Independent musician, producer, songwriter and singer Seb Stone has confirmed the release of his new EP ‘Ordinary You,’ on November 12.
With influences in funk, urban pop and reggae, ‘Ordinary You’ is a development of Seb’s diverse musical style, first explored in his debut EP ‘Human,’ out earlier this year.
The EP opens with the addictive lead single, ‘Stand,’ armed with punchy drums and a heavy bass line – a stand out track, “laced with menace and hope in equal measure,” says Seb. “It’s about self-belief, with strength of spirit at its core.”
Born in London to an artistic Trinidadian/English family (Seb’s roots are Trinidadian, English, Indian, Chinese and Irish). His mother and uncle formed the duo Mac & Katie Kissoon, while his father was in the duo R&J Stone. After the duo his mother went on to record and tour/perform with the likes of Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Roger Waters, Robbie Williams, George Michael and Jamiroquai. Other member’s of his family include his Uncle, actor Jeffery Kissoon and step-brother Rhashan Stone (Episodes, Outnumbered, Desmond’s)
Seb engineers and produces all of his music out of his studio in Ealing, playing all drums, percussion, guitar, bass, and piano, on top of his song writing and vocal work. Entirely self taught, Seb works as a producer for other unsigned artists out of SKP Studios in West London, most recently working with rising retro girl group The Tootsie Rollers. He’s also worked as a session vocalist for Guy Chambers at Guy’s Sleeper Studios, where he recorded backing vocals for the likes of James Morrison and Leona Lewis.
