Tenor Joshua Stewart Launches Saint Seba Records

By Afton Wooten

American tenor and jazz artist Joshua Stewart has launched the new record label, Saint Seba Records.

With 30 years of international experience in performance and music business, Stewart has created a label specifically for vocalists.

Stewart told OperaWire, “The beauty of this label is that it is not focused on one specific genre, but one specific instrument—the voice.”

Saint Seba Records recently signed Berlin-based vocalist and coach UNRUH. “Excited,” UNRUH’s debut single will be released worldwide on Sept. 8.

Last season, Stewart made his Seattle Opera debut in Jeanine Tesori and Tazewell Thompson’s “Blue” as the character Son. In the US he has graced the stages of Madison Opera, Atlanta Opera, Arizona Opera, and sang the title role in Britten’s “Albert Herring” at the Princeton Festival. Stewart has appeared as a soloist in the Baltic Sea Festival, and with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and the Muenchner Rundfunkorchester. He has performed for several world leaders, including King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden, and Presidents George H. W. Bush, William J. Clinton, and Barack Obama.
