It has been a special year. I and many other musicians have been struggling to find a way to cope with cancelled shows and collaborating with other musicians in practice rooms and the studio. Because I usually work in the studio it was not that devastating, but it played a big role all year. Now, as the year is closing down in a way it got worse. My country is now in complete lockdown and will remain locked down until at least two weeks into the new year. The only way I found to celebrate this festive season now is […]
From living a life of material riches to homeless. Is it possible? This is the time of the year to think about those who are not so fortunate. After a visit to one of the features of Lowlands festival this year I got the inspiration for a new clip for Just Follow Me about the homeless. How do you become homeless? Did you start out with a poor start or can you have everything and lose it? It turns out it can happen to anyone of us, but one of the more common ways is through either drug or alcohol […]
A joy to make and a year in the making. The new clip for Memories. The clip will take you back to my old school in a small village near Leiden. About 5 years ago I attended a school reunion. A special one because an old class mate took the effort to get together the whole year of my class. About 48 people from my year.

Once in a while a dream comes true. A long time ago I wrote a dance song. Now it is a new release on all major streaming services. Angel Saint Goddess (feat. Lisa Michelle) in Japanese. The song was inspired by a special night out in Muenster Germany. Out of nowhere, an angel came and guided me to a club named Heaven. At that time I could not find a suitable female voice to really catch the dreamy feel of the song. So I explored something I did try before, a Vocaloid. Most Vocaloids can only sing in Japanese. At […]
Now isn’t that just what the doctor ordered? A brand new love potion from a brand new jazzy star: Kelly.
To my surprise we were actually very welcome to spend a morning filming the the RMO Leiden. The Rijksmuseum voor Oudheden or Dutch National Museum for Antiquities. Iris, in charge of the communication was very kind and managed to give us all freedom to make this clip. It was the first ever request for filming a music video clip, she told us, as the museum is more used to TV and documentary film crews with focus on the actual collection. For me and Evelien an honor to be able to be there before opening hours. To be allowed to remove […]
