NIENKE LOHUIS


Nienke Lohuis is best known for her own band Inlakech. I’ve had the pleasure to study music with her together. I’ve seen her develop her talent for singing and writing music up to the point were she is undeniably one of the best performers I know. If you ever get the chance to see her and her band play live, you’re in for a treat. She is the paradoxal combination of fragility and power wrapped into one person and thus a force to be reckoned with. That’s why i’m so very honoured she was willing to write a song with me for this project. Be sure to check out her band’s website www.inlakechmusic.com

MARLON PENN


Marlon is a difficult artist to pin down for his body of work is enormous and ranges through every style imaginable. I’ve seen him perform his own music in various settings. I’ve seen him funk his brains out with Hotter than Denzel. I’ve seen him as a side man to many well know Dutch artist like Emil Landman or Florian Wolff. I’ve seen him successfully step in the footsteps of Donald Fagen with steely Penn: a homage to Steely Dan. Moreover i’ve seen him featured in so many songs and video’s online that I have lost count. He is true musician of a very rare breed. He seems to breath, eat and sleep with the muze we all so desperately chase. He is currently causing trouble in Berlin. I’m very thankful for having been able to collaborate with Marlon. You can check out his album independence on the following link: https://marlonpenn.bandcamp.com With Fortheloveofbass I tried to do justice to his song: Forsake Me.

NINA JUNE


Nina June is a Dutch artist whom I truly admire. She creates her work without comprise and absolute focus on the message she wants to convey. Moreover she is willing to go the extra mile for her work. For inspiration for her last tour she’s lived in a silent monastery for a week, and as I’m writing this, she is walking the famous pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. That is sheer commitment! She has an impeccable eye for every single detail in a song and performance. That is why I’m truly so proud to have been able to create this live performance with her.
