We had the good fortune of connecting with Kevin Seals and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kevin, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success is staying consistent. As a managing partner at Seven Entertainment we provide our clients with a detailed schedule that allows the artist to create freely while providing structure systems for daily, weekly and monthly goals.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Seven Entertainment is an artist management and entertainment group: a company that brings a fresh and innovative approach to artist development. Having established a strong presence in the music and entertainment industry, Seven has garnered an esteemed reputation from representing 4x Grammy-award winning producer, Brian Kennedy and PmBata a rising star who recently signed with 300 Entertainment. It wasn’t easy to get where we are now as a company. The biggest challenge that we had to overcome within the last year was changing our process of communication, not being able to take meetings, attend networking events, or to sit face to face with our clients has been difficult. However, as a company we saw these obstacle as an opportunity to get creative and allow ourselves to take those challenges head on. What I’m most excited about is the future of the Seven Entertainment. As we continue to expand, we are in the position to help our artists become the best version of themselves professionally and assist with future goals and dreams. Throughout the journey the biggest thing I learned is that the proof is in the daily work and learning from those mistakes, that will inevitably happen. Those crucial mistakes guide and teach you what works and what doesn’t. If you can remain consistent throughout those details the sky is the limit.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
One of my favorite places to have a meal is Mastro’s, the entire menu is great, but the butter cake it is to die for. The Association, The Edison and Perch are located in downtown Los Angeles. These spots are perfect for a casual work meeting, a night on the town and not to mention the drinks are amazing. LA has amazing weather and the best way to soak it in is through the views a visitor to the city has to visit Griffith Observatory, the Getty Center and do some hiking through one of the canyons. I am lucky to be surrounded by musicians, producers, and creatives, that also happen to be cool people who offer great conversation and interesting ideas. Taking a moment to reset is necessary. My secret hideaway spot is the Lake Shrine Temple, all are welcomed to embark on a journey through a golden world, green landscapes and a ocean breeze. I love to go there to pray, focus, meditate, set goals and relax! The greatest thing about LA is everyday has the opportunity to be adventurous, fun and exciting! The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I could not talk about success without recognizing my family, each member has provided me with support, love and encouragement throughout the years. Special thanks to my brother Brian Kennedy for introducing me to the entertainment business and through his leadership and shared life lessons, I have established a strong network of peers that I can trust and count on. I would also like to shout out my business partner and close friend DeAndre Wiseman. He continue to holds me accountable for any decision I make and always offers a different perspective. One book that I stand by is “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It has given me confidence in my words, it teaches me not to take anything personally, not to make assumptions and always do my best professionally and in life.
