Jo-B Sebastian’s breakthrough video for “Ghøst” mixes new age R&B and a story line parallel to that of the apocalyptic movie, “Deep Impact” –
R&B sensation Jo-B Sebastian isn’t a Brooklyn native but his debut music video entitled “Ghøst” might lead you to believe otherwise. Shot in and around the iconic DUMBO area of Brookly, the Bianca Catbagan-directed video evokes the feeling of the neighborhood. This is accomplished by the use of moody greys and gritty cinematography contrasted by warmer, softer shots. The video’s narrative is propelled by some high stakes imagery early in the video, driving the characters within to move, act and react.
Jo-B’s smooth vocals drive the song to emotional impact. He adds a layer of melancholy to “Ghøst” that deepens the meaning and revealing Jo-B’s talent. His voice pairs perfectly, hitting just the right emotional notes to compliment the visuals of the music video. The track was written by Jo-B, with production by Raphy Bussy. The music video is available on Jo-B’s YouTube Channel, and the song is available on all major music platforms including Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and Amazon.
Descended from a long lineage of musical talent, Jo-B is defining his own style based on his early music exposure. As a child, his parents played him music from artists he still considers inspirational. These artists include Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross. He was a frequent performer at the top clubs and lounges in Manila. He most recently has performed at New York venues such as Bowery Electric and Rockwood Music Hall.
