• West Coast Music

    As the name indicates West Coast Music has its origin on the American West Coast. The music emphasizes melody, harmonies and arrangements, and the vocal and instrumental performances are always with great skill and of high quality. The music is often performed by pop/rock artists from the American West Coast, but is in no way limited to any geografical area.

Martin Stenmarck is an artist whose next step is eagerly anticipated by fans all around the world.

Martin Stenmarck knew exactly where he was going forming his own rock band at the early age of 14. At 18, he received the grand prize in a National Talent Hunt contest and in the years to come Martin earned several prominent scholarships, including the renowned “Alice Babs Scholarship for Singing”. A wide talent such as Martin’s has provided him with unlimited singing options, covering grounds from Hard Rock to Jazz. When performing with Swedish jazz icons such as Ulf Wakenius and Rune Gustavsson, Martin early proved his confident voice capabilities.

In 2000, Martin Stenmarck became a true household name joining the “Rhapsody in Rock” international tour, all venues sold out. With an audience well exceeding 130,000 spectators, the final performance was held on a late November evening in a ready-to-burst Royal Albert Hall in London. Suddenly Martin’s voice and charisma was introduced to yet another fastidious audience.

Early the following year plans were laid out for the next tour – plans which eventually led to Martin Stenmarck and “Rhapsody in Rock” in April boarding a flight with destination People’s Republic of China. This tour as well would turn out to be a huge success, during which Martin’s vigorous talent was ecstatically received by the Asian audience, including a group of producers.

In early 2002, with a rapidly growing fan base in every continent, Martin decided to release an album of his own. “One”, Martin Stenmarck’s first solo album hit the stores on November 20, 2002. Warmly welcomed by Swedish reviewers, Martin’s debut album has been well received all over Europe. In Germany, Martin’s hit single “I’m Falling” landed atop of the charts. In Italy his album is currently climbing.

Martin is deeply dedicated in social work, supporting several international charity organisations, and by December of 2003 he was honoured the title Sweden’s “Ambassador for SOS Children’s Villages”. Later that year, Martin also got the opportunity travelling with Her Royal Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden and the “Childhood Foundation” for a fundraising event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The success was immediate when Martin entered the stage facing a 100,000-head crowd.

The year 2004 has this far been a busy one for Martin; recording his album titled “Upp och Ner Sånger”, all songs exclusively written by Martin himself in favour of SOS Children’s Villages, and going on a nation-wide tour with “Rhapsody in Rock”. But this year Martin also peaked his career to date, when he in May was invited by a group of Asian producers to perform in front of 700 million viewers of the Beijing International TV Awards – this as the solely invited international artist.

Currently Martin Stenmarck spends a lot of time in the studio recording songs for his much awaited second album. Once again working with his younger brother David, a well-renowned songwriter and producer who is collaborating with international artists such as Westlife.

Meanwhile Martin considers accepting the leading part of “Aragorn” in “The Lord of the Rings”; the most comprehensive upcoming West End theatrical new production in 30 years, based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic trilogy.

Martin Stenmarck is an artist whose next step is eagerly anticipated by fans all around the world.
