Julian Scherle Captivates You With The Truth Of Heart

The veteran film composer ponders human connection in his latest single.


Julian Scherle bares his soul in his seductive new single Truth Of Heart — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Taking his acclaimed film scoring ability and once again bringing it to the world of the recording artist, Scherle’s latest release is an idyllic blend of incredible synth design, with the acoustic nature of piano and vocals bringing the sounds into a more natural state. The vocal performance from Julian is emotional, introspective and alluring. While the thick texture of instrumentation provides an equally enticing backdrop that has you captivated by the beauty and intensity that you feel from the very beginning to the very end.

“At its core, the song is a love song for someone who is very close to my heart. I was going through some quite difficult personal challenges over the past year, which forced me to open my eyes and rethink what human connection and love really means to me,” Julian shares. “Along the way, I asked myself questions like, ‘How do traumas, anxieties, and societal norms shape the way we connect with other people?’ and, ‘Is this even compatible with human nature? Are we constructing relationships that are impossible to live up to our expectations? Are we setting ourselves up for guaranteed failure?’

“Love means to nurture both one’s own and another person’s spiritual growth. In the presence of dependency, control, anxiety and the wish for dominance, real love can’t exist.”

Hailing from Germany but based in Los Angeles, Scherle is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and recording artist, known for his unique and diverse musical style, often featured under different monikers such as Són. The artist has had an eclectic musical past, from punk bands to studying at a conservatory to a broad history of film composition. His most recent contribution is in the mesmerising score for the technology-laden mystery thriller Missing, directed by Nick Johnson and Will Merrick. Other projects include Luden, Mr. Robot, American Horror Story and American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson.

Julian bridges the gap between nature and technology as an artist, using his incredible composition knowledge and talent to create evocative and cinematic soundscapes with clear sensibilities of mainstream music. “All my music I’ve worked on has been instrumental for the past 20 years, so this is the first time using my most personal instrument — my own voice — since I’d played in a punk band in my teens,” he says.
