Sleep Deprived Music review: Sebastian Gaskin

https://www.facebook.com/sebastiangaskin/

Have you guys heard of Sebastian Gaskin? Well, you are all in luck because I’m sharing his music with you today. He’s from Split Lake, Manitoba but he looks so familiar . . .

He kind of resembles my boyfriend. They could be long lost cousins or siblings. It’s like listening to my boyfriend sing to me but not exactly. I’ve never heard my boyfriend sing – just play the guitar and bass

It has all of the feelings of love – the good and the bad. The falling in love and the heartache. What is it that we love about songs with a touch of heartache? I think it’s that it’s a feeling we’ve all had. Commonality.

Gaskin’s music is like a more modern version of old school 90s R & B. Plus he plays the guitar just like my boyfriend. Except that my boyfriend plays metal and jam band stuff.

3. Where would you want to listen to this record?

I would want to listen to this album everywhere. So in the living room, bathroom, kitchen, backyard, computer room. I will definitely miss going to concerts this spring. Thank goodness for YouTube and Sebastian Gaskin.
