When it comes to expressing feelings through art, few things are as powerful as music. It’s like a language that can capture the tiny details of what we think and feel deep inside, whether it’s our dreams, our struggles, or our wishes. Here, we had the chance to have a chat with the talented musician Sean Christopher, exploring his journey in music.

Entering the world of rap music traces back to the artist’s formative years in elementary school. His initial exposure to music took root within the embrace of his church choir, where he first discovered his vocal prowess, an ability that had been with him since. The journey towards recording, however, didn’t truly commence until his middle school days.

“I was involved with Motown, and I’ve always wanted to record. I’ve always had uncles and aunts that were recording music and everything. I guess I decided to try it out because I was getting bullied and stuff throughout middle school and high school, and I used it as an escape route to escape the real world. I usually just lock myself in a room and, you know, record and just record what I was going through with life, you know.”

Being part of a musical family has bestowed upon the artist a unique and enriching experience. The journey within this familial musical realm has been marked by a sense of awe and fulfillment, as the artist reflects on the privilege of having constant sources of inspiration and role models. Growing up surrounded by family members who share a deep passion for music has provided an environment conducive to artistic growth and exploration.

When asked about his musical influences:
“I don’t want to sound like everybody else, but I would say as far as versatility goes, I would say maybe – if you want to talk about modern-day music – I would say Drake, for sure, because he’s one of the reasons why, he helped me develop my sound as well, like mixing rapping and singing. But if you want to take it back to the early 2000s and ’90s, I would say people like um Jon B., Craig David. I would also say Boyz II Men, especially a lot of artists that my mom used to listen to when I used to just be in the backseat of the car and just vibing out, you know what I’m saying?”

Talking about his EP called, “Unforgettable Miscellanea,” he said that the project is a mixture of old music and newer music.

“Actually, you can hear some songs on there from the time when I was, I guess you could say, in a dark space. I decided to add those on there because, like, some of those songs were the biggest songs that got me my burst. I decided to just put it out there to give it some more life and to reach new people. But yeah, I have newer music on there. I have a song on there with French Montana, and a song with King Combs, Diddy’s son – they’re on there. But yeah, pretty much, I came up with the title ‘Unforgettable Miscellanea.’ It’s like miscellaneous, like random things, but it’s unforgettable, like a compilation of music talking about different things, different moves, different emotions with every song, just put together in one project.”

He said that the album “Take Care” by Drake is an album with no skips. He also said that Drake’s verse in “Pound Cake,” which goes, “My classmates, they went on to be chartered accountants Or work with their parents, but thinkin’ back on how they treated me My high school reunion might be worth an appearance Make everybody have to go through security clearance Tables turn, bridges burn, you live and learn” is a GOAT verse.

Sean also mentioned to check out underrated artists: Roy Woods and Serge Laurent.

In the future, Sean would love to collaborate with Drake and SZA. “Drake, of course,” he said. “SZA’s dope,” he added.

On upcoming projects, Sean said he’s working on a new album. “I was supposed to drop it in August, but I wanted to just put out some other projects in between. I plan to put it out sometime next summer or not this fall, but next year’s fall.”

Clearly, Sean Christopher’s musical journey shows how expressing yourself through music is a strong and creative way to communicate. As he keeps making and sharing his unique art, we’re excited to hear the new tunes and stories he’ll share that will touch our hearts and minds.
