Who is Stromer Hills?
Canadian born and raised rapper/singer-songwriter Stromer Hills is a true embodiment of authenticity. His unafraid and tell-it-like-it-is songwriting has cultivated a dedicated & cult-like audience that follow his every move and it is expanding exponentially. Upon graduating from Bishop Carroll Highschool in Calgary, Alberta, Stromer has been releasing a string of captivating new singles, raking in almost half a million plays on SoundCloud in his first year.
Stromer is now showcasing his ability to deeply connect with new audiences and convert passers-by into raving fans by scoring multiple #1s and top 10s on Soundclouds new and hot and global charts. His single “BETTER OFF” hit #1 across all countries on August 25th, 2021 and stayed there for 3 whole weeks, proving that Stromer has the “staying power” that many artists long for. His next single “LOVERS” hit #10 in the USA on November 9th 2021 earning him his second consecutive top 10 in the span of only two months. As a testament to Stromers versatility, his most recent charting is “LEMONZ FREESTYLE” which dominated the R&B global charts at #2, right behind Doja Cat on February 24th 2022.
Raised in Calgary, Zachary Skarzynski and his father would listen to music in the car often playing the game “name that tune”. The variety consisted of mostly classic rock and heavy rock acts like Creedence Clearwater Revival, Travelling Wilburys, Ozzy Osbourne and AC/DC which left him with a taste for “all things classic” and a longing to explore a multitude of genres moving forward. While Zach’s mother and father always appreciated good music, he did not have particularly musically inclined parents or family making him quite the unique outlier. Playing in bands as a drummer, guitarist and even bassist eventually led him to fill in as an MC one day as his band's vocalist couldn't perform. This was when he discovered his passion for using his voice as an instrument. Years later he began creating his own music from scratch, learning to produce, and relocated from Northern Alberta to the West Coast, where he currently resides in Hollywood to continue maximising his opportunities for success and building his brand.
The latest release “Skar Boy” is some of Stormers work from when he was playing in bands ranging from years 2016-2018. He says he wanted to release it because it is very near and dear to his heart and wants to let fans have a closer glimpse at what built the foundation for the Stromer Hills we know today. While “SINKING” explores the duality in longing for closure but also not wanting to revisit old trauma, “CALL ME” is perfect for late night drives and making it all a little easier to forget. His previous single “CONTROL” released in March of 2022 features experimental pop production with intoxicating vocals featuring a conversation between him and God. A sort of dialogue between the two characters flourishes as the odd array of layered instrumentals flowers beneath it all. His next release will be debuting in June.
