SHiFT was founded by Seb in 2008 as an ever-changing stage experience. Far from being a touring band, SHiFT is a show. With collaborations from different musicians from different parts of the world. Tthe onstanding formation comprises of Mike Andreux playing guitars (acoustic and electric), Dan Axtell playing bass and keys and Michael David Bates playing drums and percussion. Seb joins in with lead voice and piano and there is always a backing vocalist/guitarist in the room that comes on stage to fill in as a show invite.

Seb is here with SHiFT in Buenos Aires in 2008. The on-stage movie screen had to be placed to one side instead of behind the band because of the type of projection. In this performance we have Jano Seitun on bass, Jere Novoa on drums and Melanie Greene doing amazing backing vocals. Seb and Mike are up front side by side

More of SHiFT on that magical first night back in 2008. The satge was being used for a children's play so you can see the scenery of a forest in the background, which worked out as an incredible backdrop to the band and Seb's songs.
Seb and the very first SHiFT collaboration back in 2008. This is the final curtain call lineup and Seb is explaining he and SHiFT are on stage to raise awareness sharing different projects and aspects of humanity and society to show that the world is changing and how it could change for the better. Through Seb's music and the playing of the incredible musicians SHiFT has had through the years, the message is strong and the experience moving.
