Since a few years, Johannes Sigmond has to be one of the best export products of the Netherlands. Forget the clogs and cheese, here's Blaudzun! With albums 'Heavy Flowers' and 'Promises of No Man's Land' he put himself on the (international) map for once and for all. Meanwhile, he released his newest project 'Jupiter', a trilogy of which the second part came out recently. The album is equally organic as frivolous, containing tracks of krautrock, eighties Bowie, Springsteen and intimate indie pop. An album filled with energetic songs, atmospheric 'Blaudzun-arrangements' and to top it all off, his typical warm voice.

Chantal Acda was born in The Netherlands but has a thing for Belgium. Since she came to the surface in 2006 (back then as Sleepingdog) she collaborated with an impressive list of musicians and artists: Nils Frahm, Peter Broderick, Isbells, A Winged Victory For The Sullen ... Namedropping is easy!

After her solo debut in 2013 'Let Your Hands Be My Guide' and the evenly beautiful 'The Sparkle In Our Flaws' in 2015, there’s now 'Bounce Back', her ode to connection, contact and consciousness, far away from all the fake news and the compulsion for perfection in this world. Lovely, intimate songs with a raw and melancholic side to them. Luckily, Chantal's voice heals all wounds.
