“Us” is about a union of two people, who are lovers and partners helping each other and building a strong foundation on a journey into the future.

“Love Over Hate” was written after she was online on Facebook and saw her timeline flooded with loud headlines about war zones, conflicts and horrific pictures of broken empty homes and lost lives, as well as post with people arguing about who is right and who is wrong. She couldn’t get those images out of her head so she decided to put the pen to the paper and write a song about it.
Music has always played an important role in Ms. Sebastians life, she stated, “Music has saved and transformed my life so many times, that I wish it was somewhere in my passport next to my name. It is equal to my name for me. In hard times, in the loneliest moments, I would just sit down, start singing, making beats or listening to my favorite artists and next thing I would come out with a fresh point of view, with a feeling of a purpose in life. Music is so powerful, it has brought so many amazing people into my life, it is connected to the most significant events that have happened to me. Music is my story.”
When asked what makes her different from other artist she states, “One of the main things is that I am not only a singer-songwriter, I am a producer in the full sense of the word and production is still a men’s world, I love it. I love computers, studio gear, I get lost in that for many hours every day unless I am away performing. I make beats, I engineer, I create a song from scratch to finish and then I can make a whole music video out of it. I work on creative concepts to the T, I am completely in charge of my career and the vision I have. I direct the whole project and because of this, I have been able to work with so many diverse artists on their projects whether as a singer, producer or engineer, as it allows me to be more flexible and open minded.”
Artist Ainur Timergaliev drew Ms. Sebastian’s portrait which embodies who she is as a musician and it also features the musical notes from ‘Love Over Hate’, which will be a video compilation of the process to music from the “Love Over Hate” EP.
