Singer, creative multitalented musician and cosmopolite, Roland Meyer de Voltaire or professionally known as SCHWARZ was born to German-Bolivian parents and grew up in Bonn, Dublin, Moscow and Beijing. Curiously gathering impressions around the world has helped shape Roland Meyer de Voltaire into the individual he is today: A musical visionary and creator of electronic sound sculptures that tell their own story.
SCHWARZ captures orchestral moments with electronic beats in his music, united by a rare courage to great emotions, to feel self-indulgent. Hereby Meyer de Voltaire opens a new chapter after his band Voltaire.
The atmospheric density of the sound of SCHWARZ is reminiscent of electronic pio- neers like Woodkid or Moderat, fans of Hurts or Depeche Mode should also feel at home.
The latest ‘Cold Sunlight’, a cool-futuristic soundtrack for a vintage 80s dance-floor is the missing puzzle piece on the debut EP of SCHWARZ. In the video for the single, the artist can be seen for the first time. Together with col- leagues of various artistic disciplines, he completes the picture of SCHWARZ.
‘Cold Sunlight’ arrives from his next EP ‘In Your Eyes’, which will be released worldwide on January 19th. In addition to four original songs there are also two remixes of big – and stylistically different – names in German electronic music: Robot Koch and Schiller.
