About Sean Na Na

Sean Na-Na was the alias of indie popster Sean Tillmann, previously of noise rock cult favorites Calvin Krime. Born in Marshall, MN, in 1978, Tillmann was still in his teens when he formed Calvin Krime with singer/guitarist Jon Kelson and drummer Jason Ralph, debuting in 1995 with the EP Pretty in Pink; after returning the following year with Kids Incarcerated, the trio signed to Amphetamine Reptile to issue their first full-length effort, 1997's Dress for the Future. In the wake of the 1998 EP 3 x 3 for 3 1/2 Calvin Krime disbanded, with Tillmann issuing the debut Sean Na-Na single "Two of the Same Name" later that year; after a split single with Lucky Jeremy and a series of compilation appearances, in early 2000 he issued a split EP with Mary Lou Lord, with the full-length Dance 'Til Your Baby Is a Man following in the spring of 2000. A second EP, Return of the Unicorn, was issued later that fall. After taking a year away from the road, Tillmann unveiled My Majesty in the spring of 2002. Tillmann's fifth Sean Na-Na full-length, Family Trees, came out in 2007.
