"A born storyteller." Triple J's Declan Byrne


Born in San Francisco and raised in Melbourne, Seb Szabo’s early musical days were spent teaching himself piano by ear, inspired by the cinematic indie rock of Coldplay and Kings of Leon. A gifted lyricist with a resonant voice reminiscent of Gang of Youths’ Dave Le’aupepe, Seb strikes an engaging figure onstage, with presence honed by years of relentless gigging. 

 

Having supported the likes of San Cisco in 2019, his as-yet unreleased songs have enraptured audiences in 2020 alike, winning Queenscliff Music Festival’s Foot-In-The-Door Competition and being named a Grand Finalist in Listen Up Music’s National Songwriting Competition. 

 

Seb’s recently-recorded debut EP, a vividly emotional portrait of a tumultuous long-distance romance produced by Josh Barber (Gretta Ray), is set for release in 2021. 

 

A joyful and charismatic performer, Seb Szabo and his enigmatic band deliver an honest, inclusive and powerful live show designed to lift your spirits and empty your lungs.
