Sekiden’s high-energy live performances have reverberated worldwide, with extensive touring throughout Australia, Canada, Japan and the USA.
2007 saw Seja join iconic genre-mashers Regurgitator. To date Seja has travelled with the band throughout Australia and on numerous overseas jaunts to Japan, China, Europe and Brazil.
An artist constantly wanting to push her own creative boundaries, Seja has also lent her keyboarding and singing skills to touring buddies such as SPOD, David McCormack and Ben Salter.
In 2010 Seja created a new batch of solo pieces under her own name for her album We Have Secrets But Nobody Cares. Seja’s solo output is a synthesis of her musical lineage to date, with future-pop production and blissful vocal harmonies. Off the back of a couple of years touring with her own band, playing support slots for Warpaint, Goldfrapp and Sarah Blasko,
Seja wrote and recorded a second volume of sweetly synthesised soundscapes entitled All Our Wires. The album sees the likes of Robert Forster of Australian legends the Go-Betweens, Cut Copy’s Tim Hoey and Regurgitator’s Ben Ely contributing vocals, guitars and bass, along with some arrangement from Wally De Backer. As such, Seja’s second record contrasts her debut with an increased focus on acoustic instrumentation and overlaying refined vocal harmonies and trademark 80’s synth sounds.
Seja was also the winner of the Grant McLennan Memorial Fellowship in and spent two months writing songs for her third album in New York in 2014.
