Sebastian Gaskin released his debut EP Contradictions in May 2019 on his own independent label imprint LieBoy Concepts, and followed up the album with a cross-Canada tour. He’s had two number one songs on the National Indigenous Countdown and was a recent recipient of Canada’s Indigenous Music Award.
Inspired by a toxic relationship that went on for years, “Snakehold” was recorded in both Sebastian’s basement and Roman Clarke’s studio and captures the vibe of old dance/funk tunes.
In 2019, Sebastian has made appearances at established festivals throughout Canada like Festival Du Voyageur, Canadian Music Week in Toronto, sākihiwē festival in Winnipeg, Interstellar Rodeo in Edmonton, Harvest Moon Festival, BreakOut West in Whitehorse and M for Montreal.
He performed at APTN’s massive Indigenous Day Live event, and opened for legendary rapper Common at 2019’s TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival. Sebastian also toured Western Canada supporting legendary songwriter and activist Buffy Sainte-Marie in fall 2019, and frequently collaborates with DJ / Producer Boogey the Beat. He is currently signed with award-winning booking agency Paquin Artists Agency and started working with Winnipeg based artist management company Mighty Cypress Talent in early 2019.
