the least.”Sean Marchetti

    Marchetti’s debut EP The Yarra Street Project, was launched on 1 July 2015 to packed venue nestled amongst the waterside drawcards that are South Wharf. It is a treasure trove of blues-infused production and layered instrumentation. Lyrically, Marchetti is a refreshingly authentic writer. The EP displays his adeptness with words through soul-baring ballads to rhythmic party tracks. With an acoustic heart reminiscent of Jack Johnson or Ed Sheeran, Marchetti’s soulful vocals work in tandem with his guitar.
