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 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.
As of late 2019 I’m recording a bi-weekly podcast called The Guitar Express Podcast. In it I talk with Dutch guitar players about their work, their love for guitars, the music that they play and the artists they play it with. Podcasts are a great medium to dive deep into the subject of conversation. Sorry - for the time being it’ll be in Dutch only!
2020 is the year of my online guitar course: The Guitar Express. This online course gives players all the tools they need to be able to play to every song they encounter. Solo’s, chords, licks, music theory and what not; all aspects of playing guitar will be discussed and explained.
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.
