Exploring the latest music industry trends, meeting new and existing contacts from all over the world and of course enjoying lots of good music. Looking forward to it!!!
One year ago today, debut EP ‘Electric Carpet Ride’ was released. You can still add that five-headed earworm to your Spotify playlist: http://open.spotify.com/album/0uFHmRyomAs0ZyseulDp6m
It has been a marvelous music year. Releasing the EP, getting great reviews, lots of new fans, band contests and the UK Songwriting Festival are a couple of highlights that will be cherished.
Since 2012 I’ve had the privilege of being accompanied by a band. But last week I have decided to continue on my own for now. Running a band and everything that comes with that is hard to combine with a full time job. Because of that, I can’t put as much time as I’d like into the thing I love most about music: writing songs. I’ve always considered myself as a songwriter in the first place and I’d like to focus more on the writing beautiful songs, both for other artists and myself. I will continue to play solo gigs and when the time is ready I will release new material on my own.
Thanks a lot to everyone for all your lovely support so far, you know who you are!!! Reinier, Daan, Kenneth, Martijn, Nico and Dávid: thanks a million for your (musical) comradeship and the adventures we shared together!
To be continued…
We’ve been selected for the ‘Grote Prijs van Rotterdam’ band competition!
On October 13th, we get to impress a jury in a non-public gig/event. Hopefully we will survive and make it to the finals on November 17th. Stay tuned!
This Sunday we’ll be recording a video clip in Amsterdam for an acoustic version of this song.
The finished video will appear online for a jury’s verdict (50%) and Facebook voting (50%). We’ll keep you posted!
ROTTERDAM, THANX AND SEE YA NEXT TIME!!!!!!!
