In 2008, artist/activist/entrepreneur, Shyan Selah released his debut album, Brave New World. An incredible mixture of hard hitting hip hop beats, classic R&B and soul, with more than a hint of funk and rock, Brave New World is an album destined to revolutionize today’s music. Brave New World holds the vocal and instrumental essence of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Marvin Gaye and Prince, and the rap essence of Nas, KanyeWest, Lauryn Hill, and Jay Z. Completed in just three weeks, Brave New World brings the best of Shyan Selah all the way around: the MC and the vocalist, the hustler and the activist. Through his talent, voice and message this is not just an album. It is an introduction to an altogether new and unique kind of star, music, and way of life.

Recorded at the legendary House of Blues in Encino, CA and the studio home of the prestigious Fabian Cooke (co-writer and producer of “Hakuna Matata,” Musical Director Ziggy Marley), Brave New World was also mixed by Billboard acclaimed Mix Engineer Booker T. Jones III (Boyz II Men, Mary J. Blige, Destiny’s Child) and mastered at renowned Oasis Mastering by Eddy Schreyer (Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Will Smith, Akon). Shyan Selah made sure his debut would receive nothing but the best when it came to recording studios, sound engineers, mixers and masters.

Merging quality with uniqueness, all of Brave New World’s music is produced by BNW producers, including Head of Production, DJ Rocdusa, The Trailz, Fred “Freddie Fingerz” Darden and Q Dot and features Dave Foreman on guitar (Anthony Hamilton, Snoop Dogg, Aaliyah) and vocalist R.E.L. Paul, daughter of Alan Paul from the acclaimed group, Manhattan Transfer.

Both Brave New World, the Album and Brave New World, The MixTape are available on iTunes.
