JAHNA SEBASTIAN BIOGRAPHY


Jahna Sebastian is a British multifaceted entertainer with 19 years in the 
 
entertainment industry. She is a singer, actress and accomplished musician who writes, 
 
produces, performs, engineers, mixes her own music doing it all from programming 
 
instruments to editing. She is also producing and engineering for other artists, having 
 
recorded and mixed entire albums and mixtapes in her studio Multivizion Music, which 
 
since it’s establishment has become the centre of Russian rap and grime scene in London. 
 
Together with rapper Oxxxymiron whose album she engineered, they brought grime and 
 
dubstep to Russia. (Oxxxymiron was named Discovery of the Year at the Russian GQ 
 
awards.) At the age of 19 Ms. Sebastian was chosen through an audition of thousands of 
 
applicants to receive a free public Master Class by legendary, world renowned vocal 
 
coach and founder of Speech Level Singing, Seth Riggs. Classically trained on piano 
 
while earning her Degree in "Music Business" a year earlier from the five year program 
 
at the age of 20, at the prestigious Russian Academy of Music, she had also learned to 
 
read music at the age of 7 when she played domra in children's orchestra for 8 years.
 
 She is of South Indian and Russian origins based in Croydon, South London she 
 
started her career as a singer and mc in Russia joining reggae group “Muzungu” in 2004, 
 
which then led her to joining p-funk group Clean Tone and establishing her own reggae 
 
band “Jah Soldiers” in 2005. While she became the top female reggae artist in Russia at 
 
the time, it was the rising neo-Nazi movement and racism she has been coming across 
 
more and more on a daily basis to the point when she had to flee to London in summer 
 
2006. She had just turned 20 and had to learn the new rules and start her life all over 
 
again completely on her own in England. She worked in a legendary music technology 
 
shop “Turnkey” for 8 months as a sales expert being the only girl on the shop floor 
 
selling music equipment. No stranger to adversity, after trying to claim asylum she was 
 
detained illegally at the Yarl's Wood detention center while three months pregnant on 
 
November 21, 2007 for two months to fight being deported back to Russia where she 
 
faced oppression and discrimination by racist neo-Nazi thugs. After a two year battle 
 
which included writing to the Queen of England of her battles and receiving a reply from 
 
the Queen acknowledging the points she made and offering her support. Ms. Sebastian's 
 
case was finally approved and she was granted her stay in UK. 
 
 She continued pursuing music while raising her daughter born in 2008 (whose father 
 
is American super producer Swizz Beats) and for three years she had been mostly 
 
working behind the scenes juggling motherhood and work. After producing and 
 
engineering a few hundred songs for other artists, releasing her “Emancipation EP” in 
 
2009 and a few other songs independently, filming three music videos and acting in three 
 
short movies, a feature film "Reversed" released in autumn 2012 and numerous 
 
commercials, she is focusing on her solo career and upcoming projects. She has an 
 
astonishing track record of hundreds of songs including recording entire album by 
 
Oxxxymiron “Vechniy Jid” which had been rated Best Rap Album of 2011 in Russia and 
 
nominated for Russian Urban Music Awards. Together with Oxxxymiron she helped 
 
bringing grime to Russia and she produced the first grime/dubstep song in Russian 
 
language. She had also been extensively performing around the UK, including jungle 
 
raves and London Peace Concert on Tranfalgar Square in 2007, World Sickle Cell Day 
 
2012 in Wolverhampton in West Park.

London" girl group ("Heart Skip a Beat" and other songs), Insomnia Beats Productions,

part of hip hop collective "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Sounds" since summer 2013.

historic show at Victoria Park in Leicester called "Summer Solstice" with 50,000 people 
 
attending. The show was filmed and screened at cinemas and will be released on DVD

Ms. Sebastian has previously worked with Khloe Nova for London's fashion week back 
 
in September where she strutted on the catwalk modeling a bubble gum pink, cut out 
 
gown, accessorized with an onyx black, art deco necklace and black sunglasses with 
 
rhinestones. She was a hit on the runway, photographers couldn't get enough of her 
 
beauty and clicked away, taking many shots of her. The fashion show took place at Roof 
 
Gardens and was produced by well established event promoter Duccio Zambrini. She was 
 
also booked for SKY TV 805 Venus TV show in November 2015 as well as gracing the
