Sebastian began his musical journey as a self-taught drummer at age 14. At 17 he began teaching himself to play guitar, bass and keyboards. He played drums for various types of bands, while at the same time developing his skills as a keyboardist. As his skills developed, he slowly merged into making keyboards his main instrument and main outlet of expression. Sebastian has never studied nor does he read a single note of music
By age 22 he had already recorded his first instrumental CD “Prelude”. Today he has recorded 7 CDs and 3 “LIVE IN CONCERT” DVDs. Sebastian’s music is a blend of Classical Music with Rock, Latin, Jazz and New Age, creating an electrifying genre of its very own.

In every life and in every career there are always major struggles and battles to fight. Sebastian’s fight was dealing with the loss of his best friend and mother, Miriam Sidi. Miriam passed away at age 54 from breast cancer. Miriam continues to inspire him every day and Sebastian’s main goal is for his friends and fans to get to know his mother thru his music.
