Renee Sebastian

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Got this update sent to me - I haven't had a chance to listen to it myself - but the SF Weekly has a good story on Filipino singer Renee Sebastian as well who they describe as "the sunny simplicity of classic soul in the slick new duds of radio R&B, not unlike a purer version of Ne-Yo or Beyoncé's approach":

She makes accessible songwriting look easy on her new EP, but anyone who has heard even mediocre R&B knows it isn't, and will welcome Sebastian's strong, smooth voice and these expert full-band arrangements. She's also brutally honest, tackling her teenage pregnancy on the hip-hop-flavored opener "This Is Me" and all but offering herself as a sacrifice on "Please Break My Heart."
Renee Sebastian's CD Mrs. Sebastian just got released and can be purchased via iTunes, Nimbit, and CD Freedom.
