Seinabo Sey

Idioma disponível: inglês
Swedish-Gambian vocalist and songwriter Seinabo Sey is a gold- and platinum-certified artist in her home country whose music melds U.S.-influenced soulful R&B and electro-pop. Her slightly grainy contralto offers an adept falsetto and rich lower register; it is forceful and extroverted while her lyrics often chart psychological and emotional states of interiority and vulnerability. Her original songs more often than not take themes associated with personal empowerment as their M.O. Her infectious, assertive single "Younger" charted in nine countries including the U.S., and was certified multi-platinum in three, while her universally acclaimed debut album, Pretend, charted at number four in Sweden and 14 in Norway, and was also certified multi-platinum. Sey again reached the upper echelon of the Swedish charts with 2018's I'm a Dream before delivering singles like "Shores," "Black Star," and "Suzuki." Born in Stockholm in 1990, Sey was first exposed to music by her father Maudo Sey, an acclaimed West African musician. After moving with her family to Halmstad, Sey enrolled at the prestigious Östergårdsskolans school, where she studied music. Academically inclined, Sey initially thought to pursue a less creative career, but by age 16 had moved back to Stockholm and enrolled in music classes at the Fryshusets Center. Influenced by such artists as Lauryn Hill, Beyonce, and Alicia Keys, Sey developed a confident performance aesthetic while at Fryshusets. After graduating, Sey began collaborating with other artists, appearing with Oskar Linnros, Linda Pira, Stor, and others. In 2013, she lost her father and the impact of that event on her music cannot be overstated. She released the Magnus Lidehäll-produced single "Younger." The song caught the public's attention and gained even wider popularity with a 2014 remix by Kygo. Also in 2014, Sey released her debut EP, For Madeleine (named after her mother), that charted at 15 on the Heatseekers chart. On the heels of the release, she made several high-profile appearances including performances at the Swedish Grammy Awards and the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. A second EP, For Maudo (after her father), arrived in 2015. Both of her EPs paved the way for her full-length debut, 2015's Pretend. Produced by Lidehäll, the album included many of her previously released singles (including "Younger," "Hard Time," and "Pretend") helping the album to number four in Sweden. She also took home the Swedish Grammy for Best Newcomer. Sey spent much of 2017 touring Europe, though she did manage to release a Charming Horses remix of "Still." In 2018, Sey and Lidehäll hit the studio hard and began to deliver singles ranging from "I Owe You Nothing" b/w "Remember" (feat. Jacob Banks), to "Breathe" and a digital release with versions of "Breathe" and "For You." After appearing on Banks' "Be Good to Me," she released her sophomore long player, I'm a Dream, hitting number six in Sweden. Several non-album singles followed, including 2019's "Shores" (with Vargas & Lagola), 2021's "Sweet Life" (with Waterbaby), 2022's "Black Star," and 2023's "Suzuki."
