Listening to Blair Atkinson’s oft times heavy lyrical content is like an exercise in introspection.” – Frank McGwire, Brandon Sun

"Sebastian Owl seems like a band from a prior era who just came back from a long hiatus.. the band has a knack for writing deep lyrics, creating comforting melodies, and staging energetic live shows that are reminiscent of legendary bands like the Band, the Byrds or Little Feat." -- Tobi Nifesi, The Manitoban

It takes a lot for a folk group to jump out in Winnipeg, but Sebastian Owl’s chemistry, song structure and charisma help.” – Nicholas Friesen, The Uniter

Sebastian Owl reminds me of endless fields and open skies. This is comfort music, it’s open, relaxed, easy to listen to, enjoyable, and it just feels good to have it on the stereo.” – Rob Hamilton, Quirks & Quiddities 

It’s so easy to get lost in the laid back sound that the depth of the lyrics can catch you off guard, albeit in a good way.” – Broose Tulloch, Stylus Magazine
