Musical background:

In my younger years I started playing the electric guitar. I practiced some songs of my favorite grunge bands (e.g. Hole), but not only on guitar, I also sang along with it. I started my own band “Kortom” and my interest for singing started to grow. Especially when there was ”gothic metal’ .

In front of the computer I sang together with Sharon the “Enter” album by Within Temptation, and later a lot of more great bands like “After Forever”, “the Gathering” & “Tristania”.

Favourite bands:
After Forever, Delain, Epica, the Gathering
Above Symmetry, Anathema, Circus Maximus, Riverside

Favourite albums:

  • Above Symmetry – Ripples
  • After Forever – After Forever
  • Circus Maximus – Isolate
  • Elisabeth – Dutch version of the Musical
  • Riverside – Second Life Syndrome
