Sevana is poised to reach great heights with her limitless vocal range and soulful depth. Iconic singers like Celine Dion, Beyoncé, and Anita Baker have inspired the Jamaican-born chanteuse, and now Sevana looks to follow in their footsteps. Sevana effortlessly flows between her soaring vocals and bold Jamaican patois, blending traditional R&B/soul that influences her sound and the Caribbean’s tropical percussive rhythms she was raised on. She is the quintessential triple threat talent – singer, actress, and model – making her Jamaica’s “it girl.” Sevana got her musical break in 2008 with the girl group SLR, placing third place on Digicel Rising Stars (Jamaica’s equivalent of American Idol). Then, she was introduced to international audiences through her feature on “Sudden Flight” from Protoje’s 2014 album Ancient Future. She has since released a soulful self-titled solo EP in 2016, the infectious single “Sometime Love” in 2018 and the uptempo dancehall inspired hit “Nobody Man” in 2019 along with “Haul and Pull” off the Protoje produced riddim Rock & Groove. Sevana has earned notoriety by The FADER, Complex, VICE/Noisey, BBC (1Xtra), BBC 1 Radio and has graced the cover of RIDDIM Magazine's SPRING 2019 issue. Over the last year, she has landed solo festival performances at Boomtown (UK), Reggae Geel (Germany) and Rototom Sunsplash (Spain), Sole DXB Festival (Dubai) and joined Protoje on some of his major shows, including BRIC’s Celebrate Brooklyn! NYC concert and Jamaica’s largest annual music festival Reggae Sumfest.
