It was incredible to write a song for the new Interpolis ‘Automodus’ TV campaign (NL). And I’m glad to tell you that I just released that song as a single!
Listen and stream it here !
Check out the Interpolis commercial with my song:
My new song ‘Underwater’ is the second song I wrote on the remote island Fleinvaer in Norway.
It’s about being afraid of making life decisions, hiding the things you need most and just pretending there’s no problem.
The island was my ‘Underwater’, a world where I’m alone with my thoughts and don’t have to think about these decisions. Or, it’s about quarter-life crisis 😏

In November 2019 I trained self-isolation without even knowing it! 😉 I went to the remote Island of Fleinvaer near Bodø in the north of Norway for a couple of days. I’ve been a Norway lover for years now and this place, where you can only come by boat, inspired me so much! It was light outside just for a couple of hours and the sun didn’t rise above the mountain there, but that gave the sky amazing colors. I came there to write and writing was what I did. I wrote three songs which I will release as my new EP! The first one is Old Boat!
For the people who think, wow wtf, I want to go there! It’s called The Arctic Hideaway, a self-sufficient residency. An incredible place to stay and get inspired.
Old Boat is about perspective. That things can be different if you just look at it differently.

We made a live recording of We Are Just Strangers, at the Wedgeview studios!

Cool shows coming up!
During some shows (Hengelo & Deventer) I’ll be giving a so called ‘Third-Screen’ concert, while you’ll be given a QR code that leeds to the music short film ‘Andras’ and you can watch that award winning film while I play live music.
And I’ll give you a secret link to a not released live video as a present!
