singer-songwriter based in Auvergne, France (E108)

About: Matthias Sturm

Matthias Sturm: east German born, France based singer-songwriter played in E108 of the ArenaCast.

...I'm hailing from East Germany which is a story for itself, but anyway, my very first performance took place, as I was coernced into doing a military service, in times,
as I was observed by the National Security due to my 'political incorrectness'. I was singing in front of 600 soldiers, singing Marlene Dietrich's 'Sag mir wo die Blumen sind', a famous anti-war song. Needless to say, that was both, funny and dangerous same ways...

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as an artist?
If the public awareness continue to spread in this speed since my debut album was released in Januar 2012, I'll certain establish my name and brand in the global alternative pop world. I'm going to be the King in my Niche, so to say!

2. Can you name some peculiarities that define the music scene in your town/country?
Well, I'm a German artist, painter & singer/songwriter, recently living in France. I'm not common with the 'term' hometown or local scene anymore...

3. What do you think of episode 108? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
... Joe Grande with Brighter Day, liked much the airy groove and his vocals, very much old school.

4. Is there a story behind your song "What A Day"?
What The Day is kind of serenating impressions of a wonderful, quirky summer day,
a summer anthem to everyboday enjoying summer days of 2012!

5. Please share your nearest plans. What are you currently working on?
I'm recently team up with West Coast prominence musician's friends to put new tunes together, later this year produced by a Top UK producer, who is willing to take my act on the next level. But it's all in a secret yet, so folks, check in with the press releases later in this year! I'm headliner of a tour at Dubai in the last quarter of 2012 in association with VH1, the Dubai Cable Networks and the Rolling Stone Magazine (Middle East). There is also a brand new music clip to be TV premiered on VH1, 9XO and SS Music, firstly in India and Dubai during July.
