Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner CBE better known by his stage name Sting, is an English musician, singer-songwriter known as the lead singer of The Police.

Sting was born in Wallsend, North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England. In 1977 Gordon moved from Newcastle to London and met Stewart Copeland and Henry Padovani to form a new wave band called The Police. They enjoyed success from the late 70’s to early 80’s, releasing five albums, four of which topped the charts in the UK and one that topped the charts in the US also. They enjoyed huge success with their punk inspired sounds which developed into a minimalist reggae tinged rock/pop and had a plethora of hit singles including ‘Message In A Bottle’ ‘Don’t Stand So Close To Me’ ‘Every Breath You Take’ and ‘Walking On The Moon’.

The band unofficially parted after their final release ‘Synchronicity’ to focus on their solo careers. Sting’s first solo gig was at Amnesty International’s The Secret Policeman’s Other Ball where he performed solo versions of tracks such as ‘Roxanne’ and ‘Message In A Bottle’. In 1985, Sting finally released his debut record which featured a heavier lean towards jazz including the musicians Kenny Kirkland, Darryl Jones, Omar Hakim and Branford Marsalis. Once again, he enjoyed a number of hit singles from the record and within a year it had been awarded triple platinum. To add to the accolades Sting also received four Grammy nominations for ‘The Dream Of Blue Turtles’.

Sting was part of the iconic Band Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ charity single which raised money for famine victims in Ethiopia and took part in the live aid concert the following year, playing a selection of The Police hits. His next album ‘…Nothing Like The Sun’ mirrored the successes of his first, more hit singles, more Grammy Nominations and this time a Brit Award for Best Album. The following four releases all reached the top five of the UK charts and have now been certified as platinum selling. In 2007 he reunited with his Police bandmates as the introductory act for the 2007 Grammy Awards, singing ‘Roxanne’ and subsequently announced a huge worldwide tour which sold out almost instantly.

Sting has had multiple successes both with his band and as a solo artist. He has accumulated a total of sixteen Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards and several Oscar nominations for Best Original Song. He is known for his musical abilities but also his activism, becoming patrons for several charities including Elton John’s AIDS foundation. He has sold over 100 million records to date.


Compositore, cantante, attore, autore, Sting è nato a Newcastle, Inghilterra, e si è trasferito a Londra nel 1977; lì ha formato i Police insieme a Stewart Copeland e Andy Summers. La band ha pubblicato cinque album, ha vinto 6 Grammy, e 2 Brits e nel 2003 è stata inserita nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dal 1989, Sting ha pubblicato 14 album da solista e ha ricevuto altri 10 Grammy, 2 Brits, 1 Golden Globe, 1 Emmy, 3 nomination agli Oscar, il Century Awards di Billboard Magazine, e il MusiCares Person of the Year nel 2004. È inoltre membro del Songwriters Hall of Fame e, nel 2014 ha ricevuto il Kennedy Center Honors. Nel Corso della sua lunga carriera ha venduto quasi 100 milioni di album (tra album pubblicati con i Police e quelli da solista). The Last Ship, il suo ultimo album, è un intenso lavoro ispirato dai suoi ricordi dei cantieri navali di Wallsand, nel Nord Est dell’Inghilterra, dove Sting è nato e cresciuto. Il musical che porta lo stesso nome dell’album, con musiche e testi di Sting, ha fatto il suo debutto a Broadway ad ottobre 2014 ed è stato definito dall’Associated Press come “emozionante con esibizioni potenti, canzoni eccezionali e puro cuore”. Sting ha ricevuto una nomination ai Tony Awards per Best Original Score.

Sting è apparso in oltre 15 film e ha scritto 2 libri, tra cui la sua autobiografia, Broken Music. Il suo supporto alle associazioni che difendono i diritti umani rispecchia la sua arte nella sua estensione universale. Insieme a sua moglie Trudie Styler, nel 1989 ha fondato la Rainforest Fund, per proteggere le foreste pluviali nel mondo e le popolazioni indigene che ci vivono.
