Today my new single Love is in your touch has been released! The song is about a femme fatale. It starts mysteriously, with a dark voice yearning for love. But the song changes its mood, as if the Sisters Of Mercy meet Tears For Fears. For the adventurous listener! Taken from the album Till the Oceans Flood.

Work on my second album is in full progress! I have been recording about seven songs at the IJland and Americain studios, with Remko Schouten recording and mixing. Several guest musicians helped me by singing and playing saxophone. On December 14 I will play live in Cinetol, as a nice break to the secluded, concentrated and intensive studio days. See you!

I started working on my second album! I am selecting songs and writing new ones. You can hear some new songs during my concerts  in The Hague and a special performance in Berlin, where artists and audience will both get wireless headphones…then you can really listen.

Winter is introspection time! To write a song is one of the greatest experiences for me. I am doing that in my tiny home studio and quietly thinking about my second album. But not to rush it! To perform live also brings out energies in me. So there will be some new concerts in the coming months, in introspective, beautiful, dimly-lit places. See you there.

It was a wonderful summer, the Beach Boys would have loved it and the same goes for me! Playing outdoor as well as in a living room concept were interesting moments for me. The coming fall I will concentrate on the indoor experience. Writing songs, arranging, learning the piano. Concerts will be quite limited but you can still book me. Catch you later!

After pleasant concerts in Cologne/Germany, the island of Aruba and also in the Netherlands, I am preparing for summer. I will play at the  food festival in Wageningen and the little church in Ruigoord. Sometimes I bring my mandolin or Indian banjo. The piano yet stays at home, because I have only just received my first lessons. Enjoy the warmth of the sun and the outside life!

The last months I performed all through the Netherlands and even did a gig abroad! From the ‘werfkelders’ in Utrecht I went on to play Amstelveen, Den Bosch and Zevenaar, played in the local book shop in Arnhem and surprised the people in Bosnia-Hercegovina! Thanks to all who attended a gig. Besides most of the songs from my album, I am also including new songs in my live set: like the reggae song “Curley locks” and the classic “Wake up empty”. I will continue touring! New concert dates will be announced here soon, or sign up for the newsletter.

Thanks to all who came to the album releaseparty! Now I am planning my tour. I will play shows in September in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Amstelveen and more places to come. On July 16 there will be a live performance on the radio. See the “concerts” section for details!
