ABOUT ME

Michael Sebastian creates ambient vibey music using guitar, vocals, drum pads and synth. Improvising and building loops on the fly, he can adapt to the mood of any space.

The set can liquidise tension at your business drinks, converge families at a wedding reception, or propel an atmosphere at a cocktail bar, gallery, or hotel. No matter what your event, Sebastian will provide a musical experience that is authentic and 'in the moment'. He takes influence from all genres of music and subtly fuses them to create a sound that a varied audience can relate to. In addition to that his impeccable timing and feel means that the music is always moving, oozing energy.

The set sits somewhere between atmospheric music and a live performance, so it doesn't intrude too heavily on an event. Though if people like and often do, they can take a moment to sit and watch the music, which, with four instruments being recorded live, can be quite entertaining.

In the summer of 2014 after travelling through Europe busking his way from city to city, honing his craft and playing to survive Michael Sebastian made his way to London. Between playing regular gigs with his signed full band, composing, recording and busking regularly, Sebastian began to perform his loop set in venues and at events around the city.

Beginning with a residency in a cafe and gallery called the Bowery in Camden, he has performed at various functions and events in London including: Stolenspace Gallery - Brick Lane, The Skip Garden - Kings Cross, The Bike Shed - Shoreditch, Rebel's Alliance - Shoreditch, Spitalfields Market - Spitalfields, Acrylicise - Shoreditch.

"Your music silences the city, the cars, the buses, the people. The booze and the drugs, that doesn't work, but your music does. Thank-you." - Homeless Spectator

Aspen Glencross - #ourfield

Michael played at the launch evening of our event on a chilly winter evening at the Skip Garden in King's Cross. He created a lovely ambiance which was perfect for people entering, drinking mulled cider and chatting. So may people at our event commented on how beautiful his set was!

He sorted all his equipment, placing himself in the best location for guests and was totally professional and got on with the job. We would have him back any time, and really recommend him!

Having Michael Sebastian playing music at the Henri launch party was absolutely wonderful, it set a fantastic mood and atmosphere from the start evening while guests were arriving. Taking into consideration the style of the brand, he played music that suited the event perfectly and I think having him playing raised the 'standard' of the event significantly. I would highly recommend Michael and I look forward to potential collaborations in the future.

Syd Kelly

He crafts beautiful guitar loops and plays flowing intricate melodies to them. This lifted the mood of the cafe and created an energy which is unable to be replicated by playing records like we usually do. His music reflected the feel of the cafe, playing more exciting stuff when busy and calmer when quiet. The music was never intrusive and we would always receive compliments about his playing when he came in.

Over the autumn and winter months of 2014, Michael Sebastian played regular Sunday sets at our cafe Tower 47, which is now trading as The Bowery in Camden. He arrived with all the necessary equipment to perform, and would play to the customers in the cafe. I would recommend him to any venue that is looking for some live music to enhance the customers’ experience when they visit the venue. Alongside this he was always punctual and friendly.

Best Wishes, Syd Kelly, Director, The Bowery

Carmen Von Hanisch

Michael played at our son's 25th birthday party and contributed hugely to a relaxed atmosphere. His music is touching and speaks to every age. His manner is very professional and personally engaging at the same time. I can highly recommend Michael as a musician for every event.
