The Seshen | 2000 Seasons
Fronted by vocalist Lalin St. Juste, The Seshen is a seven-piece band based in San Francisco. Mixing live and electronic elements and taking influence from eclectic sources including psychedelia, hip-hop, pop, R&B, West African music, dub, and indie rock, they create beat-driven compositions with a strong emotional core, a compelling sound that has hooked many fans and bloggers from first listen. Heavy industry interest has resulted in the band inking a deal with Tru Thoughts records to take it to the next level.
The Seshen’s self-titled 2012 debut album, released via Bandcamp, has inspired comparisons to J Dilla, Little Dragon, Beach House and Erykah Badu, and they have also found themselves in high demand as a live act with support slots for the likes of Thundercat, Hiatus Kaiyote, Hieroglyphics and The Memorials (with Grammy award winner Thomas Pridgen).
