融合（fusion）风格的音乐总是给他带来无限灵感，于是在2012年，他与同样年轻的伙伴们组建了自己的第一支融合风格的乐队：Mathias Heise Quadrillion。成员包括：吉他手Mads Christiansen，贝斯手David Vang，鼓手Aksel Stadel Borum，还有负责口琴和键盘的Mathias自己。乐队成立时，成员的平均年龄只有23岁。
知名爵士网站All About Jazz的乐评人Ian Patterson曾这样评价他们2016年在马来西亚槟岛爵士音乐节的演出现场：“Mathias Heise的音乐风格使他区别于其它的口琴演奏者。Heise和他的乐队用充满感觉的旋律与和弦、轻松的节奏与律动，构筑出一种有自己特色的融合爵士，而他悠扬的口琴独奏从一开始就让他们更胜一筹了。每一位成员都在方方面面展现出过人的实力，而乐队整体强悍的作曲能力和默契程度则最令人惊叹。Mathias Heise Quadrillion的精彩演出，充分证明了融合爵士既可以平易近人，又可以充满野心。我相信这支乐队可以走得很远。”
Mathias Heise is one of very few jazz harmonica players in Denmark. He was only 8 years old when he first picked up the harmonica his parents had bought for him. He became fascinated by the instrument, which has followed him through thick and thin ever since, and he literally never goes anywhere without it.
Inspired by the fusion genre, in 2012, he founded his fusion band Mathias Heise Quadrillion with equally talented peers aged only 23 in average then: Mads Christiansen on electric guitar, David Vang on bass guitar, Aksel Stadel Borum on drums, and Mathias himself on chromatic harmonica and keyboards.
As the band is formed, a brand new genre called FuRoJazz (FU = Future, Funk, and Fusion. RO = Rock) is also born. They have managed to create a truly unique, contemporary sound combining the chromatic harmonica and new, updated jazz fusion. Jazz harmonies and improvisation mixed with rock and funk music’s hard-hitting, primal beats are sophisticatedly fused into a cheerful, euphoric and very personal expression.
Ian Patterson, All About Jazz, reviewed Mathias Heise Quadrillion’s live performance at Penang Island Jazz Festival (2016), “What sets Mathias Heise apart from most harmonica players is his style of music. Heise, along with his band, plied a form of jazz-fusion, one defined by its melodic and harmonic sensibility and its accessible grooves. Heise’s ﬂowing solo set the bar high from the outset, and whilst the set was peppered with virtuosos displays from all, the strong compositions and the group cohesion was most striking. Mathias Heise Quadrillion’s fine performance demonstrated that jazz-fusion can be accessible and ambitious at the same time. A band seemingly going places.”
Mathias Heise is a multi-awarded fast-rising star.
At the age of 20, Mathias Heise was crowned 2013 Chromatic Harmonica World Champion. In 2015, he was awarded “New Jazz Star of The Year” in Denmark, and the band was nominated “Best New Jazz Act” at “Danish Music Awards”. In 2016, Mathias Heise received The Danish Crown Prince Couple’s Stardust Award – an annual award that is given to honor and highlight young Danish artists about to make an international breakthrough. Lately, in March 2017, he was awarded with the Ben Webster Prize, as the youngest ever.
