Following Her Voice…
Gwen Sebastian grew up on a cattle farm in North Dakota. She began singing with her parents at a young age and thus, her love of music grew. She made her way to Nashville, TN and has been touring the country for the past 15 years.
After auditioning for Season 2 of the hit television show, “The Voice”, Gwen became a part of ‘Team Blake.” Surprisingly, success on the show, touring with coach Blake Shelton, playing the Grand Ole Opry, being named one of Country Weekly’s “Artist’s to Watch” and opening for Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley on the Locked and Reloaded tour haven’t altered her course. If anything, they simply propelled her forward. Gwen’s stint on “The Voice” came full circle when she mentored ‘Team Blake’. She had her first #1 hit single in 2014 with “My Eyes”, a song which she is featured on Blake’s album & nominated for a 2014 ACC Award. “The Voice has definitely catapulted my career,” she explains. “It was very validating and everything that’s happened from that point on is just at a different level.” She also credits Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert with helping her along the way & including her in each of their bands as their back up singer. “They are two of the biggest artists in the industry, but still make time to help me. I love them both and I can’t thank them enough.”
Gwen is looking forward to what 2016 brings. In-between performing her own shows and touring with Miranda Lambert, she is currently writing and working on a new album, set to be released in 2016. Her most recent single “Throw It Back” was featured on Sirius XM & is one of her favorites to perform live. And performing live is one of her passions. She’ll continue touring & traveling the country for as long as she can, but says that “no matter where I go, or what I do, I’ll never forget where I come from.”
