I’m very excited to announce the launch of the Amsterdam Art Orchestra. This big band with a majority of female musicians premiered at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam last September. It features some of my favourite artists: Tineke Postma, Jasper Blom, Suzan Veneman, Shannon Barnett, Mareike Wiening and others!
I also released my new album Stranded on September 22, 2023. Check out the video below for a preview. Or click on the button to listen to all the tracks.
