ROCKWiRED RADiO PROFiLES PRESENTS:
THE MESMERiZiNG SOUND OF MATTHiAS STURM
AND HiS NEW CD BLOOD AND THUNDER
FEBRUARY 28, 2012 - Last year, among his many other accolades, MATTHIAS STURM was nominated for the 10th INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS (IMAs) in the SHORT FORM MUSIC VIDEO for “BLOOD AND THUNDER,” the title track from his debut full length album. Considering his status as a musical citizen of the world, it’s no surprise that he chose the dreamy JOHN LENNON and PINK FLOYD influenced global harmony song “PEACE ON EARTH” as the unofficial lead single. The tune is gaining airplay from Triple AAA stations in the U.S. to outlets in India and Dubai. Sturm will be headlining a tour in Dubai the last quarter of 2012 in association with W.O.A International, the Dubai Cable Networks, VH1 and with the support of the Rolling Stone (Middle East). The multi-talented singer/songwriter’s life leading up to his emergence as a solo artist rolls like a high spirited travelogue, with his heartfelt voice conveying highly poetic music and lyrics that, in his words, invite the listener to “step into a Byronesque universe inhabited by muses.” STURM hails from East Germany; was heavily inspired by Mississippi Delta Blues and jazz a la MILES DAVIS and JOHN COLTRANE; attended the evening classes of the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden; and writes most of his songs at home in a large 16th Century Fortress in the Countryside outside of his adopted hometown of Paris. He headed to L.A. to record BLOOD AND THUNDER at BLIND MELON’s former studio with producer DAVID HILLIS, best known for his work with PEARL JAM, AFGHAN WIGS and JAMES BLUNT. The collection also features two-time Grammy nominated songstress ERIN ALDEN (keyboards, piano, arrangements) and drummer DAVE KRUSEN, who anchored Pearl Jam as a founding member.
