Keyboards, Vocalist, Actor
Original Member of 'Huey Lewis and The News'
Californian Born Hopper plays Organ and Keyboards.
Sean has played in bands longer than any other member of the News, his first band being the 'Round the Bend Blues Band'.
When Huey Lewis joined the Bay Area group "Clover" in 1972, Sean joined with him, and he traveled to England with Huey and the group in 1976.
Sean was in the studio for Clover's greatest musical success - backing Elvis Costello on his first album My Aim is True.
In the late 70's, Sean joined Huey and other future members of the News on the 'Monday Night Live' spot at Uncle Charlie's, following that with becoming a member of Huey's band American Express.
A mainstay of the News, Sean's powerful and inventive keyboard work has become a hallmark of the band's sound.
A co-writer some of the band's songs, he also provides backing-vocals on various tracks.
He lives most of the year in Aspen, Colorado, and also has a home in Mill Valley, California.
