Mathias Heise Quadrillion

Mathias Heise Quadrillion
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 Heise (harmonica/keyboards).
A Brand New Music Genre is Born!
The band has managed to create a completely unique sound combining the chromatic
harmonica with new, updated Funk-Rock-Jazz fusion: 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.
In fact, Mathias Heise Quadrillion claim to have given birth to a brand new music genre named
New Album in the Making
Currently, the band is working on a new album – featuring own compositions – as a sequel
to their debut album Sudden Ascent from 2015, which received excellent reviews. The new
album is set to be released Spring/Summer 2017.
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 was presented with The Danish Crown Prince Couple’s
Stardust Award. This annual award is given to honor and highlight young Danish artists
about to make an international break-through. And in March 2017, he will be awarded with the
Ben Webster Prize, being the youngest ever to receive this prestigious award.
