Shtevil was forged in early 2015. The objective was to write well crafted songs and the type of music that is scarce today. Music that reminded people of hard blues and soul driven rock that was common in the 70’s without being a retro act and a pop sensibility. It needed to have modern production and sound, yet still capture the fire and soul of those old recordings.
Shtevil released 3 singles leading up to his debut album “STUNG. "On Fire" went to number 1 in the Virgin Radio top 20 and the track was used by TV-programs in multiple European countries. The other singles also reached Top 20 spots on “Virgin Radio & Radio Freccia”, also adding airplay in Switzerland and Germany.
October 2020 saw the release of follow up EP “Thank You”, featuring the critically acclaimed single “Who I Am” and sizeable European and UK airplay.
The success of these singles led to a number of European shows as a blistering power-trio reminiscent of those raw 70’s rock acts.
SHTEVIL puts on a show designed to stir emotions through their grounded and no-frills musical delivery. Their rock is unique, very rich in blues and soulful in nature.
