Information of Har Mar Superstar

Sean Tillmann (born on 6 February 1978 in Owatonna, Minnesota) better known by his stage names of Har Mar Superstar and Sean Na Na, is an American singer. While remaining relatively unknown in his home country, he has found fame in the U.K. indie rock/dance scene. Often regarded as a genuinely talented musician, Har Mar Superstar is a character who bears several physical and behavioral similarities to porn star Ron Jeremy; he is overweight (though he has slimmed down considerably as his stage shows and frequent touring have become more physically demanding), he performs his shows nearly nude, and appears obsessed with his own sexual prowess. His musical genre is R'n'B music. He originally claimed to be Sean Tillman's twin brother, Harold Martin Tillman, from which he claimed his name originated. The name actually comes from a shopping center in Roseville, Minnesota called the Har Mar Mall. He went to, and graduated from the Perpich Center for Arts Education in Golden Valley, Minnesota. Har Mar is also the spokesperson for Vladivar Vodka, who produced a series of television commercials that gained an underground cult appreciation for their blatantly sexual content. Recently, Har Mar has become a spokesperson for Lynx brand deodorant in the UK. He has been involved in the promotion of the new scent, "click". He was no doubt chosen since image fits very well with the famous "lynx effect" marketing campaign which have famously portrayed the deodorant as being a major factor in attracting potential partners. Advertisements for Lynx bear vague sexual innuendo; some advertisements directly state that using the product will assist the consumer in seducing women. He made a cameo in the 2004 movie Starsky and Hutch as "Dancin' Rick", a disco dance champion who faces off in a contest with Ben Stiller's Starsky character. Har Mar also performed backing vocals and appeared in the film clip for Catch My Disease by Australia's Ben Lee. In addition to his own headlining tours, Har Mar has opened for The Strokes, Incubus, and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. In 2007 Har Mar Superstar supported the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their tour of Australia and New Zealand. Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes) & Tony Bevilacqua (ex-Distillers) currently serve as Har Mar's rhythm section, playing drums and bass guitar respectively. Har Mar supported Sia Furler on her entire 2008 tour -- with Denver Dalley on bass and Nick Slack on drums. As well as being a solo artist, Har Mar Superstar is a professional songwriter. He has written songs for artists including Disney's The Cheetah Girls, and his solo song, Tall Boy, was rejected by Britney Spears' management when pitched to the singer. His family still lives in Owatonna, MN where his mother and father work as educators. Har Mar Superstar is part of the live set-up of Neon Neon: the band created by Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys and producer/solo artist Boom Bip. Har Mar sings plus plays percussion during live shows and features on the recorded version of 'Trick For Treat': a song on the band's debut album, 'Stainless Style', which has been nominated for the Nationwide Mercury Music Prize award 2008.
