Staggerman nasce nel 2009 come progetto solista di Matteo Crema (The Union Freego, Van Cleef Continental, My Uncle The Dog, Bogartz), frutto dell’esigenza di dare spazio alla propria musica attraverso un songwriting che preferisce la semplicità e la schiettezza alla spasmodica ricerca di nuove forme musicali.
Nasce così il primo album Tiny Tiny Tiny (2009), che ottiene incoraggianti recensioni e riconoscimenti, passaggi in diverse radio (tra cui Rai Radio1) e tv (Sour Times viene utilizzato per un trailer Mediaset). Nel è uscito Don’t Be Afraid And Trust Me, secondo album di Staggerman.
