Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience. 

My name is Sebastian Janoski. I was born in the United States on June 22nd 1999, and even for my whole childhood, I was always dancing, acting, and singing. Entertaining has always been what has made me happy for as long as I can remember!

Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience and skills. 

I began professional vocal training and guitar lessons when I was about 8 years old but then when I was 12 years old, after I had had some amazing experiences on shows like America’s Got Talent and The Katie Couric Show, I began to get a lot more serious with my music and I started writing, recording, and releasing my own music. I’ve been working on building up my career and getting my music out there ever since.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song. 

The easiest way to describe my music would be a contemporary blues pop kind of mixture; however, I’m not a fan of limiting myself. “Toy” was a song about standing up to a situation you’re not happy with. In this specific video, that situation was a relationship with someone who was not being open or completely 100% with me so I decided it was best to go our separate ways. It was really fun to take an experience I went through and recreate it with a visual.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business. 

I try to stay positive. Positivity it one of the strongest assets to have in this industry. I think with every musician, there’s going to be ups and downs. For me, it’s the pretty common one- rejection. It’s hard when something seems like it’s right there and then all of a sudden it’s gone, but, I think God has a plan for everything and everyone and whenever that happens I can always easily remind myself that it simply just wasn’t my time. After all these years it’s become easier to control my emotions and not get my hopes set to hi.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot. 

I’ve worked with some really great songwriters and producers in the past and I hope to work with them again so soon, but, as of now, as far as my songwriting process goes, I’m very independent. Once I have a song I’m happy with, I’ll go to either a really great local producer that I’ve worked with multiple times at a great studio, The Pin Factory, in my town, or I’ll go to LA or New York to record. For my most recent video I used a director name Tyler Holender and he did such an amazing job with this video and I am 100% set on working with him again. The process was one of the easiest and most laid back I’ve ever been involved with.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal. 

I’ve been really serious about this since about the age of 10. That’s when I started auditioning for musicals, talent contests, and really making my life all about music. I had some really amazing opportunities and blessings come my way between the ages of 12-14, and I still to this day have had some great opportunities in the industry but once you get to an age where you’ve really decided the avenue you want to go down in this industry it gets harder, because there are specific opportunities you could take but you decide against because it wouldn’t necessarily promote the vision you have for your own career. Right now I am in a really great place and I’m just going to continue to write, record, and release and hope to inspire people!

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing. 

I write what’s on my mind in the moment and whatever melody or beat I’m specifically feeling that day, is what I’m left with, and, so far, the songs I write do connect and are pretty cohesive. As long as you let the music flow naturally, you’re going to get a cohesive catalogue of songs if they’re all coming from the same mind. My songs are usually from a deep place so I take inspiration from multiple things I’ve faced in my life, whether it is bullying, anxiety, or even a memorable positive experience. I always have to remember that one positive song to balance out the sad songs. I’ve just found sad moments are the easier times to write songs.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 

I think if you write something that a large group of people will be able to relate to and understand; that could really help. If I listen to a song and I can immediately feel it and relate to it, I fall in love with it instantly. And, of course, having a short repetitive, and catchy post chorus helps immensely as well. Those 4 bars after the chorus are usually where you want the hook that will be stuck in the listeners’ head for days on end.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there. 

As simple as it sounds, I really want to just promote the idea of kindness. I think there’s a lot of division going on based on politics, religion, and other things, and I think if everyone could push those ideas aside, stop focusing on that stuff, and just focus on being kind to one another and showing compassion, it would do wonders. I think you should stand up for what you believe in and stand by your values, but there’s a way to do that and still promote kindness.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist. 

I think persistence is an amazing quality to have as an upcoming artist. You’ve got to keep posting video after video, writing song after song, going to audition after audition, and finally, something will hit. If I’m not recording music, recording an audition, or planning a new video, I’m writing songs. My whole entire day is always just dedicated to it. I think just dedication and the true love of the craft will help in a huge way.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 

I was so blessed to have been given such great opportunities at a pretty young age. When I was 12 I had an amazing experience on America’s Got Talent season 7, I was in multiple segments on the Katie Couric show, and I had my broadway debut in New York City in The Newsies at the Nederlander Theater. In more recent years, I’ve been blessed to have songs featured in amazing films, the most recent one being “Natural Selection’. As of now, some of my favorite moments have been some of the people I’ve gotten to work with. I’ve produced multiple songs with one of the most talented writers/producers I’ve ever met- Pj Bianco. Some of my favorite artists like Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas have worked with him so it was crazy to have that opportunity.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio. 

I used to be so critical of the lyrics I would write and the melodies I would compose, and I would always go through every individual line or individual note and change it around to make it “perfect,” but it still wouldn’t ever be good enough. Now, I let my ideas flow, I don’t edit, and I don’t over analyze. When an Idea pops in my head that I like in the moment, I write it down, and it’s final. Ever since doing that, I’ve found that I am so much happier with each song I write now. As for the studio, I’ve always said that I have to have vocal rest, and I have to be at the top of my vocal game immediately before going into the studio because that’s when I let everything out and use every inch of range and I try to venture into as many of my capabilities as a vocalist as I can, in order to get the best recording, and you need to be on top vocally if you want to do that.

Name five biggest artists that you like. 

Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Elton John, Billy Joel, Demi Lovato.

.

.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so. 

I haven’t done any collaboration as of now, but, artists like John Mayer, and Charlie Puth are two artists that I would love to work with. They both have such unique sounds and writing styles. I think it would be an amazing experience.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 

My happiest day is any day surrounded by music, family, and God. My saddest day is any day I feel alone. I don’t like an empty quiet house and whenever I’m by myself without someone to talk to or a way to distract myself from other things that could upset me, I’m pretty sad.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

The first thing I would do is pay off my sister’s college and my parent’s mortgage. After that, I’m not too sure.
