Sean Kagalis.. Strum Diesel in SL began playing guitar and writing songs at 13. A year later he landed his first gig at an old rundown Daytona Beach, Florida gas station turned biker-bar dubbed Charlie’s. After receiving the approval of a presumably tough audience, Sean began to realize that being a performing songwriter was his destiny. Just a few years later Sean performed his song “.. and I failed social studies that year ” at the 1999 International Conference on Non-Violence, which was held at the Doctor Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The song is a narration of childhood experiences growing up in a predominantly racist community in Lake County, Florida. Personal experience is the primary source for subject matter in Sean’s work.
When he’s not lamenting his heartbreak, or the heartbreak he has created, his voice is dedicated to explicating socio-political issues that are constantly perverted or altogether ignored by mainstream media. Click here for Strum’s performance and interview on Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe.
Being the down to earth kinda guy he is we decided to match up Strum with Hobo Island for his Live N Kickin Performance.
SecondLife Hobos have a long history in Second Life and the group originates from Calleta’s Hobo Railroad and Information Hub. Bonehead Goalpost and her assorted hobo friends built Hobo Island is not as a replacement for Calleta, but to allow Second Life Hobos to expand their activities in social networking, teaching others, providing an outstanding sand box, and in reducing bothersome lag. Second Life hobos are also known to be some of the best builders around! Wait till you see Aitolda Cooljoke ‘s build ” Castaway Cove ” where Strum will be performing.
