Sean Carey began performing at the age of 10, when he played “Dixie” in his 5th grade talent show, following a pair of breakdancers. The crowd went wild…for the breakdancers.

And sang some more. After graduating from college, he came back up to the northeast and was asked to front the band, Missing Digit, a name he hated from the start and never really got used to. But he did it anyway. The band began playing at many of New Jersey’s dive bars and strip clubs. Luckily, creative differences soon put an end to Missing Digit, though Sean continued to frequent the strip clubs.
Here’s where it gets good. After the Digit’s demise, Sean decided to
