It’s been far too long since I released new music. So in response I have committed to releasing a new song every month. Along with the song will be a video, the lyrics, and the story behind the song. This will begin on my birthday (November 21st) and continue monthly for one full year. At the end of the year, you might hear me start talking about putting them onto something people used to call a record…


"But, after all, brains are not the best things in the world... Once I had brains, and a heart also; so, having tried them both, I should much rather have a heart."

- The Tin Man, from "The Wonderful World of Oz"








No Depression: The Tin Man Is Well-Oiled & All Heart

One thing is certain -- Seese has worked at his craft, molded it and shaped it into a style that works for him. From these tunes I think he has found his motherlode. So.....22 minutes of delightful excursions, journeys into the soul and some moderate kick-ass rock. Lots here to recommend it. When is the full album coming? Ah…just kidding. No pressure. The man has a stimulating showcase and there is an authentic air that comes with it. Yes…The Tin Man…he is well-oiled on “Too Many Lines,” and his heart is in-between every note he plays.

ear to the ground music: 2016 song of the year list

This artist is so talented with some amazing vocal blending and great songwriting. The way it all comes together though, with elements of old school country and new school pop, feels authentic. I was hooked by the intro, but love the entire song. If you’re a fan of bands like Needtobreathe or Green River Ordinance, keep an eye out for The Tin Man.

elmore magazine: the tin man gets to the heart of the matter

“One The Tin Man’s single “Already Gone” from the EP Too Many Lines, the singer-songwriter demonstrates an achingly harrowing venture into the throws of love. With a jangly-tinge paired with southern charm, The Tin Man reminds one of early Kings Of Leon.”
