"The Seshen" by The Seshen

The Seshen is: Aki Ehara (Bass/Production), Akasha Orr (Vocals), Julian Pont (Drums), Kumar Butler (Laptop/Samples), Lalin St. Juste (Vocals), Mahesh Rao (Keyboards) & Mirza Kopelman (Percussion).

Friends, family and fellow music lovers! We at The Seshen have spent the last year recording our self-titled debut album and are ready to share it with the world. What a beautiful journey it has been for 7 eclectic personalities with diverse musical tastes... Our labor of love, recorded at Sleepy Wizard Studios by our amazing bassist/producer Aki Ehara, is full of abstract storytelling, luscious rhythms and dense electronic backdrops.  Preview the entire album here:

We are reaching out to you to help us fund our project. Our goal is to raise $4000 by April 14 towards mastering, CD production, online distribution, a music video for one of our standout tracks ("Oblivion") and our record release party.

We've put our souls into this record and we hope y'all feel it too!


Thanks for giving :)
