I write and sing both in Dutch and English. Lyrically I try to go beyond existing taboo, right into the core of my own thoughts and feelings, with the firm belief that there must be others who'll recognize the mutual experience and feel less alone as a result. It is the only reason for me to keep sharing what I create.
Besides performing solo I am part of the Beyond Music Project and with 21 artists from all over the world we recorded an album (due to be released 23 August 2019) under the guidance of Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein (USA) at Studios La Fabrique in the South of France. I have also had the pleasure to join Iain Matthews and his Matthews Southern Comfort (UK) on tour and sang backing vocals for Shannon Lyon (CAN).
