Produced by Victor V-DUB Warren and featuring CLM Group rapper Kusdem, Sean-Christopher’s debut single “ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM” can be best described as a grandiose, fiery male response to every female anthem in recent history. The R&B and pop-fused track serves as an introduction to the artist’s first musical offering entitled The RadioACTIVE EP set to debut in August 2012.
“You don’t change the game. You take over…and that’s what I’m going to do.” – Sean-Christopher
When a new artist hits the scene, they are either loved, hated, or simply ignored. Meet emerging Atlanta-based entertainer, SEAN-CHRISTOPHER. In his words, “You can love me. You can hate me. But you damn sure can’t ignore me.” Relatively new to the music scene, SEAN-CHRISTOPHER is the quintessential total package: singer, rapper, songwriter, & dancer.
This Little Rock, Arkansas, native is definitely a student of the game and fame. After a chance encounter with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, at the age of 11, SEAN-CHRISTOPHER became completely engulfed with music and pop stardom. While accomplishing many scholastic achievements in high school, SEAN-CHRISTOPHER began honing his talents initially as a dancer and stage actor. After moving to Atlanta, Georgia, to attend Oglethorpe University on an academic scholarship, Sean began dancing professionally and appeared on hit shows ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and ‘Dancing with the Stars’. He has not only been recognized by judges and audiences alike, but has been remembered and stood out in a crowd as a star.
Even though dancing and performing were his most recognizable passions to his peers, SEAN-CHRISTOPHER secretly spent countless hours in his bedroom listening to music and composing songs. “At that time, dancing was my wife but the ‘pen’ was my mistress. And she won.” The art and integrity of songwriting is paramount to SEAN-CHRISTOPHER. Each word has an organic purpose. Each verse has a distinct intention. Each song has a defined message. They ooze into your soul and are instantly fixated in your head. Sean paints aural, intoxicating masterpieces with one simple goal—for each song to be a bona fide HIT. “I’m obsessed with creating an album greater than ‘Thriller’. Every song on that [album] was not only brilliant but, without a doubt, a radio smash. Until I can craft an album where every song is a killer, then I have failed as an artist.”
SEAN-CHRISTOPHER’s approach to music is drawn from his love and admiration for his eclectic, wide array of influences. “Most of my inspiration comes from music out of the 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s. I love funk. I adore pop. I hunger for hip-hop. But I live for R&B.” Sean grew up listening to the emotional driven records of Ray Charles and Donny Hathaway and the soulful melodies of Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. The brashness of George Clinton and 2Pac captivated him and the breakthrough visual imagery of Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson showed him how to entertain. He idolized the stage presence of Tina Turner and James Brown and the revolutionary artistry of Madonna and Prince. “No one moves me more than Prince. God gave him everything. He has a 4 octave voice, writes, dances, self-produces, and plays all of the instruments on his recordings. ‘Genius’ isn’t a big enough word to describe him.”
As an only child, music videos were Sean’s brothers and sisters. “Literally, I grew up on them. It used to be an event when a new video came out on MTV or BET. During the late 80’s and 90’s, your music video was almost more important than your song. Now you can barely get the music stations to play a full video. But today, most artists don’t make videos worth watching.” After his father bought him a VCR and set of VHS tapes, Sean began taping as many videos as he could. He would study and analyze them; learning all of the choreography in the process. Even as an independent artist, SEAN-CHRISTOPHER believes that what separates him from his contemporaries is his ability as a consummate entertainer. Expensive budgets, top notch directors, exclusive locations, and popular cameos aren’t needed by this artist. “I want to revolution music videos like Michael Jackson, Paula Abdul, Janet Jackson, Madonna, and Missy Elliott did in their prime years.”
