My proficiency in different musical genres has gotten me playing with a variety of Dutch artists. Over the years I’ve shared the stage with bands and artists like Pieter Derks, Jeroen Kant, Roel van Velzen, Thomas Acda, Paul de Munnik, Bertolf, Tess et les Moutons, Pieternel, Kiki Schippers, Nona, Kirsten van Teijn, Helge, Vengeance, Davina Michelle, Janne Schra, Grenadeers, Dave von Raven, Maaike Ouboter, Kasper van Kooten and many others.
Besides playing, I love to write and produce. In the spring of 2018 I released an album with both original music and covers, recorded in trio setting. The creation of this record enabled me to channel my love for instrumental music and improvisation. This album perfectly embodies this particular facet of my playing.
I’ve been teaching guitar and drums most of my professional career, and as of 2022 I’ve started working at the Herman Brood Academie. It’s been a dream of mine to work and give guitar lessons at the academy where I laid the foundation of my professional musical life.
For the near future I’ll be focusing on developing and challenging myself artistically: learning new things, playing with new people, collaborations with other musicians and releasing new music.
