Local contemporary jazz and R&B singer Sean Kamati, who goes by Sean K on stage, told Metro this week in an interview said that his debut album has been recorded and is just awaiting release.
Although the singer, who started his music career in 2012, could not tell Metro when to expect his album on the shelves, he is confident about the quality of his work.
Sean K also attended a popular music festival called The Daisies in Cape town last week, and tells “It was an extremely good time but more than that it was an opportunity for me to see how these things are done, what it takes as an artist to perform there and the performances themselves.”
The artist hopes to perform at the next The Daisies festival yonder the Orange River. He also expressed desire, despite not having collaborated with other musicians on his album, to work on other music projects with other local artists.
“I have finished recording the album so now it’s really just the mixing and mastering that has to happen now. So patience. I know it has been coming but it will be well worth the wait. Believe I am waiting too,” Sean K said.
To him the only thing standing between him and his musical dreams is a Grammy which he hopes to bring back home at one point.
He also said that he is impressed with the level at which music is moving Namibia with regards to performances.
“They are taking it to the next level. From established artists to the upcoming ones the level of excellence is amazing”.
The artists said he has been inspired by other Namibian musicians and loves the initiative showed when musicians follow their passion which inspires him to do the same.
Like most musicians who have joined the music scene after 2010, he has experienced his share of challenges as the industry is thought to be un-accommodative of new players but he said, “I have not thought about giving up. When it gets difficult that actually drives me to push harder. One does get tired but giving up is not an option”.
