As a troubadour I sing and speak from the heart. Sad, fruitful, redeeming or happy stories, with hope and Good news. Fairytales that seem too good to be true, but that ARE true. Selfpenned folksongs and pop-, folk- or gospelsongs from others, with fresh news from heaven. The journey as a troubadour began in the L’abricommunity in Eck en Wiel, but I try to make my home now almost everywhere. Solo, or with the band. I perform for instance in living rooms, churches, on the street, in prison, in the park, cafes, nursery homes and communities. In may 2013 the first album came out, ‘The Desert, The Dew & The Dawn’ on Go West Records. Produced by Rob Vermeulen and recorded in Studio West Hoogland. On the album you will find English rhythmic and fragile folksongs about fruitful land, joy, redemption and a girl with coloured pencils in her hair. The album was nominated for a Zilveren Duif Award, the Dutch version of the Dove Awards.
