Filled with that lush voice of pure joy bringing us together once again
Reminding us to live in the moment for life is fleeting
Song and video are out now for premieres and radio airplay – FCC Clean
A new album is set for release in Spring 2022 on Rabadash Records
The holidays have been hard for all of us for the past two years, and we all are ready to have a magical season this year. So, grab a cup of holiday cheer, light up the house with friends and family as Serabee’s song “This Christmas” fills your heart on the living room stereo.
The song was written by Serabee and recorded in 2020 at Rabadash Studios in Covington, LA, where she and producer John Autin were working. Engineer Marc Hewitt secretly hit the record button to let the song flow as Serabee sat at the piano. It was an impulse moment that will forever be a lasting memory for the songstress.
After that initial recording, John Autin added other instruments to the sparse arrangement to give its lush sound. Players on “This Christmas” are Dave Easley on Dobro, Nick Necaise on Organ/B3, and Lance Seymour on Guitar, and John added various sounds with Bass Guitar, strings, bells, as well. Serabee did all the Background Vocals. The video was reshot at the studios, with Sho Hogg Productions with overlapping images of Serabee roaming around the beautiful Southern Hotel in Downtown Covington.
As her bio on her website opens: “I was born on Saturday and singing on Sunday,” as Sera so aptly puts it. “Music is in my blood, and the road I’ve traveled can’t help but form my music.”
It’s true; her voice will remind you of love, pain, and laughter all at once.
Sera hails direct from the Kiln, Mississippi, with the wandering strains of roadhouse blues and rollicking revivals psychically embedded in her songs. Irresistible, pop, country, and R&B adorned in her soulful vocal presence and piano playing. As a singer, songwriter, and musician, the creative edge of Sera points to this soulful artist’s deep roots and colorful background in the American South.
Striking out on her own, Sera began performing in New Orleans & Mississippi clubs, where she garnered quite a local following. The soulful songstress created two independent recordings catching the attention of veteran music industry executives, Doug Morris, Gary Katz, Lenny Waronker, Monte Lipman, and LA Reid. She was signed to major label Universal Republic and Sony, where she released an EP (Serabee) and had the iTunes single of the week, “Driving Me Stupid.” She also became a finalist on the first season of “The Voice” as Serabee on Blake Shelton’s team.
As a naturally gifted songwriter with a strong commercial appeal, Sera penned the number one smash “Crazy Chick” for platinum sensation Charlotte Church in Europe and has since been writing with the hitmakers in Nashville, London, and New York for years. Sera has also written and worked with Michael Bolton, Craig Wiseman, Keith Sweat, Usher, Keith Stegall, and Matt Serletic.
She plans to release a new album in early 2022, stating it will be very poignant and nostalgic. The prodigal daughter is returning home after being tossed around from major label deals and touring the world to embrace her roots to record what she calls “the front porch songs” in a historical 1920s Mason’s Hall turned studio in Covington. LA. Since signing with Rabadash, Serabee feels that this path will give her a renewed hope to carry her career forward.
Sera hopes this southern, soulful direction will finally be the sound that her fans and the world will know her for.
The lyrics of this holiday song will make you stand still, and the tears will well up.
