Rachel Lynn Sebastian Bio
Acting as a soulful storyteller, Rachel Lynn Sebastian brings a dramatic vibrancy to the stage. Her lyrics are soaked with passion, irony and humility and only her unforgettable voice and presence can facilitate the power of her message.
Sebastian began her musical journey in the old town school of folk music: the campfire sing-a-long. Her childhood was immersed in the music of Anne Murray, Amy Grant, Neil Diamond and the Mamas and the Papas. Then, as a jazz pianist and vocalist in her late teens, and as a member of the University of Oregon's elite GOSPEL SINGERS group, she gained an additional edge in shaping the essence of her music.
Music stardom, however, was not the only stage after which she sought; She obtained a degree in theatre at the University and studied multiple forms of dance including Hip-Hop, Modern and Latin. To see Sebastian perform, then, is to be captivated. She owns the mic like a cool cat and enchants her listeners, transporting them to a place where honesty, passion, drama and dance collectively reside.
Rachel Lynn Sebastian is proclaimed "Adele's competition" by Hollywood Life T.V.. She has toured worldwide including major stays in London, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Macau and Saigon. ??
