The EP, Melancholy Breakdown has a unique, distinct and identifiable sound with strong melodic guitar hooks that stick to your musical memory. Centipede Girl flows along like a steady train, hook after hook, reminiscent of The Dandy Warhols, but then stops and spits out a sizzling Van Halen-like lead, effortlessly executed by guitar wizard Jeff Pevar. What’s amazing is the organic attention they’re getting from college radio stations all over the US. College music directors are their own bosses and play what they love and skip the rest. With more radio adds each week and a growing audience on streaming services like Spotify, it seems like Saint Sebastian is catching on college by college, city by city, state by state.
“Here’s an album that will give a new breath to Gothic fans and fans who just plain-out miss a good college album rock album that’s not like everything else. -Gale Rosenberg, WeB N’ Retail
“Think mid to late 70’s song structure, mixed with 80’s early new wave guitar hooks, supported by a 90’s guitar attack and 2020 soundscaping & production. Add to this Goebelt’s Psychedelic Furs meets Peter Murphy style vocals and you have a cool sound and great debut EP!” -Roger Rodgers, Ophwurld Media

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.
Guest star musicians include Jeff Pevar-guitar & bass (Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jefferson Starship, Marc Cohn, more), Bret Levick-producer, guitar & backing vocals (acclaimed songwriter/producer), Shay Godwin-Drums (Andre Day, Dirty Diamonds), and Brent Daniels- soundscaping/synth on the single-Down (Trailers/Films: Marvel, Sony, HBO, Paramount).
The EP, Melancholy Breakdown was born out of Goebelt’s downward spiral into despair & depression while struggling with an aggressive autoimmune disease that literally brought him, his marriage and his life to a dark edge. This EP is part of the story of the fall, the pain and the climb back from the breakdown. Each song is different, driving, emotional and all share the same great products.
