Beware of Xiren a Con Man from Colorado who has swindled International Music Star Oliver Sean and India’s Largest Indie Label W.O.A Records
The Colorado Indy newspaper carries Oliver Sean’s reply to Xiren’s defamatory blog post on Oliver Sean. This really is a good read and exposes the lies that the con man & fraud XIREN has been spreading about MTV EMA NOMINEE AND GRAMMY VOTER Oliver Sean
“(Are We) Doing That” is what MTV Europe Music Awards Nominee Oliver Sean will be asking a worldwide audience via a live Television Broadcast from New York City this July as the International music star gets set to release his brand new single and music video and kick off his Television and Radio Promo Tour in New York.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
W.O.A International (Press Release) – Jun. 25, 2013 – NEW YORK — MTV Europe Music Awards 2012 Nominee Oliver Sean is getting set to officially release his highly anticipated new single ‘(are we) Doing That’ as he kicks off his New York Television and Radio Promo Tour this July. The worldwide premiere will take place on 27th July as Oliver Sean performs the song on Evan Ginzburg’s ‘Legends TV’ live from New York City.
The new song, which hits radio stations worldwide today, features Oliver Sean’s distinctive style of percussive rock placed on a bed of foot tapping Indian Tabla’s, lending this main stream pop/rock song the inimitable Oliver Sean world beat sound. Coming on the heels of his MTV Europe Music Awards Nominated Album and Music Video “So Good,” and his Vh1 Hit single ‘All I Remember’, this latest song ‘(are we) Doing That’ also sets the stage for Oliver Sean’s New York Television and Radio promo tour from 27th July to 3rd August.
The new single is now available for pre order on itunes where fans can pre order the new single and get the song on their ipods automatically on 11th August when the new song ‘(are we) Doing That’ will hit stores worldwide, with a simultaneous launch of his music video for the same song on Vh1’s International channel.
‘(are we) Doing That’ combines Oliver Sean’s unique voice with a blended style of alt rock and world music elements driven by his rich heritage. “I attribute my style of music and its world beat elements to time I spent growing up in Goa, Dubai and London and my Mother’s favorite Portuguese music and her impressive pop rock record collection that I grew up listening to” says Oliver Sean, “but I think my rock sensibilities are pure American”. This worldwide influence constantly shows itself in Oliver Sean’s superlative collection of tracks released through the years, which blend some of the best of good ol’ fashioned rock-n-roll with subtle hints of world music elements to create an intoxicating new melange. The new single ‘(are we) Doing That’ captures the essence of Oliver Sean’s musical style.
One thing that makes Oliver Sean special is the restraint with which he blends these elements together. As a music magazine in America says “Any rocker from the Beatles onwards can throw random sitars or Brazilian Drums (Indian Tablas) into a song for effect. In Sean’s hands, they act as spice – punctuating moments, bringing them out, and then just as quickly segueing back to more traditional elements” ‘Round Magazine, 2013, USA .
Fan’s can expect a music video for the song ‘(are we) Doing That’ to hit International channels on August 11th and a full length album worth of songs from Oliver Sean, which will be his fourth studio album in December 2013 “This plan of releasing a few singles and music videos followed by the full length album began in January 2013 when we released Oliver Sean’s new music video for his single ‘All I Remember’ on Vh1 and the success of the single and the video” says Wanda Alvares, Marketing Head W.O.A International “this is now being followed up with his new single and music video ‘(are we) Doing That’, which incidentally is also to be the title of the Oliver Sean album which we will be launching in December 2013”
Over the last ten years, Sean has ascended from local performer in Goa and Dubai to international rock phenom, playing tours across America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, including stops in New York, LA, London, Dubai and other major cities. His debut album “I Like It” (2003) was nominated for AV Max International Album of the Year along with albums by John Mayer, Third Eye Blind, Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams. Oliver Sean’s hit album from 2011 “So Good” got the singer an MTV Europe Music Awards Nomination in 2012, and his single “Movies” from the same album reached the Top 10 charts of Vh1’s International channel, placing Sean alongside artists such as Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Pitbull. Oliver Sean has also received his own feature spot on Vh1 Specials, a program that highlights prominent and upcoming International artists. His rise led Sun magazine to label Oliver Sean “The hottest international offering from the shores of Goa.”
In addition to writing and composing all of his own music, Sean has produced and directed music videos for himself and other international artists. In 1998, at a young age the singer/songwriter and Business Graduate in Marketing and Finance created his own label, W.O.A. International, to promote fresh and established international musicians like himself. Today, W.O.A International is one of the largest Indie record labels in Asia and the Middle East that help promote independent talent. Sean’s film endeavors include a soundtrack for a popular bollywood film, and he is currently working as the producer and director on a documentary about the importance of protecting endangered tigers, based on the book Once Upon a Time by Wanda Alvares.
“(are we) Doing That” can be heard starting today on radio stations and online around the world. It is also available for pre order on iTunes and will release worldwide on August 11th along with a music video on International TV channels including Vh1.

A fantastic article in Oliver Sean by Indian Express
Times Of India – 9th June 2013 – WOA Records International founder/artist Oliver Sean (MTV Europe Music Awards Nominee & Grammy Awards Voting Member), was the judge at the 1st annual all Goa Dance competition ‘Bailador’ organised by The Times last week. Here is the full coverage from The Times of India (Goa).
Xiren (Seer-rin), a Colorado resident and local small time musician, begged to joined the WOA Records India Tour in 2008. WOA International being the charitable organization that it is felt pity for this wannabe and accepted him on the WOA Records India Tour. These are the real facts of how Xiren (Seer-rin) went on to cheat WOA Records and the founder Oliver Sean. Written by MTV Europe Music Awards Nominee Oliver Sean
W.O.A International – June 3rd 2013 – This is an official release to a defamatory blog posted by a cheat and con man called Xiren (Seer-rin) from Colorado USA. Xiren got accepted by WOA and was allowed to join the annual WOA Records India Tour in 2008 along with several other International artists from around the world. The WOA Records India Tour is an annual event, organized by WOA International and made available for deserving Independent artists looking for a platform to reach audiences in a vast music loving country like India. In the year 2008 there were unforeseen occurrences beyond our control that disrupted many events due to general security reasons in this region, resulting which a couple of our main booked concerts in two cities got cancelled. This resulted in huge losses to WOA but none to the artists because we ensured that the artists were given FREE accommodation with FREE buffet breakfast of a sumptuous spread of the best of the best menu choices in continental, Goan and Indian menus. All this in a well known and much respected 4 star resort the ‘The Sun Village Resort’ in Goa, paid for by W.O.A Records and Oliver Sean.
The artists were picked up from the airport in an air-conditioned car, given 4 star hotel accommodation with breakfast and free meals on days of the shows /media meets / TV appearances and other media related schedules. Furthermore subsidized meals were made available (lunch and dinner) for the days of the delay that occurred due to shows being cancelled in the two cities (Karnataka and Delhi) the reasons for which were not in anybody’s control, and involved increased security everywhere and many events were put on hold indefinitely during that year (April 2008).
Being a humane company and understanding that the artists had lost two shows WOA went all out to use the time and promote all the artists in a massive way and left no stone unturned to promote the artists . We got them interviews and promotions on all National newspapers , put up Billboards and hoardings across Goa and filmed a 4 part TV show documentary where the TV channel came to the hotel and interviewed each one of the artists and aired the program to add in the promotions of our artists in Goa and across India. We put together a press conference at a 4 star hotel in panjim where every top journalist was present and each one of them had a radio interview on a commercial FM radio network. All transportation was paid for by WOA Records and Oliver Sean during these 14 days, everyday, including refreshments and snacks when they were doing their press meets and interviews. A studio was made available for the artists to rehearse during this delay period. And all this was done for the WOA artists but unfortunately among the real artists were three rogues who took all these benefits got treated like stars, when they did not even deserve to get a spot on the streets or railway stations in any country, these were not musicians and possessed no talent, they were con man and cheats and had no experience performing live on stage.
Person who called himself Xiren (Seer-rin) along with 2 other wannabes namely Mana3 and DaveJ went on to run up huge room service bills amounting to 2500 USD for alcohol, lunch, dinner etc. Xiren and Mana3 then proceeded to leave the hotel at night after 14 days of living it up at a 4 star hotel perhaps never in their life time so far had the good fortune to stay in a place like this! Having received all their promotions and Vh1 airplay of their rotten laughable videos and national TV advertisements and ran away absconded NOT having played a single shown in breach of the contract they had signed with WOA for the tour . Due to their exorbitant bills they decided to slip away like thieves do. The hotel management was now asking them to pay for all their room service bills. The resort was threatening to lodge a complaint on Xiren, Mana3 and DaveJ and the WOA management too wished to do the same. Oliver Sean requested that it be put on hold for a day or two giving them the benefit of doubt. To our shock we find out that these artists had disappeared from their hotel rooms overnight with the help of a local traitor, who was employed by WOA International to help him and give him a platform to play on our WOA Music platform. This person’s name is Lloyd Paul.
We learned later that Xiren having slipped off in the night on the pretext of going to Mumbai for the 1st show that was in the tour schedule ran off to the airport and flew off to Colorado USA. A complaint was lodged and the police were looking out for him having been informed by the hotel about Xiren absconding from his room without paying his bill. WOA Records on the request of Oliver Sean then cleared Xiren’s and Mana3 bills for their Alcohol, Lobster Dinners, and Steak Lunches for 14 days. Xiren not only breached his contract by not performing for his shows but he actually went on to prove to everyone that he was a petty thief and fraud who came to India to represent Colorado USA and left in such a shameful way. He ruined his reputation here if he ever had any and the reputation of the state he came from in America. Xiren (Seer-rin) cheated WOA Records and founder/musician and MTV Europe Music Awards nominee Oliver Sean, for thousands of dollars. There are bills to prove this and police FIR’s having been registered at the time by the hotel and WOA Records against these thieves Xiren and the other 2 acts. Loyd Paul too was summoned to the Police station for his hand in this mess and several other messes he created for WOA Records.
As of date WOA Records has filed a Defamation case against Xiren (Seer-rin) a con man and thief from Colorado USA, however this person is registered as a foreign national absconding without paying his dues.
The lies now being spread by Xiren: This Colorado resident and scam artist is now using a pathetic LIE, he made up to gain sympathy and blatantly lying to trusting people and music lovers so that he can sell his album portraying a sorry pathetic picture of his ‘OH HIS MANY SUFFERINGS’ in India when the fact is that he had a free ‘all paid’ holiday in India at the cost of WOA and its platform. This pathetic loser goes on to self release a song of all his ‘sufferings’ in India and that he was so wronged by WOA Records and Oliver Sean that he was ‘inspired’ to write this album and people should feel sorry for him and ‘help’ him ‘ continuing to victimize himself he goes on to add that WOA Records and WOA International is not a real person or real company. This scam artist Mr. Xiren one of a kind con artist like no other … has gone on to say that there is no real company called WOA Records and that there is no well known artist in India called Oliver Sean. Well if this is not laughable we wonder what is. His so called blog filled with lies and the poor reader exposed to so much lies on and on goes further to state that he was put up in a ‘little hole in Goa’ for the duration of his stay and that ‘everyone was rude to him and bad to him’ and that he had to travel in horrible buses!!! all this a blatant lie a mere figment of his deranged mind. Read on to know the real story and how this con man has been using lies and more lies to gain media attention and using this to even con his poor trusting fans whose intelligence he has been disrespecting all this while. Surely no educated intelligent person in his/her right mind will believe his hogwash.
Please read WOA Records and Oliver Sean’s Reply to Con man Xiren’s Blog Post: First We must mention here that The WOA Records India Tour is in its 6th year of production with 5 WOA RECORDS INDIA TOURS featuring artists from all over the world from 2008 till 2012!
Coming to Xiren’s bizzarr claim that ‘Oliver Sean is not a real person’ and that there is no famous artist called Oliver Sean! We are amused and we feel sorry for Xiren. What exactly should one bother to say to this mentally deranged human? Its below our dignity to even bother to say anything to this . The MTV Europe Music Awards Nominated Oliver Sean is not only a well known successful breathing real human …he is also kicking arse of cheats and losers like Xiren. Oliver Sean the well known singer song writer composer and film maker is having the last laugh . Oliver Sean is also a VOTING Member of the Grammy Awards since several years now and A Vh1 Top10 artist many times over. ‘Not only Oliver Sean is a well known International STAR, he is a one of the greatest original MUSICIAN’ to quote some of his oldest fans.
The scamster Xiren also went on to post pathetic badly written blogs filled with lies about Jesus Aaron an original talented artist who was also part of the WOA tour in 2008 and completed the tour successfully.
Xiren, Mana3 and DaveJ were the ‘bad apples’ the dirty crooks from the USA and Australia who tried to ruined the WOA tour for us and other artists but instead they ruined their own reputation and of their own states and countries they came from, they left disgracefully. Not only did they try to cause problems and spread lies about the India Tour, but they even started attacking the other musicians for refusing to be part of their sinister plan to disrupt the rest of the shows that were taking place. The ones who refused to join contribute to their criminal intentions to ruin the tour had a good tour and since then have captured loyal fans here in India who loved their music and performances.
I think its time Xiren and his LIES about his so called “inspiration” for his album and the ‘sufferings’ he says he experienced and ‘the tragedy of his life’ in 2008 be brought out to the public and the trusting people. Please be informed that There was no tragedy! There was no Con! there was no ‘suffering’ or ‘victims’ as claimed by the con man XIREN and his comrades in crime. WOA Records India Tour was and is a legit tour we organise every year. Authntic Original artists love the WOA Records India Tour for its platforms. Every year we get thousands of artists requesting a slot with us ! We have had amazing artists on the India Tour and we are proud of what we offer independent artists like no other Music tour platforms offer any where in the world. We at WOA have promoted our artists and take care of them, much more than any other agency in the world ever does! We have gone on promotional tours when promoting artists and we can guarantee you that some venues do not even offer you a free bottle of water.
The India Tour started in 2008 is one of the biggest most well known tour in recent times. There are articles and documentaries done on the WOA Records India Tour that was conceptualized and till date produced by Oliver Sean and the wonderful WOA Records Team of musicians and music lovers who help us every year to organise this tour. We also have Vh1 who supports us every year and so does the Times of India and the Herald and The Hindu, Indian Express, Hindustan Times – all reputed newspapers. We even have the Government of Goa Art and Culture Department who supports the festival in Goa every year. And the Desousa group of hotels who support us by giving artists accommodation in their 4 star hotel called Sun and Sand. Just contact any artist from the WOA Records India Tour who has not tried to cheat and rob WOA Records and Oliver Sean and they will tell you that this is one of the best independent artists tours in the world and there is no company that takes care of their artists better than WOA Records.
This press note is to all the wonderful fans and the supporters of WOA International and the WOA Records India Tour and Oliver Sean’s precious fans, so that you know that this scam artist Xiren (Seer-rin) from Colorado USA is cleverly trying to slander the good name of Oliver Sean and WOA Records and WOA International with his lies on his website to gain sympathy and attract pity . The external victim lacks in talent buy is big in crooked clever tricks to lie to anyone who trusts him.
We could have ignored this but WOA Records and Oliver Sean are making a point to all others like Xiren who think they can take advantage of good people like WOA Records and Oliver Sean to beware, We will not let you get away with such lies and trying to slander our name!
This press note is also targeted to every reviewer and fan of Xiren (Seer-rin) from Colorad, who has believed this man’s story of being conned in India and how it inspired him to write this album and about the ‘hell’ he went through in India was the “inspiration” for his album. If you can beleive this lies then we have nothing to say to you just that you have been lied to as well. This person Xiren is a compulsive liar, desperate to be in the music industry and so will resort to any scam activities not giving a though as to who he mess with. He struggles because he lacks Talent and is not an original musician but thinks he can be one by lying and cheating others.
Oliver Sean and WOA Records spent thousands of dollars in organizing the tour and putting ads on Zee Cafe and Zee Studio and HCN (National TV Channels) and got Xiren and the other artists’ videos playing on Vh1. So effectively Xiren paid WOA Records 12.50 US Dollars (Twelve Dollars) for an all expense paid TOUR AND HOLIDAY to India and he has the nerve to call WOA Records a con and scam! This pathetic Xiren is a fraud and is a disgrace to Colorado USA and the Independent music industry. He is a fraud and a dangerous cheat who goes around recording cover songs and riding on names of well known artists to get a higher google ranking. We feel sorry for this struggler with a horrific mind.
All you innocent trusting people who know him BEWARE of Xiren (Seer-rin) from Colorado USA.
