ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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. This 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. Cross between Dinosaur Jr., Wilco, and The Killers. New, memorable, and strong debut EP!

The upcoming EP Melancholy Breakdown (January 14th, 2020)
is born out of Goebelt’s downward spiral into despair and depression while struggling with an aggressive auto-immune disease that literally brought him, his marriage, and his life to a dark edge. This is the story of the fall, the pain, and the climb back from the breakdown. Each song is different, driving, and emotional and they all share the same great production. With more songs to come… this is a band to watch. The music video of their first single “Down" was awarded “Best Music Video” in the Oregon Independent Film Festival (2017) and in the Mediterranean Film Festival (2017), and it was also the Official Selection in 9 other film festivals across the US & Europe. 

GUEST STAR MUSICIANS on the EP are: 
Jeff Pevar (guitar & bass), Bret Levick (guitar & backing vocals), Shay Godwin (Drums), and Brent Daniels (soundscaping/synth on the single-Down)

PRODUCED BY BRET LEVICK
MASTERING BY Jim Chapdelaine
