Seawell spent her early years as a songwriter and singer performing at various concerts at military bases in California, Frankfurt, Germany and Japan. She learned to play five instruments - the violin, saxophone, bassoon, drums and guitar. Later her family moved to Colorado and Wyoming where she continued performing with local country-rock bands Silverton Station and The Tailgate Orchestra. She became a semi-finalist in the American Song Festival and won numerous awards in the Colorado Composers Classic. She was also a finalist at the Colorado/Wyoming Battle of the Bands.
Seawell later moved to Pacific Northwest where she was introduced to Tim Seawell, a singer and guitarist, through Musicians’ Association of Seattle and they got married in 1986. Later she was joined by her husband and the duo formed a band called Windfall. The band has released four albums and over 40 singles under the folk music genre.
In 2019, Seawell worked on a musical docudrama called Assam Skies which is a collaborative music project featuring musicians and artists from four countries including Karen Weed (poet) and Alice Banting from UK, Jim Ankan Deka from India, and Lain Heringman from Spain.
