Martin Stehl, producer and award-winning multi-instrumentalist presents his original sophisticated debut album using blended consistent arrangements, incisive rhythms and intense melodies all infused with modern elements.
Renown musicians Torsten de Winkel (guitar) and Frank Spaniol (saxophone), are featured, along with many guest players who display their exceptional improvisations to ennoble this unique recording.
A real musicians performer, Martin Stehl is actually a drummer & pianist since the early teenage years and thus explains his composing side as well in the Pop / House / R&B & Jazz genres. What is key for his work is blending not only electronica styles together but also live instruments through his filtering talents which make the two elements come through seamlessly in the end. This is true artwork in sound design.
Always fond of well-made songs, his earliest interest was in creating and producing songs in the popmusic genre for over a decade, while becoming more relevant as he illustrated his production style under his alias name of Steely M.
