SCHWARZ is Roland Meyer de Voltaire - a creative multi-talent and cosmopolite. Born to German-Bolivian parents, he grew up in Bonn, Dublin, Moscow and Beijing.
The first single Home which escalated from fragile acoustic pop to an energetic EDM-drop was a worldwide success. Finding a home in relationships rather than in places and nations: this notion is as touching as Meyer de Voltaire’s unique voice. With 1,000,000 streams of his debut single ‚Home‘ on Spotify, In Your Eyes the latest single released from the eponymous debut EP continues on the same path. Roland explains: “With In Your Eyes I want to motivate people to look into someone’s eyes and see what connects, not what distinguishes us.”The unique video was shot in North Korea, the world’s most isolated society. It was created in collaboration with the Russian director Vitaly Manski. “I found his film 'Under The Sun' incredibly impressive... it's a peek behind the world’s last iron curtain, straight into the people’s living rooms; into their eyes and souls. The images immediately connected with my song’s message. That's why I wanted to collaborate with him on this video.”
The single In Your Eyes is out now. The eponymous EP is released in January 2018. It includes, amongst others, a remix by Los Angeles based German wunderkind Robot Koch.
