Sean Michael Murray is in the band 'Evaride' about to tour with the release of their latest 'What's It All For'. He's the cutie in the middle.

Sean is from South Portland where his parents still are. I'm sorry, I meant to say, proud parents.

EVARIDE debuted last August with their single "Heartless," and quickly racked up over two million streams on Spotify, unheard of for most emerging artists. Combining Sean's vocally trained Broadway background with Josh's up tempo beats playing sold out stadiums for over 5 years and Hayden's self-taught guitar riffs that have impressed artists and music directors twice his age, the band is truly the best of all worlds.


The trio consists of drummer Josh Devine (drummer for arguably one of the biggest groups of the generation, One Direction), guitarist Hayden Maringer (touring guitarist for Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Bebe Rexha, Cody Simpson, and many more), and singer Sean Michael Murray (Broadway's "American Idiot"). While Josh was on tour playing drums for One Direction, he met American guitarist, Hayden Maringer, who was performing in the opening act on the international "Take Me Home" tour in 2013. Three years later, they decided to form EVARIDE when they met their singer, Sean, who made his Broadway debut in Green Day's Grammy Award-winning show, "American Idiot" alongside Billie Joe Armstrong. As the band formed, the name stemmed from Josh's passion and support for the charity Food For the Hungry.

He had been sponsoring a child through the program. The boy's name was Evaride and the group decided to keep that as their name.  Josh even auctioned off his drum kit from One Direction to help raise 70,000 dollars for the cause. 

Check out their latest...and keep an eye and ear out for Evaride...
