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
