Matthias Reim was born on November 26 in Korbach, Hesse. However, he grew up with his three brothers in Homberg (Efze), where his father was the principal of the grammar school. Already in his childhood he sang with passion. He was given his first guitar for his confirmation. This was such a formative experience for young Matthias that he still remembers it today and knows for sure that his first guitar was a Hagstrøm II. He started playing and singing in bands while he was still at school.
After graduating from high school, Matthias Reim began studying to become a teacher (English and German) at the Georg-August University in Göttingen. However, he preferred to deal with music and neglected his studies, which he consequently did not complete. Among other things, he played in various bands from Kassel and Bad Wildungen. He also wrote songs for other artists such as Bernhard Brink and Jürgen Drews. He had no commercial success with his own albums, which he recorded with “Fair Fax” and “Fallen Dice”.
After it had not looked like a brilliant career for Matthias Reim for a long time, the absolute breakthrough came in 1990 with the song “Verdammt, ich lieb’ Dich”. After an appearance in the “German Schlager Parade” the song became known to a broad public. The song was number one in the German charts for a total of 16 weeks. The German artist also reached the top of the hit parades in other countries with this song. The single sold around 2.5 million worldwide. The album “Reim”, which contains the song, also reached number 1 in the album charts in Germany. In the period that followed, Matthias Reim was unable to build on the success of “Damn, I love you” and went through private and economic crises that even led to insolvency. Great success only returned in 2013, when he released the album “Unendlich”, with which he landed at the top of the album charts in Germany again.
“I’ve never been greedy for money.” “I write catchy tunes without being banal.” “I tell stories that people want to hear.” “I’m a musician, I don’t want anything to do with money things.” “Thanks to my family, I didn’t have to do without anything when I had nothing more myself.” “The bankruptcy didn’t break me, it inspired me.” “I work a lot and take very little vacation.” “Not having any money, being under pressure, that scratches your luck. Conversely, I like to make others happy with my money.”
