Saint Sebastian - The Band
Saint Sebastian is the debut solo project fronted by songwriter and vocalist, Greg Goebelt, with a distinct Pacific Northwest sound that can be described as “melody with melancholy” backed by a “rock-solid beat,” and firmly in the alternative/indie rock genre. Saint Sebastian's debut EP, Melancholy Breakdown, has a unique, distinct, and identifiable sound with strong, melodic guitar hooks that stick to your musical memory. Songs include driving rock-solid bass and drums, thick and crunchy guitars, and vocal hooks with a hint of mid 60’s pop-psychedelic bridges. The defining musicality of the 80’s and 90’s are pulled together by Goebelt’s smooth, buoyant voice and lyrics that ride the songs through a visual vocal landscape. Crossed between Dinosaur Jr., Wilco, and The Killers. New, memorable, and strong debut EP scheduled for radio release January 14th, 2020!
