Sean Huber is currently the drummer of Philadelphia's punk rock/indie band Modern Baseball and two-piece punk/rock band Vicky Speedboat. Born in Verona, New Jersey, Sean picked up the drums at age 11, inspired by the California and New York punk and pop punk of the 90s and early 2000s. After entering high school, he got his feet wet playing with early-Beatles style band The Bootleg Flyers, which he performed his first DIY shows around North Jersey until he began college. Once time came to go to university, his interest in film and music brought him to Drexel University in Philadelphia. As a film student, Sean quickly got involved with shooting music videos and live shows and eventually joined indie rock band Wild Rompit. His tenure with Wild Rompit provided his first experiences with DIY touring and took him around the east coast in a Ford Econoline, which would soon become the norm. 

 After a few years with Wild Rompit, Sean began his solo career as the singer/songwriter known as Steady Hands. Playing solo gigs in Philly basements, he befriended Brendan Lukens and Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball, who would soon ask him to join the band alongside bassist Ian Farmer shortly before releasing their debut SPORTS in 2012. Modern Baseball would go on to enter the budding Philadelphia DIY scene and eventually tour the country in support of their debut. Shortly after, the band signed to Run For Cover Records and released their sophomore LP "You're Gonna Miss It All" in 2014, which would lead to a rigorous schedule of U.S. and international touring. In between Modern Baseball tours, Sean found the time to release 4 separate EPs under the Steady Hands moniker, filling out the band with fellow Philly and NYC musicians, and also touring both the U. S. and internationally. 

 Before entering the studio to record the most recent Modern Baseball record, Sean teamed up with fellow Philly musician Will Lindsay to record the debut Vickie Speedboat EP, which they released in 2015 and would later tour in the U.K.. Shortly after, Modern Baseball would release their 3rd record, "Holy Ghost", to great critical success and continue to tour the U.S. and Europe.

Sean is currently touring with all three projects, balancing his time on the road with his time at home with his wife and dog in Philadelphia. Sean plays Regal Tip's Naked Groovers, as well as SJC Drums, Zildjian Cymbals and DW Hardware.
