Destined to become an audiovisual translator, Sébastien was finally bitten by the music bug, leading to a career in the music industry. After great experiences in France and abroad with production agencies, festivals and the French Music Export Office in particular, he officiated for four years in a unique program combining music and solidarity as Head of Digital and Volunteer Relations.
For six years Orange RockCorps provided volunteering opportunities to nearly 100,000 young French people and helped 470 charities across France through the power of music. For 4 hours of volunteering, each young person received an exclusive ticket for one of the nineteen private concerts organised throughout France featuring artists such as Snoop Dogg, David Guetta, Lauryn Hill, ASAP Rocky, Selah Sue, Oxmo Puccino, Stromae, Black M, Soprano, The Ting Tings, Lilly Wood & The Prick. Through partnering with Orange and NRJ, the project resonated throughout France.
Seb then got back to the independent scene as Project Manager, joining the Beggars Group and its five prestigious independent labels: 4AD, Matador, Rough Trade, XL Recordings and Young. The Beggars Group represents dozens of artists in various musical universes such as Adele, Radiohead, The National, Queens of The Stone Age, Black Midi, Jungle, The XX, The White Stripes, The Breeders, Grimes, Alabama Shakes, etc. With around forty annual releases on the French market, he developed marketing, promotion, communication and digital strategies for the roster on the French market.
Today Sébastien provides counsel and management as a freelancer. His experience allows him to have a global overview of musical projects and take them to the next level. Do not hesitate to contact me with any request.
