Besides being a freelance musician I am playing/leading a couple of fixed bands that can be booked:
This is a brand new quartet of mine, for which I’ve spent the last months writing new music. The concept is as follows: LOUW is my quartet, me plus drums, keys and bass. Every concert we feature a different special guest. An individual whom I admire for his/her playing or singing. This way every concert is unique. We play own compositions, and try to include music of the guest soloist as well.
I just started writing, not knowing what general style my music would turn out to be. As it turns out it’s best to be described as a warm and energetic mix of Jazz and Hip-Hop! My work is mainly inspired by Roy Hargrove, Robert Glasper, Anton Goudsmit and Louis Cole.
THE SUNNY SESSIONS
Together with Ike van Bergen on keys, we play a long repertoire of jazzstandards, as well as some famous popsongs that we put in a new jacket. Wether you are looking for cozy and warm background entertainment or something more vibrant. We are experienced and able to adapt to every kind of setting.
Inspired by Gallowstreet, Lucky Chops and Anomaly, Kris Kraanen and I started a new brassband, presenting you some of the most talented young brass-musicians from Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Since our big debut in Paradiso (2018) we have blown away the audiences at major venues/festivals like Eurosonic Noorderslag, Amsterdam Dance Event, North Sea Jazz, Oerol and AFAS Live! We are about to launch our new EP!
