Featured in American Songwriter, Billboard Pride, NewNowNext, and Aquarian Weekly, Seán Barna is helping define the art of queer storytelling through songwriting. NPR's Bob Boilen, host of the Tiny Desk Concerts and podcast All Songs Considered, said Barna is, "a thrill to see... wearing Ziggy Stardust on his glittery sleeve," while Barna's seminal EP, CISSY, was called "a brilliant, giant statement about modern life and sexuality" by Counting Crows frontman, Adam Duritz.

Barna, the former drummer of Deaf West Theatre's LA production of Spring Awakening and the national Broadway tour of Mel Brooks’ The Producers, plays drums and rhythm guitar on all of his records, and is the sole songwriter. He is celebrating the release his latest EP, Margaret Thatcher of the Lower East Side, out on May 29, 2020.

Margaret Thatcher of the Lower East Side was written in the wake of the national devastation that was the 2016 election, and ironically turns Thatcher, an enemy of marginalized people and the working class, into a queer icon. It begins with a melancholy choir of wordless voices, but soon gets to the point: the most potent way to fight back, as a queer or marginalized person, is to be more unapologetic, more fearless, and more of exactly who you are. It’s time for all of us to steel ourselves, make an entrance, and make a point, screaming back in opposition to those who would threaten our safety or legislate against our lives. Ironically named for someone who did just that, the album is a call to arms -- at one point begging God to “save the scene” and then realizing that the messiah just might be a queer songwriter in Denver.

Margaret Thatcher of the Lower East Side was produced by Seán Barna and Dave Drago (1809 Studios, Macedon, NY), with Tommy Sherrod (DC) and Kyle Joseph (NYC), and was mixed and mastered by Dave Drago at 1809 Studios. The album features Dave Immerglück of Counting Crows and Camper Van Beethoven, as well as Alex Northrup, Dave Drago, Tommy Sherrod, Margot MacDonald, Andrew Grossman, Alex Tebeleff, and Ben Zacharia.
