Sean Forbes - Deaf musician

The 28-year-old deaf rapper and songwriter from metro Detroit has landed a contract with Web Entertainment, the Ferndale, Michigan production company and label that helped break Eminem.
Sean Forbes has been 90% deaf since infancy, but that never stopped him from loving music. Both of his parents are musicians who played Motor City music in their home while Sean enjoyed the beats and vibrations from the music his ears could not hear, but his body could feel.
His MySpace Music page says Forbes is “an accomplished and passionate drummer, rhythm pours out of him, when he breathes, walks, types at his keyboard or hits his drums. Music is in his blood, his cells; it’s just the way he is.”
