“I strive to evoke a sense of both wonder and melancholy through my own compositions and improvisations, providing the listener a story-telling journey through the unknown!”
Amsterdam, May 2018
I'm very honored and flattered to have won the Art of Musical Expression Award (the public voting prize) on May 27 in the Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam!! Thanks to all the people who voted and came out to support the project!
In the meantime, the mixing of my upcoming album "Opus #1" with Chris Weeda is almost finished, and I'm very happy about the result! I can't wait to share it with all of you!
