Sean Croal is an upright and electric bass player born in St. Albert, Alberta. At a young age, Sean moved to to Doha, Qatar in the Middle East. Sean picked up the bass shortly after, studying under Qatar Philharmonic bass player, Matteo Gaspari. A brief brush up with bone cancer in 2012 encouraged Sean to move back to Alberta. After a full recovery (and a new knee) Sean continued on to study with legendary Alberta bass player Rubim De Toledo. Sean is currently taking jazz performance on the upright bass at MacEwan University, and hopes to play his part to grow and develop the Canadian music community.
