FuRoJazz!

In 2012, Mathias Heise founded his fusion band Mathias Heise Quadrillion with equally
talented peers (average age only 23): Mads Christiansen (guitar), David Vang (bass), and Aksel Stadel Borum (drums) + Mathias himself on harmonica/keyboards.

The band has managed to create a completely unique sound by combining the chromatic harmonica with new, updated Funk-Rock-Jazz fusion, dubbed FuRoJazz (FU for Funk/Fusion, RO for Rock, and then off course Jazz)!

Jazz harmonies and improvisation are merged with rock and funk music’s hard-hitting primal beats, and fused into a euphoric, vibrant and very personal expression of sophisticated elegance and accessible grooves.

NEW ALBUM

The band has just returned from Los Angeles, where they finished their new album 'Decadence' as a sequel to the debut album 'Sudden Ascent' (2015), which received excellent reviews. The new album is produced by acclaimed L.A. producer Erik Zobler, who is known for his longstanding cooperation with George Duke, among many others.

MULTI-AWARDED FAST-RISING STAR

A select few musicians with harmonica as their primary instrument hold a place in the jazz hall of fame. 23-year old Mathias Heise may not be a name familiar to many jazz fans as yet, but he is a fast-rising star seemingly destined for great things.

At the age of 20, Mathias Heise was crowned 2013 Chromatic Harmonica World Champion. In 2015, he was awarded ‘New Jazz Star of The Year’ in Denmark, and the band was nominated ‘Best New Jazz Act’ at ‘Danish Music Awards’. In 2016, Mathias Heise received The Danish Crown Prince Couple’s Stardust Award. An annual award that is given to honor and highlight young Danish artists about to make an international break-through. Lately, in March 2017, he was awarded with the Ben Webster Prize, as the youngest ever.
