He has been performing from a young age, and honed his song-writing skills while studying at Birmingham Ormiston Academy, Birmingham’s answer to London’s ‘Brit School’.
He has recently released an EP of original songs titled No Going Back, highlighting his vocal style which ranges from the beautifully soulful falsetto of ‘Lessons To Be Learned’, to a no holds barred rock vocal on the title track. He loves performing live, and is a regular on the Birmingham music scene, having appeared at The O2 Institute, Sunflower Lounge, The Victoria, The Rainbow, The Flapper and the Actress & Bishop.
Sturman will be performing songs from his EP, together with new material that he is in the process of recording, including his first single ‘Give Me Time,’ due to be released later in the year.
