"Moment to Self"


Thanks to all my girlfriends who make the shows so much fun!! Chelsea, Emily, Ayjay, Maria and Sara, you guys are awesome!
And two new ladies who where at the show supporting, Jennifer and Carrie. Lovely to meet you. :)

Musical Men and Chelsea

Marty Motola and Todd Cecil, two great music men big influences in my music so far.
Marty has produced and co-produced a lot of tracks. Todd and I have been on the road together, played tons of Nashville gigs, where he assists me on the mandolin.
Chelsea Payne has been accompanying me on the piano a lot in my latest live shows. [And recently some percussion and back-up vocals]

Live Music Audiences

The sweet Nele came all the way from Belgium with her sister to be at the show in Eindhoven. What a pleasure. It's such a nice thing to have people show up specifically to see/hear me play. It's quite an honour. I've played too many empty rooms [still happens..;)] that you really learn to appreciate an audience.
Sometimes a small audience is good, better than a large one.. it all depends on the atmosphere, the energy. I guess you could play a song to 3 people [scary.. ! ] and have a phenomenal audience or play to 300 [much less scary somehow..] and not feel like you really connect.

Ca va?

Ca va, mon cher?
Tu trouves un peu ta place
Dans ce monde extra-terrestre?
Loin, perdu, je t'ai vu tout nu..

from "Entendu"

[How are you my dear,
Are you finding your place
In this outerwordly world
Far, lost, I've seen you all naked]

Music Art Blogs

I'd love to get in touch with other music and/or art blogs, if anyone has a great suggestion of where to go look, please let me know! I'm new to the blogging world and still searching..

I was thinking about failure and success today after a chat with a friend and remembered a quote by Winston Churchill on the topic, i looked it up and found a few great ones by him:

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another without the loss of enthusiasm"

"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give"

"For myself i am an optimist- it does not seem to be much use being anything else"

tons of good quotes here

Support team!

This from the trip to Amersfoort. Diana, driving, managing, supporting, Marloes with the 'koekkruimels' one of my favourite things to eat back home :)
And the man who's name we forgot but who guided us so kindly to the freeway, in the middle of the night on our way to Hilversum.

Optimaal FM

At Radio Optimaal FM with Willem Van Der Veur. Dank je , Willem! 3 songs and a little interview, this show felt particularly relaxed to me, i had a great time playing! And the scenery in this part of Holland is amazing. Green, lush, mellow.. just 10 km from the German border. I love that about Europe, 1.5 hour drive and you're in another country, language, culture, food, etc.. very cool.

Nashville show

I'm back in Nashville. Quite happy to be, even though it's always sort of sad to leave Holland...
But, a new show is coming up, songs to be written, lots to prepare for the new album, the key is staying active. [and taking sweet time to enjoy doing absolutely nothing ;) ] I've been waiting to go see this movie 'La Mome' about Edith Piaf's life. [ the sparrow, i think it's called in English] and it finally came out in Nashville!

A new Album

Saturday night i played the last show of the Dutch solo tour in Eindhoven. That same afternoon i was a guest at Tros Muziek Cafe which was a great experience, everybody there was so sweet! And thanks to all who came out to support, it's great to play a live radio show as it were a gig, with an audience and the ambience of a club.

Now, some wonderful news: I'm going to record a new album!! This is going to happen in Holland with AGMusic in Alkmaar. Very exciting news, more details will follow, but as it looks now, a cd should be out early fall [or late, late summer... ]

Thank you, Dank jullie wel, merci to everyone who's come out to a show, played me on the radio, helped arrange things, bought a cd, encouraged in any way, it was an amazing little trip! :)
