"I've got a light. It keeps on shining in my mind. Day and night. It just keeps burnin' all the time." - Sean Costello, No Half Steppin'
Because of his unique interpretation of American roots music and his generous spirit, Sean’s passing has ignited a burning desire to keep his personal and musical memory alive and to translate the human side of his suffering into action that will help in research, education, outreach and treatment efforts for Bipolar Disorder.
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in a person’s mood, energy, and ability to function. Different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through, the symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe.
