Sequester is the musical project of Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Boc. Founded in 2005, all of the material thus far has been written, performed, recorded and produced by Boc, having drawn inspiration from various genres of music, including heavy and thrash metal, progressive and psychedelic rock, traditional folk, grunge, alternative, synthwave, blues, jazz, and classical.

Sequester’s sound has been described as being expressive and melodic, with frequent use of counterpoint and harmonized layering between and within the guitars and vocals. The songs are usually long in duration due to progressive structuring and arrangement, utilizing numerous sectional changes throughout each piece.

Video games and literature are noted as the main lyrical influences. Topics include fantasy, horror, science fiction, history, folklore and mythology, as well as personal reflections on life, human nature, consciousness, philosophy and spirituality; generally they are sung with a clean voice, but oftentimes with gritty or more aggressive overtones.

Graduating with a combined degree in Music and Computer Science from the University of Victoria, Ryan Boc had been writing and recording music both in his classes and spare time. He obtained initial exposure after posting a number of Blind Guardian covers on the band's official forum. Met with positive feedback in regards to his guitar playing and unique vocals, Boc moved on to releasing originals under the name Sequester, and has since created his own sound by mixing elements from an array of different musical styles.
