Bio

After an impressive first six months as a solo artist, highlighted by an appearance supporting San Cisco at a sold-out Alexander Theatre in April, American-born and Melbourne-raised songwriter Seb Szabo has set about putting his big-hearted songs to record with the help of producer Josh Barber (Gretta Ray) at The Aviary Studios.

"Tears We've Been Holding Back", an ode and farewell to a special friendship, is a perfect encapsulation of his sound. Combining rich, warm vocals, tender lyrics and an expansive musicality reminiscent of early Coldplay, the result is a passionate interplay between textured guitars, melodic string arrangements and powerful rhythms.

Seb and his band bring his sweeping musical vision to the stage with a live show designed to uplift and inspire. With many more songs planned for the studio, keep an ear out for more music from Seb in 2020.

'Tears We've Been Holding Back' is out everywhere now.

so much emotion in those strings and keys, you're a born story teller.

Man. Seb. Good chorus, good lyrics, good voice. Feels like you're on to something here.
