PROJECT SPEAK NOW
‘Little Butterfly’ is my new song (lyrics and music), inspired by the story of Marianne Kimmel about sexual child abuse. I sang this short fragment during the broadcast of the Dutch TV-program ‘Recht uit het hart’ on July 5 where Marianne shares her story. (at 29:50min)
The intriguing story of Marianne inspired me to give a positive voice to my own experience with sexual child abuse as well. We wanted a song that reflects pain, fear and hope. Writing the song felt like a great healing and growing proces for me of which I am very greatfull.
I am very proud to be one of the ambassador of foundation ´Project Speak Now´, founded by Marianne and will support all the goals to inform schools and people about this subject. Check:www.projectspeaknow.nl and www.mariannekimmel.nl
NEW ALBUM “Rhythm of life”
The official release of this song will be combined with the publishing of the upcoming book of Marianne Kimmel in spring 2014. In the meantime I am currently working on my new album “Rhythm of life” in which I blend serveral musical influences and create my own new sound. I look forward to work with different musicians and go on tour next year. Please get in touch if you are inspired as well!
This is my first solo production after my CD release FLOW with my composing partner Ties van der Linden. We released our album on 20-11-2011. The 11 songs of FLOW are inspired by love and the belief in life. My belief is that when we live through love, when we believe in ourselves, we receive a positive vibe that makes us happy and be in a flow.
Are you curious? You can join me on Facebook to follow my upcoming events and activities!
PS: On the album FLOW you hear my voice and lyrics. Feel free to check www.fonofactory.com of Ties van der Linden who did the composing, editing, recording and mastering in his FonoFactoryStudio (NL). Flow has been released by the Rhodês Records label.
