With Splinter I recorded the beautiful album 'Dreamers', under the guidance of top producer and bass player Jonas Reingold in the Swedish Malmö. The album was well received in both the national and international press. It led to many shows in the Dutch and German clubcircuit.
In 2008 I was part of the bluesrockband Wide Open. With Wide Open we attended the popular Bospop Festival in Weert with this band along side with acts as ZZ Top, Santana and Europe.
Later I started the more commercially oriented project FUSE. With this band we climbed the stage as the support of BON JOVI, Kane and Di-rect, during the Royal Beach Concert on the beach of Scheveningen. This crowd of nearly 45.000 on a sunny day is one of my musical highlights. Following this mega-show, FUSE from here on played clubs-gigs. FUSE was common guest to popular Dutch radio stations such as 3FM. Fuse released their self-titled album at Spotify and Itunes.
One of the last projects was ABBA Fever, thé ABBA Tribute band of Europe! This band was voted best tribute band of ther Netherlands 2017/2018!
In December 2019, the first Dutch single was released by NÉESIE entitled 'Wattan jonge'. Shortly thereafter in March 2020, the second single, called 'Rasoptimist' was released. NÉESIE is a 'fictional character that arises from a vision of our society. With critical and sometimes humorous lyrics, a message is transferred to make people think.
In addition, I play as stand in with several bands and I'm regularly invited as a session bass player.
