BIO

With a commanding voice & a charming presence onstage, California-born & Melbourne-raised Seb Szabo reimagines his own luckless anecdotes into Springsteen-esque rock full of joy, humour & honesty. 

 

Detailing autobiographical stories of love with an abundance of heart & honesty, Seb’s songs put the “hope” in hopeless romantic. His appetite for connection & a childhood spent travelling, dreaming of following in the footsteps of idols Coldplay has led to a colorful, uplifting brand of indie rock blossoming before our eyes.

 

Cutting his teeth on Melbourne's thriving songwriter circuit and supporting San Cisco at the end of university, Seb released debut EP “Staring Out the Windows” in 2021, accumulating 100,000+ streams, gaining Triple J Unearthed's acclaim and duetting with Gretta Ray on single “Twice Over.” A relentless live performer, he has supported artists such as San Cisco, Steph Strings & Cap Carter on some of Victoria’s biggest stages (The Corner Hotel, Fed Square, Queenscliff Music Festival) & toured the USA/UK. 

 

Fresh from a stint living in London in November 2023 alongside Alaska’s Medium Build through winning Sofar’s 2023 Artist Residency Program, Seb has returned bright-eyed and inspired with a suitcase full of new songs. 

 

Coming off a series of sold out secret backyard shows in Melbourne showcasing new stories, Seb & his enigmatic band promise to bring the same warmth, energy & hilarity to a hometown show at the Bergy Bandroom on May 16 in celebration of brand-new single “Perfect Symmetry”.
