German singer/songwriter Matthias Sturm is an international touring and recording artist, who was nominated for the 10th Independent Music Awards (IMA’s). His acclaimed debut ‘Blood And Thunder’ has garnered positive press and extensive airplay on the US college radio core stations and alternative radio in Europe. Since then his music & videos have appeared on VH1, MTV, Prudent TV, 9XO Music and Prime TV.
Drawing upon influences from numerous cultures, Sturm has a unique sound that’s steeped in classic 70s rock and has been compared by Shoentel Music in Los Angeles as “reminiscent of Roger Waters...(but with) more layered depth and more melodic.”
‘’Solo artist Matthias Sturm presents what could be termed 'modern throwback', as his classic '70s folk-rock sensiblity is presented with a modern edge. A distinctive artist who is both daring and accessible. ‘’ - Music Connection Magazine # 61, New Music Critiques
‘’The album’s one saving grace could have been its diversity; there’s folk (the title track), strange detours into French (“L’Heure”), and indie that sounds ready to be the ending credits music to the next Wes Anderson movie (“Homesick”).‘’ - PopMatters, www.popmatters.com
‘’A very enjoyable listen, and it makes excited for the prospects of rock n’ roll’s future.‘’
