From the Promoter
The music of [SEBELL] is carefully-crafted pop sonics that fray in all the right places to let its authentic soul sway naturally.
So who is [SEBELL]? From his native Canada, to Nashville, and across to Los Angeles; he is a modern nomad chasing the meaning of this world through his art. Each experience becomes a new piece of the puzzle, one that deepens his sense of the world that nothing is plain.
In his debut single, PROMISELAND, [SEBELL] steps confidently forward into the nouveau R&B sound that is dominated by the likes of The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and The Neighbourhood in a way that entirely transforms the landscape into his own territory.
Listening to his follow up single, TILL THE SUN BURNS OUT, there is no question that [SEBELL]’s music is palpably unique. There are a multitude of layers to his music that challenge listeners with complexity that is rarely seen in “pop” artists of current.
Sara Diamond (Born January 5, 1995) is a Canadian singer/songwriter from Montreal, Quebec. She is best known for her singing of the American National Anthem for the Montreal Canadiens during the 2013/14 and 2014/15 NHL Playoffs. On March 14, 2016, Sara released her first single, Just Give In. It became available for digital streaming on SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, and every digital retailer.
Sara started her career in 2000 (age 5) when she sang for children's record label KIDZUP. In 2008, she released her self-titled debut album under Vatikan Records. During that time, she performed at various events, including ONE X ONE and Future Electronics' Christmas party, opening for Roberta Flack.
In 2009, she auditioned and became the new member of the Clique Girlz, a girl group signed to Interscope Records under Jimmy Iovine. The group split up in April 2009.
In 2013, Sara started singing for the Montreal Canadiens, performing the American and Canadian National Anthems during the 2013 season, then going on to sing the American National Anthem during the 2014 and 2015 NHL Playoffs alongside Ginette Reno.
On March 14, 2016, Sara released her first single, "Just Give In". The song premiered on music blog Noisey, which helped garner a buzz and lead to multiple other blog mentions and writeups. Pop production duo Noah Barer & Cavewerk (JUS POP) produced the track and released it through their SoundCloud page.
On November 11th 2016, Adventure Club released their single "Firestorm", featuring Sara. It is the first single off their debut album, Red // Blue, being released on December 2nd, 2016.
Born on the banks of the Okavango River, Namibia, Francois Klark was instilled with plucky optimism, leading him on a path of gutsy resilience and musical greatness. His first few years were spent along the Caprivi Strip, and the rich local culture imbued him with a steely presence and a discerning ear for rhythm and melody. His debut single “Spaceman” is a fantastical mixture of spacey Coldplay acrobatics and a stunning John Legend nuance.
The South African native draws much of his work from traditional folk music and indigenous songs. “Last night, in my dreams, I set off a flare to guide you,” he muses on “Spaceman,” which slinks between brittle vulnerability and stormy resilience. “I will search for you / To the edge of the stars, I will fight for your heart,” he comforts, a rather sticky-sweet addiction to love.
“No journey too far,” Klark reflects on his splashy debut single, released August 2017. The track is ripped from his forthcoming first full-length album. Klark contains a world of masterful compositions: both familiar and refreshing. Meanwhile, his vocal is undeniable, sharply-dressed onto the storytelling lyrics, and you feel the weight of every single syllable. He pours his heart out, and we’re just along for the ride.
Klark is a Universal Music Award winner and has shared the stage with such acts as Grammy winner Jon Bellion. Klark's forthcoming debut album is expected January 2018.
