NEW YORK, NY (October 2, 2017
) — London based singer/songwriter/ producer and engineer Jahna Sebastian releases her much anticipated new album ‘The Alchemist‘. The album features her critically acclaimed singles ‘Aftermath,’ ‘Fearless‘ and her recently released ‘When Love Shows Light’. All three singles were written, recorded, produced, arranged and mixed by Ms. Sebastian at her studio Multivizion Music. The project was a one woman project, everything created was done by Ms. Sebastian. The album features beats that you can dance to in the club and at festivals while listening to a powerful message at the same time.
Ms. Sebastian’s goal has always been to motivate, inspire and encourage people around the world to not limit themselves. Ms. Sebastian does everything herself in her humble studio. She doesn’t have a machine behind her but you would never know that. She is a boss and her well produced album showcases that. She has been described as the female Prince. She plays every part of the music instrumental on the keyboards and engineered all of the sounds.
The Alchemist touches on different topics on the journey about discovery of the self. Ideas, questions raised in our culture, as we are about to enter a new era. It represents the synthesis much needed, the unity of elements that can represent anything and everything in our world. This is a message of hope right now. It also raises philosophical questions about our existence as humans in the current times. This is the beginning of the Way of the Alchemist. It is the foundation to the stories to come.
‘When asked about how the cover art came to be, Ms. Sebastian stated, ‘The cover is the portrait that was drawn by artist Ainur Timergaliev. It represents the power of one. The power of the artist who listens to the beat of the universe and how creativity shapes our lives. The power of the mind, the focus of the cover is me as a musician, producer, singer and engineer and creative visionary seeing my path. It represents all the independent creatives forging their own identity today. It is about connecting and staying connected. It is about conversation with each other and the beauty of bringing different elements together. I produced and wrote the entire album myself. It is a conceptual work. “
The brunette beauty recently collaborated with fashion designer Biblos Glasgow for her new collection ‘The Opulent Queen.‘ While working on this collection she pioneered a new concept that she titled ‘Poetic Fashion Story‘ where she writes a poem to describe each image of a shoot. This is a new innovative concept that is a mix of fashion and poetry where a model brings the photos to life with words. Ms. Sebastian wrote a poem to express the photos she modeled. This is a new way of an artist and designer collaboration that brings a true vision to life. This innovative shoot is the first of its kind and Ms. Sebastian is once again ahead of the curve in this iconic, brilliantly shot photoshoot.
When asked what was her inspiration for the shoot and how it all came together Ms. Sebastian stated, “As a creative I am introducing a brand new revolutionary way of collaborating with designers. It’s a Poetic Photo Story. This is a completely new concept I came up with by being inspired by visuals as an artist. I am a visionary and this is how my brain operates. Deborah Glasgow wanted to do a story through pictures, a story of transformation from a woman who lost herself and found her inner Queen. I hope that many women can relate to the story and the self discovery that the metaphorical Opulent Queen in the poem does. I wrote it down in a poetic way to describe each picture.” This is Jahna Sebastian’s Lyrical Fashion. She stated, “This photo shoot is meant to inspire, empower and uplift women around the world to show to discover the strength in all of us, the Queen in every woman. Through collaboration with designers, I as an artist create fashion with meaning. A picture speaks a thousand words, but I also add words to multiply the impact of the picture.” The song ‘Queen of Arts’ was written while they were shooting ‘The Opulent Queen’ collection with Biblos Glasgow.
Ms. Sebastian is currently working with talented Russian artist Ainur Timergaliev who did the artwork for the albums cover on an upcoming exhibition which will feature their works in art and music respectively and is the ultimate continuation of the album’s concept.
