SEBASTIEN HEINTZ

During his childhood, Sebastien was introduced to the guitar… an instrument that led him to immerse himself in music.
From then on, he gave himself over to it entirely, discovering the essence of his instruments (electric guitar, acoustic, lapsteel, synth, piano) to create pure, emotive music.

On the road, Sebastien opened himself to new horizons and sounds, gaining new influences and friends along the way.

Sometimes his songs originate from a few words or a few notes, but it is always the harmony and friendship with his long time friend, Loric Mathez, that evokes the magic. Their collaboration as well as the ideas gathered together made way for a new project… After finding the last, but not least, piece of their puzzle, they started working together. It is in early 2015, that Sebastien and Loric Mathez (drums & production), joined by David Saunders (bass), devoted themselves to the production and recording of their new EP, EPONYME (Sebastien-H). The EP was recorded and mixed in London at their friend’s studio, Nikbeats, based in Tileyard Studios.

Since this EP, they embarked on their journey into a world of music, a learning process and a profound discovery of who they are.

EPONYME is now available in shops as well as on all the digital platforms.

In 2008, while he’s developing his musical skills at the EJMA Lausanne, Sebastien records a first EP, ‘MYSTERE MYSTIQUE’.

Five years later, Sebastien starts collaborating as as a guitarist and pianist with his friends who form the folk rock duet, Marzella. In May of the same year, he is chosen by Universal and Matthieu Chedid, aka -M-, to join him for a guitar hero performance in Marseille at the Dôme.

In October 2013, during a wild jam organised by Matthieu Chedid in a basement of north London, Sebastien meets Zee Gachette, front woman of the blues rock band Z-Star. He joins the Z-Star a few weeks later for an epic Jimi Hendrix tribute gig. From then he joins the Z-Star collective on stage as a lead guitarist and starts touring around Europe and Australia.

Whilst he’s completing his Bachelor degree in BIMM London, he records and release an EP, ‘EPONYME’, in Tilyeard Studios.

After touring Australia with Z-Star, Sebastien and Zee created a new band named Z-Star Delta. The stripped back duo flipside of the rock band Z-Star. In this project, both of the musicians mix their artistic universes, experiment with sounds and travel through musical genres.

During 2016, Sebastien tours around Switzerland and France with his project, Sebastien-H and makes recognised appearances on stages such as Venoge Festival, Le Chat Noir and Le Bleu Lézard.

At the end of the year 2016, Sebastien announces that he will carry on his musical partnership with his friend Loric. This time as a production in Switzerland. Watch this space…
