About Sebastian So Soul: Emerging out of Brooklyn, New York, a young man named Jonathan Francis has graced the hearts and minds of artists and music enthusiasts alike. His alias, Sebastian Soul, gives you an idea of how he does that exactly. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Quincy Jones, Kanye West, and Jdilla, Sebastian Soul has an understanding how his music can change the lives of people. His sole purpose for pursuing a career in music is to “create opportunities for those who want to create opportunities for others”. His dedication to his craft is less about achieving super-stardom and more about living his life as a testament that success is attainable no matter the circumstances you are given.
The Black Tape is my debut project that is themed around Black History Month. The purpose of this project was to showcase my ability as a producer as well as provide listeners with music containing substance that seems to be lacking in our current industry. The speeches featured on this tape touch on an array of topics from, spirituality to politics, to self-sufficiency and empowering our communities by taking education, and business into our own hands. Within these changing times, the focal point of progression is not geared towards racial equality, as much as it once was, but rather knowing how our decisions as individuals effect humanity as a whole.
