Sebastian Janoski Extraordinary Talent on the Rise

“I truly love to sing, write and play music, if I am able to combine that with acting and my love of the theater, it is just a perfect day!!”                                                                                          Sebastian Janoski

Record Labels, Movies, Singles, Music Videos, National Television, and Radio…..2014 looks to be another successful year for rising star Sebastian Janoski!

I remember the first time I saw Sebastian Janoski. Stumbling upon a YouTube Channel with less than 10 videos and only a handful of subscribers, I see a 12 year old young man sitting at his picnic table in the back yard of his home, belting out a song while accompanying himself acoustically on his guitar. I was blown away!

Nearly two years has passed since then, and for Sebastian Janoski, it’s been like a never ending roller coaster of career milestones that would keep even the most seasoned of performers in awe. His YouTube Channel now sports 89 videos with nearly 45,000 views.

In our last update for Sebastian he had just returned from his 2nd appearance on The “Katie Couric Show” and at that time had no idea the new roads those appearances would take him down.

Sebastian Takes on the Big Screen

That National Television appearance was obviously a success, because not long after that appearance, Sebastian was contacted by Award winning author and filmmaker Kenneth Del Vecchio of JFA Productions and the founder of the annual Hoboken International Film Festival.  Mr. Del Vecchio took notice and reached out to Sebastian through Facebookinviting him to be his personal guest to the 2013 Festival.

Sebastian says of that experience; “It was absolutely amazing to walk the red carpet for the first time! Spending time at that huge event, meeting all the producers, directors and actors was just too exciting!!”

It’s definitely not going to be the last red carpet event Sebastian will be attending, because, not long after that, Mr. DelVecchio offered him a role in his upcoming movie “Rock Story” starring the likes of Academy award nominated actors such as Eric Roberts.

Tony Mateo

Tony Mateo was born in San Fernando (Cádiz), an Andalusian city located in the southwest corner of Spain. His grandpa has been active as tenor soloist with a choir for over 50 years while his mother sings Boleros and Spanish music. Tony showed a keen interest for singing and performing from an early age. It all started when he was six years old. Tony watched the reality show “Operación Triunfo”, the Spanish version of American Idol. Every time David Bustamante, one of the contestants, went on stage, Tony would tell his mother that he would like to be like David one day.  Soon after, his mother began to coach him, correcting his singing technique and presenting him with music that matched his vocal range. He and his younger brother Abraham (who was featured here only a few weeks ago) frequently sang at home as though they were in a competition and their parents played the jury.

TONY THE PERFORMER

Tony made his first public performance in 2005, when he was eleven. He entered the  “Veo Veo” talent competition, which is a contest for young talent in song and dance, organized by the Teresa Rabal Foundation. It was that performance that encouraged and motivated him to become a singer. In an interview with Tony, he tells us how he experienced that day:

 “It was all too much for me because I’d never been on stage nor on television before, but I lived and enjoyed it so intensively and it made me realize what I wanted for my life: music”.

Tony participated for five consecutive years in the “Veo Veo” talent contest and was chosen four times for the regional final. Taking part at the  “Veo Veo” competition was an experience that changed his life. He recalled;

that competition gave me so many emotions and dreams, it was my beginning in music, where everything started for me, and what inspired and motivated me to become a singer”.
