sebastian – michaels – wall-street-blues
Written by Marco Nieuwlaat on 11 september 2021
Rock ‘n’ roll is back! Sebastian Michaels returns to the heyday of classic rock and hard-driving blues. Raised on AC/DC and Def Leppard, BB King and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sebastian’s musical instinct is to always take the groove back to basics.
From growing up in Asia and Australia to extensive globetrotting later, there was always music. Through the years, Sebastian has jammed down and dirty in greasy bars and professional studios. While he loved playing to the old classics, he felt that over time rock ‘n’ roll had lost its edge. So when the world shut down in 2020, Sebastian took time out but he also did something else – he started to write songs.
His journey is clear; bring the holy trinity of the rhythm guitar wall of riffs, the classic searing blues lead and the singer-songwriter narrative back to foot-tapping, fist-pumping domination.
Wall Street Blues is his first international release. A full album is in the works and is set for release near the end of the year.
