This year a new IDENTIKIT album will see the light of day. New sounds, new instruments and a new band member. I’m going to keep you involved throughout the entire process of writing this new music by making a podcast about it. A peek behind the scenes of writing music, creating musical projects and making albums. Listen to the first episode here!
This year I will start mentoring musicians for Cultuur+Ondernemen. I’m really looking forward to help fellow musicians and artists move their musical careers forward and to guide them in their entrepreneurial and artistic endeavors. If you’re interested or know someone who might be interested, please get in touch with me or with the people at Cultuur+Ondernemen. Let’s do this!
Another fresh year of music and creating is ahead of us. 2017 ended with a nice run of shows with my Americana Trio and Norwegian trumpet player Hayden Powell. Also I was featured on the Dutch national television show Vrije Geluiden, where I did an interview and played two songs. 2018 started great with a very nice mention on the New York based music blog Bird Is The Worm. And there’s lots of great stuff coming up this year: new acoustic solo music as a follow-up to last year’s We Never Left Town, new music by IDENTIKIT and I’ve started as a coach for Cultuur+Ondernemen. More about all of the above soon. So have a great new year and thanks for supporting!
Dutch tv broadcasting network VPRO invited me to play a few songs on the rooftop of their building. I played ‘Heartland’ from ‘We Never Left Town’ and a new song called ‘Taking Down Our Flags’. The video was shot and directed beautifully. Enjoy!
