Sebastian Gaskin is a multi-instrumentalist R&B singer-songwriter based in Winnipeg, who grew up in Tataskweyak Cree Nation, or Split Lake as it’s better known. Sebastian writes and self produces music that is anything but formulaic, thanks to eclectic musical tastes in R&B, Hip Hop, Metal, and Punk. The Winnipeg Free Press says: “...think Post Malone mixed with Frank Ocean, all swag and smooth vocals, hits of hip-hop and rap, rounded out with emotive thoughtful lyrics.”.
Gaskin is the recipient of the 2021 Western Canadian Music Award for R&B Artist of the Year, the 2021 Kevin Walters Songwriting Award, and was also chosen to attend the 2021 Allan Slaight Juno Masterclass.
Following the release of Gaskin’s debut EP, Contradictions, on their own imprint, LieBoy Concepts, Sebastian made some impressive strides. Gaskin headlined a cross-Canada club tour, and made appearances at established festivals throughout the country, including Festival du voyageur, Canadian Music Week, Interstellar Rodeo, and Calgary Stampede. They have supported artists like Common, T-Pain, and has toured supporting the iconic songwriter and activist Buffy Sainte-Marie.
