Seinabo Sey’s breakthrough was as immediate as it was inevitable. The depth, warmth and weight of her powerful yet vulnerable voice, and the lines that effectively got under her skin, catapulted her to heights few Swedish artists have ever experienced. But it soon became clear that Seinabo had no intention of repeating herself – that the Swedish-Gambian star had no intention of satisfying the sometimes rigid expectations of the music industry. Instead, she has patiently allowed her artistry to evolve and today Seinabo Sey still rules like a queen over her equally inspired and original musical universe.
His 2015 debut ‘Pretend’, which featured songs like ‘Younger’ and ‘Hard Times’, transformed Seinabo Sey into one of our brightest international stars. But with the release of the stunning first single ‘I Owe You Nothing’, it was clear that the 2018 follow-up ‘I’m A Dream’ would be something else entirely. ‘I’m A Dream’ was more confident, more mature and more confrontational without losing an ounce of the vibrant soulfulness we’ve come to associate with Seinabo Sey. Earlier this year saw the release of her third album ‘THE ONE AFTER ME’ – considered by many to be her best yet. It’s bold, poignant and imbued with a liberating sense of freedom as the artist plays with teenage R&B, Swedish folk music and unexpected productions.
During the summer, Seinabo Sey has given a small number of exclusive live performances, not least as support for Bon Iver at Dalhalla and an unforgettable concert at this year’s Way Out West. With ‘THE ONE AFTER ME’ behind her, Seinabo is now embarking on an extensive tour through Scandinavia in the spring of 2024. The tour will be her first headlining tour in five years.
