So what’s been going on lately? Let’s give you a quick update. In February, I collected every single dime I have been saving since last year and I got myself my beloved new guitar, named Martin. I’ve learnt to play banjo, too.
I started rehearsing with Laurens, Tim, Stan and Rikke from the band Pyrolysis, and yesterday, we played our first show together in Nieuwaal. I can’t even begin to say how amazing it is to play and perform with these guys, they are such good musicians - and really great people, too! I hope there’s a lot more of these gigs to come.
That hasn’t been all, though: I’ve been confirmed to play at MadNes festival on Ameland (sold out in three days!) in July and I’ve been planning a show abroad later this year.
On April 23, I’ll be playing at the finals of my school’s talent competition, and the winner of this contest will be playing at Appelpop! More about this later, so stay tuned.
Last but definitely not least, I will be playing live at national radio station 3FM next Thursday night! Really, really thrilled about this, bring on the caffeïne! I’ll keep you posted!
I’m so happy to be living the dream, and it would not have been possible without the help from my friends, family, fans and everyone who gave and gives me chances along the way. Thank you very much!
