About Sting
Whether as frontman of The Police or in the long solo career that's followed, singer/songwriter/bassist Sting is one of the more quietly influential artists of the late ’70s and beyond, adding measures of sophistication and eclecticism that helped broaden the vocabulary of pop-rock.
Raised near the shipyards in working-class Northumberland, England, the artist born Gordon Sumner started his career as a schoolteacher, playing bass in jazz bands by night before cofounding The Police in 1977. (His nickname came from a black-and-yellow-striped sweater he used to wear to gigs.) Though not a punk band per se, The Police—like the Pretenders and Elvis Costello—brought punk energy into the pop realm as the ’70s ticked over into the ’80s, creating a nimble hybrid of jazz, reggae, and rock, whose prime examples (“Roxanne,” “Message in a Bottle,” “Don’t Stand So Close to Me,” “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da”) helped define what we know as New Wave.
Sting’s solo career, which he launched in the mid-’80s, proved even more varied, spanning everything from jazz-pop fusion (The Dream of the Blue Turtles) to Elizabethan lute music (Songs from the Labyrinth) to collaborations with Mary J. Blige and sitar player Anoushka Shankar (Sacred Love), and continuing at a regular clip well into the 2010s. And while the sound tended to be mellow, the music—like that of his friend Peter Gabriel—has always had a quiet intensity to it, steering elements of spirituality, world music, and fusion gently toward the mainstream.
A lifelong activist, he has often contributed to musical-humanitarian efforts, including 1985’s Live Aid, and later cofounded The Rainforest Foundation to help preserve the rainforest and homes of indigenous peoples of Brazil.
About The Police
The Police covered an impressive amount of sonic ground during their initial seven-year run as a band. In the process, the trio—former teacher Gordon “Sting” Sumner, onetime Curved Air drummer Stewart Copeland, and veteran guitarist Andy Summers—proved that commercial rock music could be both ambitious and accessible. After forming in London, The Police debuted in 1978 with Outlandos d’Amour, a punk- and reggae-influenced LP with a melodic pop core that yielded the New Wave classic “Roxanne.” The band used that album and its signifiers—Sting’s keening yelp and live-wire basslines, Copeland’s intricate backbeats, and Summers’ slashing riffs—as a jumping-off point for experimentation; on subsequent LPs, the group explored laidback dub (“Walking On the Moon”), lively jazz-rock (“Driven to Tears”), and moody, grayscale synth-rock (“Invisible Sun”). These panoramic creative visions coalesced on 1983’s multiplatinum smash Synchronicity, a sophisticated rock album with tasteful synth flourishes and the obsession-focused No. 1 hit “Every Breath You Take.” (That song would be sampled by Puff Daddy on his 1997 hit with Faith Evans and 112, “I’ll Be Missing You,” giving The Police hip-hop cred.) After going on a break in 1984, The Police resurfaced in 1986 for several Amnesty International benefit concerts and then reunited for a proper large-scale reunion tour in 2007 and 2008 before splitting up once again. The band’s genre-blending rock approach lives on today via bands such as Vampire Weekend—and Sting himself still switches up Police songs live during his solo gigs.
