The New Album are now out on Itunes !
Powerful voice. Musical authenticity. This is the foundation of which the new duo, Broken Door, is building their modern mix of pop-, rock and soulful music. The music industry has over the last couple of years, been more a stage for the producers rather than the music creators. With their musical mixture, Pier Schmid and Tobias Östlund are searching for new musical ideas. ”If you listen to the music that is produced today, you quickly realize that most of it actually is based on melodies created decades ago”, Pier says..... Two musical individuals.. An important part of Broken Door..s creativity is their seperate musical backgrounds. Pier has a long record of hits, both national and international and has also a long experience of jazz music. Tobias has created his own personal style of singing, from different kinds of music genres, such as rock, jazz, soul as well as musicals. One thing that also connects Pier and Tobias is that both of them have studied music..... The first meeting.. The duo first met in late 2006 when Pier wanted to try out some new musical ideas and was looking for a voice that could deliver the message. He had heard of Tobias and asked him to come to the studio. After a little while it was obvious that there was something unique between Pier..s melodies and Tobias.. voice. ”Your songs suited my voice, but they also challenged it”, Tobias says about their first meeting. ”And at the same time, your voice helped to develop my ideas and took them to a new level”, Pier fills in”the result of our work became more powerful than each part on their own”. Today, Broken Door has a long list of songs which all are combining Piers strong melodies and Tobias.. unique voice..... The next step.. Broken Door made their very first show on the 25th of January 2008 in Karlstad, in the western parts of Sweden. On stage they are accompanied by four well-qualified musicians. Tobias says ”This is music that is best played and experienced live, which you will notice”. The duo often relates their music to the same feeling that comes from listening to music in movies. ” We want to create pictures in the listeners head and add emotions to them, whether you listen to your Ipod or at a live gig" Pier says, “You can experience that with honest music and a good performance, a genuine feeling, that is the message we want to send. And that… is Broken Door”
Who I'd like to meet:
Broken Door jobbar just nu för fullt med att spela in nytt material till sitt debutalbum som kommer höst2011/vår2012.
Starka melodier. Stark röst. Musikalisk äkthet.
Det är grunden som duon Broken Door bygger sin moderna mix av pop-, rock och soulmusik utifrån.
Med sin musikaliska blandning vill Pier Schmid och Tobias Östlund hitta nya musikaliska uppslag.
"Det här är musik som ska spelas och upplevas live", konstaterar Tobias.
Efter två succésinglar "Angel" och "In the shadow" släppte den svenska duon sin tredje singel, "Hey you". Låten är skriven av Broken Door medlemmen Pier Schmid som genom sina starka texter når ut med budskapet att "ta ingenting för givet". Låten handlar just om att inte ta de delar i livet du älskar för givet utan att man måste vara beredd att kämpa för det. En text som många kan känna igen sig i. "Man ska vara rädd om det man älskar och kämpa för det man tror på" säger Pier Schmid.
"Hey you" är producerad av de framgångsrika producenterna på Bell Studio som tidigare jobbat med artister som bl.a. Backstreet Boys och Westlife.
Under succéåret 2010 hann Broken Door turnera Sverige runt och mötte en publik på 250 000 besökare under sommaren. Båda deras tidigare singlar har haft topplisteplaceringar och gått varmt på radio. "Angel" blev en riktig sommarhit och låg på 3:e plats på Music Control. "In the shadow" släpptes efter den hektiska sommaren och låg topp 20 på Music Control. Nu har intresset även nått utlandet och trycket är stort efter nya låtar.
