With a lustrous r&b infused jazz sound, songwriter and performing artist, Chelsey Bennett represents a diverse femme community with a fierce fashion sense and enchanting live show. With the launch of her new artist moniker, “Seyblu” in 2019, she’s further established her original sound that weaves dreamy jazz chords with intimate songwriting and whimsical vocals to create a fresh shimmering r&b sound. Passionate about creating a space for all womxn, LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities to thrive, Seyblu is building a network and platform through her social media with over 10k supporters. Originally from small town Ontario, Seyblu has been establishing herself in the jazz/r&b scenes in Toronto and abroad for several years. She has gained a robust live audience through regular performances, including a monthly residency in Kensington Market, showcases at notable venues (like The Mod Club, The ROM, Drake Underground), as well as mentions in Canada’s Whole Note Magazine, The Toronto Guardian; plus Ontario & Quebec tours. She has released 2 singles and is currently releasing a 4-song EP, Silk Sessions. For this audio/visual project, Seyblu embarked on a cabin retreat in her hometown with producer SLWJMZ (Saukrates, Clear Mortifee, Boy Pape). Complete with a wilderness soundscape of birds, insects, and rain as the backdrop, Seyblu brings romantic imagery to life through vulnerable lyrics, sultry r&b melodies, and sparkly vocal layers. The EP touches on a long-distance relationship, longing, loneliness, heartache and love realized, as we follow her whimsical melodies through each story. With acoustic instrumentation and modern R&B production, it creates a feeling that the band is carrying her every word. The track submitted for the 33.3 project is the 2nd single from this EP, entitled, 26:06.
