Sebastiaan Gommeren grew up in a house where mainly jazz records were played so he got the taste of it very early on. In 2003 he began his music studies at the Conservatory of Ghent with Stefan Lievestro.
He acquired the necessary experience at, among others, Gazz Light, Nybros Quartet, Jasper Huysentruyt Trio and Concord Jazz Ensemble. Alongside the Zola Quartet he is still active with the Vintage Jazz Cats, Nathan Daems Quintet and La Femme Belge. In Ghent you can often find him during weekly jam sessions in De Geus van Gent and Hot Club de Gand.
