Emerging artist Sébastien Parentin steps into the limelight with an unmistakable aura of determination and musical prowess. Sébastien's vocal work also resonates a calmness: it's controlled, cathartic, but most importantly, it complements the musical arrangements. His latest singles traces familiar musical structures with a technical hand to paint exhilarating atmospheric tracks, with a piano-driven tapestry and stylistic echoes to Coldplay's earlier works and Matthew Bellamy's (Muse) progressive compositions.

His talents have landed him various achievements and well-deserved notability: "Best Song of the Month" in the Songwriter Universe contest, selected as semi-finalist in the Unsigned Only Music Competition, and finalist twice in the UK Songwriting Contest in the last decade.

Hi Álvaro,
Thank you so much for your support and kind words.
It doesn't happen so often these days that someone takes the time to write a few selfless compliments to an artist.

My motivation was a bit dampened the last months/years after all my requests to labels were turned down. But words like yours help me to stay focused and persevere.

All the best from France,
Sébastien




Hello Sébastien,

Thank you for responding.

In my lifetime, I have rubbed elbows with a barrage of Music Publishers, Promotors, Artistic Managers, Famous Celebraties.


And a handful of "Classical as well as Pop" Music Recording Labels.

The music business for a lack of a better word, is a racket! It's all about money and marketable commodities.

Recording Labels are nothing more than banking institutions.
Not to mention, they are a thing of the past.

Nowadays, you can accomplish more with a "hit YouTube" channel and worldwide.
Eventually selling Advertising to potential Sponsors, Entrepreneurs and Industrialist.
In the end, it's the masses, who make you or break you.

I have a well developed and keen eye for extraordinary talent.

"Sabe más el diablo por viejo, que por diablo"

The "Spark" that separates the headliners from millions of other trying to reach the summit.

Without exaggeration, from what I heard in your works, you have that SPARK! Buster.

I can tell you, it's only a matter of time that a Label or Promotor will take note of your unique gifts.

Just don't give up.
An Artist must be a fearless warrior.
It's a vicious jungle out there.
Just don't give up.

Look for some Corporate Sponsors in France, that can dish out some "Advertising" revenue.

Advertising/ Promotion is everything!
I have a gut feeling, you will accomplish your goals someday.

All the best,

Álvaro Guevara y Vázquez, Composer, BMI

Hello Álvaro,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to write these very nice and encouraging words regarding my work. I am even more touched that they come from an accomplished and talented artist like you.

As you know, stepping into the limelights is all about meeting the right person at the right time. If only one of those people in the "vicious jungle" called music industry could share your belief and enthusiasm... that's all I can wish for myself. Anyway, let's see what the future will bring!

Even though the voices of "giving up" echo louder in my head, reactions like yours help me silence them.

All the best,
Sébastien

Remember Sébastien,

Sometimes Fame and Fortune, can deprive you of your greatest treasure of owning yourself.

Or as German Philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche explained it:

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."


All the best,

Álvaro Guevara y Vázquez, Composer BMI.

Hi Álvaro,
I can't but agree to what you have written. People know me well enough to know that I take Nietzsche's warning to heart. Thank you for your unwavering support!
Sébastien
