As you listen to the songs some more, though, and they begin to permeate your brain’s listening receptors, you realize that you’re hearing a stylish genre of music you haven’t quite heard before, combining elements of jazz, soul, r&b, hip hop and rap, with swagger and attitude!

So, chances are, you’ll approve of the name that has been assigned to describe most accurately the genre of music we enjoy from Flounder Warehouse – Jazz with Swaggitude!

Seann started to write songs as a member of the Songwriter’s Club when she was at White Plains High School.

After a couple of years in college while pursuing a Music Education major in the classical voice department, she found herself wanting instead to satisfy her thirst for jazz and soulful music, and drawn to take jazz piano lessons for a few months.

It was during that phase of her time at college that Flounder Warehouse was born.

“Don’t wanna leave
Don’t wanna go
Flight’s leavin’ in three hours
And I already know
Gonna miss this place
Like no other place I’ve missed
Gonna miss these faces
Fillin’ in my days with only good graces”

When you do those thing you do
What I always wanted from you
But your heart says I don’t know
But I know you know”
