"LIVE at McCabes"

"Not only is Clark a creative and talented musician, his stage presence is both witty and confident, with an inner flame that easily calms, much like an attractive cult leader without all the bad stuff."
- Santa Monica Observer

"'Songs From a Van' review"

"...Sebastian has a sweet, pleasant voice which is ideal for his engaging folk/pop tunes. What he does best is airy, summer folk-pop, double tracking his vocals over acoustic guitar and bongoes. Songs like 'Home' and 'Baby (Let's Start Over)' have a wistful feel, but are also charming and catchy."
-Phil Suggitt - SHINDIG! Magazine

"New Music Guide"

Lastly in this edition, and weighing in with barely a whisper, is the rather interesting Sebastian Clark. His debut album was recorded inside the van that has also served as his home for the past two years. If that wasn't remarkable enough, his music's actually rather lovely - even attracting the praise of BBC 6Music's Tom Robinson.

All the cool kids are referencing the '80s in their music these days, but Sebastian Clark is one step ahead and looks to the '60s and '70s for his musical inspiration. Simon and Garfunkel would be the most obvious comparison, but Clark uses his van (and bottles of his own piss) for percussion - which I'm fairly sure Paul and Art never did. - Music OMH

"Nic Harcourt on Music"

"His self-released album Songs From A Van was in fact recorded on a portable studio installed in the VW van in which he lives and tours. Reminiscent of the confessional folk singers of the '60s and '70s, Clark has taken the do-it-yourself ethic and turned into a self-sustaining career."

Sebastian Clark & The Facets - 'Music For Smart People' release Spring 2009



Sebastian Clark & The Facets formed out of the ashes –literally– of Sebastian Clark's solo days supporting his DIY album 'Songs From A Van' which he recorded in the VW van he lived and toured in. It blew up Christmas Eve 2006, at which point Sebastian hitchhiked back to Los Angeles. In January 2007 a 1973 VW Super Beetle Sebastian was borrowing pulled up next to a 1999 VW Modern Beetle that Normandie Wilson was driving, the two drivers met, and for the next three hours they proceeded to 'nerd out' over their mutual love for obscure 1960's pop. The Facets was born. They attracted Jack, Sean, and Tanya to their cause, and are currently putting the finishing touches on their upcoming album 'Music For Smart People'.
