The Seshen

The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area-based six-piece led by singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste and

bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. Their forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines,

live percussion, and entrancing harmonies to create an unmistakable fusion of R&B, synth-pop, and

electronic music. St. Juste and Ehara are joined by four remarkable bandmates to create their

multidimensional music: drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist

Mirza Kopelman, and sampler Kumar Butler. They take inspiration from across the musical spectrum;

their individual influences range from recognizable artists (Erykah Badu, Jai Paul, James Blake,

Radiohead, and Broadcast) to genres and eras that don’t initially appear to fit together (hip hop, indie

rock, early electronica, and 70’s dub). Their unique alchemy of seemingly disparate sounds has led fans

and critics alike to describe the band as defying categorization.
