Sebastian Janoski Receives National Spotlight and Shot at Broadway

“It’s not about age; it’s about the love of music that comes through no matter if your 13 or 30. I have just been fortunate to realize my gifts from God at an early time in my life”           Sebastian Janoski

Sebastian on KeyboardWhile it has been less than a year since Sebastian’s introduction to RivenMaster.com, it seems like a lifetime.  Since Sebastian Janoski’s appearance on Americas Got Talent Season 7, his drive and determination to perform and have his music be heard by the masses has gotten even greater.  He of course loves to regularly perform locally for coffee houses, public events, local playhouses….but his drive has taken his act to a National Stage as well.

He has had a performing schedule that would make the most seasoned professional envious!  Almost immediately following the publication of his initial article, Sebastian had the honor of singing the National Anthem at an event for PA Governor Tom Corbett.  Governor Corbett was noticeably blown away with the strength maturity of Sebastian’s big voice!

It has been a whirlwind ride ever since.  Sebastian’s promotional efforts along with the strength and ever-growing following on his YouTube and other WebPages have gained him National Attention with Television shows such as ABC’s “The Katie Couric Show”.  Sebastian was chosen to appear on the show for a special segment entitled “One To Watch”.

He was given the opportunity to sing for legendary music producer Clive Davis, American Idol Winner Jordin Sparks, and musical Icon Usher live on the show.    While Usher was in the end not able to attend the performance, Sebastian did get to meet and speak to him backstage.  “He was really great” says Sebastian, “He wished me luck in my career, and said he hopes to have the opportunity to see me again”.  The other celebrities were able to give their reactions to Sebastian’s Performance of “one More Night” by Maroon 5.

  • Sebastian on Katie CouricClive Davis “You have a voice Sebastian!! You have an innate Musicality”  **
  • Jordin Sparks, “Sebastian, Your Voice is so strong, so confident.  you make everyone love you as soon as you come on stage” to Sebastian’s delight,  Jordin also added “You are so cute, just adorable!!” and ran up to give him a bear hug after the cameras stopped rolling” **
  • Katie Couric added, “You’re Fantastic, Such a strong voice at such a young age” **

Sebastian was also interviewed by Katie Couric about his singing career and it was obvious to the seasoned professionals as well as anyone who saw Sebastian perform that day that Sebastian has quite a future in entertainment.

 

Sebastian in Newsies

 

Since Sebastian’s National appearance he has had quite busy schedule!  Because of his superb performance, He was given the opportunity by Katie Couric and her producers to appear in The Broadway Hit Musical “Newsies”.  But not just a cameo, and actual singing and dancing role in the March 12th performance.  He says of his experience in “Newsies”  

“It was a dream of mine; I actually saw this play in this theater with these stars last summer….to be on stage with them now is just crazy!!” 

Sebastian’s experience in Newsies was chronicled and will be highlighted in another future episode of the “Katie Couric Show”. As soon as the air date is known we will inform everyone.

Sebastian in Studio

Sebastian is currently in the studio recording his first single entitled “Big City” and preparing it for worldwide release.  It is a song that expresses his passion for performing  and desire to be on stage.  When he wrote the lyrics a year ago, he had no idea his reference to the Newsies in the song would turn into reality!!  He is recording in “Lanark Records” studios  in Lancaster PA with producer Quentin Jones.  Quentin is a protégé and student of the legendary rock producer Al Cooper.  He has recorded with legends such as Charlie Gracie, Robert Gordon and Brian Setzer.  Sebastian hopes the skills and natural sound that Quentin brings to his music will come through on the final product and looks forward to seeing the reaction by the public to his first professional recording.  Everyone will be able to find the single soon on iTunes, Amazon and wherever music can be downloaded.  Expect many more originals to be recorded and published in the coming months.

Sebastian is also working with the artist development team at Robert Anthony Entertainment Group  which hales from Pittsburgh, PA as well as Nashville, TN, and is currently fielding offers for national tour spots, PR assistance, production and publishing. 

Along with his National appearances, he has kept busy regionally as well.  He was a performer in the 2000+ seat Broadway style venue American Music Theatre for their  “Home for The Holidays”  annual Christmas show that had a running of 3 months.  He was also a Headlining performer in “The Walk for D.E.S”, a newly formed annual suicide prevention fundraiser held in Clipper magazine Stadium, Lancaster, PA..  He has many upcoming events which can be found on his Facebook Page, some of the highlights include a performance at the historical “Fulton Theatre” for the annual fundraising event “Fulton Follies”  in May and a performance scheduled in the Annual  “Launch Music Conference” in Lancaster PA in April.

He will also be a special guest at this year’s annual, critically acclaimed “Hoboken International Film Festival” in Middletown, New York this May.  The festival was founded by award winning author and filmmaker Kenneth Del Vecchio.  Mr. Del Vecchio took notice of Sebastian during his Katie Couric appearance and reached out to Sebastian through Facebook saying;

“Not only do you have an amazing and powerful voice, but a great and very likeable demeanor with definitive confidence. What a talent!”

While National attention can be overwhelming for some, Sebastian takes it in stride and sees this as a natural progression.

I have no doubt that we are going to be seeing a whole lot more of Sebastian Janoski!  If the world is a stage then this is the boy to fill that stage. With his vocals and acting ability, Sebastian’s next appearance on Broadway could very well be a lead role!
