MUSIC

Even though I’m a country songwriter at heart, I love me some modern Pop influences. My 2019 single ‘Name Of Love’ made me a winner with honorable mention in the International songwriting competition, judged by industry experts and artists such as Coldplay, Dua Lipa and Tom Waits, and got me a tour in the UK & Nashville in 2019.

Music has brought me to many beautiful stages in the Netherlands such as Paradiso, De Vorstin, Patronaat, Sugarfactory and to national radioshows such as 3FM and Radio1. After releasing my first self-produced EP ‘Star-Crossed Lovers’ in 2017, I played the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee.My Nashville-adventures were documented in vlogs for renowned Dutch magazine Viva. On my first trip to Music City, I also realised my true passion lies in songwriting – not performing. I attended the Judy Stakee Songwriting Retreat and took what I learned back to my hometown of Amsterdam; focussing on co-writing and trying out new genres.

You can find a full list of songs I’ve (co-)written here.

single

To me, anger & sadness are often two sides of the same coin. I wanted to show both sides by also releasing this version of ‘3AM’. The anger and strength is in the original version, the sadness is audible in the ‘Heartbreak Version’, with a beautiful string arrangement to complement that.

Name of Love’ follow-up single ‘3AM‘ is a heartfelt, empowering song which tells the story of saying goodbye to a toxic person in one’s life. It’s been in our repertoire for quite some time and it’s always been a personal & a crowd favourite. ‘3AM‘ was added to some lovely playlists and blogs and garnered 20.000 streams in no time!

Upbeat country/pop single ‘Name of Love’ was a winner in the International Songwriting Competition 2019 and received rave reviews world wide, going as far as calling me ‘the Netherlands’ answer to Carrie Underwood‘ (Talk About Pop Music). Music blog Ear To The Ground complimented the ‘rocking chorus’ and Dutch magazine &C said the song will definitely end up in your playlist. And I think it should!
