Sebastian Spanache

Jazz pianist and composer.

BJA award winning jazz pianist covering all aspects of performance and audio production. With over two decades of experience in composing, releasing, and touring with live ensembles; studio sequencing, tracking, mixing A/V material in a wide spectrum of genres; as well as sound design and foley recording.

Having previously led a successful trio in Romania, Sebastian is now focusing on his solo piano career with the launch of his new album 'UPAMERCADO' in 2023.


Upamercado is a three-year unfolding musical travel log through Latin America that weaves the artist's spellbinding compositional journey with the essence of landscapes and rhythms across the region. Recorded in mono.

From the lively rhythms of samba and bossa nova and the melancholic melodies of bolero and tango - to the improvisational aura of straight-ahead lines and Eastern European vibes, Upamercado offers a unique and captivating listening experience.

NEW! Ultra-detailed and complete piano transcriptions of all six tracks in digital PDF format. Transcribed by the composer.
