Born on Oct 2, 1951 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, Sting’s original name is Gordon Matthew Sumner. Celebrated for his great singing as The Police Band’s member and as a solo musician, Sting has created an irreplaceable place for himself in the music industry. Additionally, he is a renowned songsmith, actor and an energetic philanthropist.
Having bonded with various orchestras earlier, Sting earned an insane popularity with legendary band The Police in 1970s and ‘80s where he teamed with guitar player Henri Padovani and drummer Stewart Copeland. While their first song “Roxanne” did not do well, the trilogy received some fame with CBGB’s, a youngster rock retreat they played in a van in NYC.
Their first release Outlandos d’Amour in 1978 brought the band much popularity that soon grabbed positions in both British and American charts. The re-stated “Roxanne”, “Can’t Stand Losing You” and “So Lonely” are other chartbusters of the Police Band. Not only was he a consistent songwriter but also made his debut in Quadrophenia, a musical drama flick in 1978.
Brimming with different music genres from blues to progressive rock, the ensemble continued to lure new musical enthusiasts with its second collection Reggatta de Blanc in 1979. Indeed, the release snatched the first Grammy Award in 1980 under the best rock instrumental category.
The band got its leading rock position with release Zenyatta Mondatta in 1980 with singles like “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da” and “Don’t Stand So Close to Me”. Although the band toured heavily it still managed to launch another collection in the following year. Ghost in the Machine’s “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic” in 1981 racked up some top charts in America.
His solo singing career kick started with the single “Spread a Little Happiness” he wrote himself. After reuniting with the group for one more release Synchronicity in 1983, Sting decided that band should take some time off.
His serious singing as a solo music artist started with The Dream of the Blue Turtles in 1985. He associated with various ragtime music artists embracing Branford Marsalis. Nothing Like the Sun in 1987, The Soul Cages in 1991, Ten Summoner’s Tales in 1993 and Mercury Falling in 1996 are some solo releases that earned him high fame.
From eerie chants to invading instrumental bits to cherry popular numbers, Sting penned down and released chartbusters like “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You”, “Englishman in New York” and “Fields of Gold”.
He even tried his hands at acting and was a part of drama Dune in 1984 and the renowned British crime flick Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels in 1998. The Mighty in 1998, The Thomas Crown Affair in 1999 and The Emperor’s New Groove in 2000 are some other singles he also worked on.
While Brand New Day won the musician a Grammy Accolade in 2000, the releases like All This Time in 2001, Sacred Love in 2003 and Songs from the Labyrinth in 2006 moved him to a whole new singing level.
Sting’s 2013 album, ‘The Last Ship’ holds special importance in his career as it drew inspiration from his childhood days.
