There may come a time when your life experience becomes shared history.
Right your story.

Donisha Pendergast




SEVANA is a quintessential triple threat.

Her burgeoning abilities are now backed by reggae star Protoje’s management and label company In.Digg.Nation Collective. Although Sevana got her musical break in 2008 with the girl group SLR, placing third place on Digicel Rising Stars (Jamaica’s equivalent of American Idol), it was not until years later that her career came into focus. Over the past year, Sevana landed several festival performances and joined Protoje on some of his major shows. Her photogenic, naturally radiant look has made her a favorite of photographers and fashion labels.

For the EP, I wanted to add songs that covered various thoughts and my beliefs. I took the bars off my mind. I did not want to compromise sonically, so I just wrote, in an honest way, honoring the melodies as they came out of me. I wanted to take the listener on a meaningful journey and I think I did that,” Sevana says about her latest body of work.
