Sebastian Lane’s roots run deep in music and blues history. Both his father and grandfather are noted award-winning blues musicians, and it’s obvious the music gene was passed down. Along with his lead vocals and guitar, the band he’s formed is full of local talent. It includes one of Omaha’s best keyboardists, Mitch Towne; outstanding lead guitarist and notable BluesEd-alum, Ben Curran; and a tight rhythm section, with Dain Armbrust on bass and Kevin Fries on drums (both of whom are BluesEd alumni), keeping the groove. The modern-age rock band, with obvious blues influences, seeks to keep the live rock, southern rock, and blues performances relevant to their generation.

Their debut album, Walkin’ By Myself, was released in July 2018 and gained them spots opening for acts like Jimmie Vaughan, Marcus King Band, and Robert Randolph to name a few. It has also topped various blues and rock charts and accumulated over a quarter million streams on Apple Music and Spotify, across over 30 countries. Sebastian was also recently nominated for Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards’ “Artist of the Year” and “Best Blues Artist”.

Playing with Fire is pleased to have this up and coming local band perform on our stage.
