ABOUT ME

Creative, soft-hearted and receptive singer-songwriter from the Netherlands, with half Belgian roots. Once cut down but now broken free and living from a frame of love. I play a 4-string guitar in special tuning, sometimes offering a dissonant siren but more often the gentle, warm whisper in your ear. I write and sing both in Dutch and English. Lyrically I try to go beyond existing taboo, right into the core of my own thoughts and feelings, with the firm belief that there must be others who'll recognize the mutual experience and feel less alone as a result. It is the only reason for me to keep sharing what I create. Besides performing solo I've had the honor to join Iain Matthews and his band Matthews Southern Comfort (UK) and I sang backing vocals for Shannon Lyon (CAN). When I am not making music I immerse myself in a variety of creative projects. I am self-taught with everything I create, both musically and creatively.

Your Heart Beats With Mine
I felt an instant connection when I began chatting with Elly. I sent her a melody idea and some chorus lyrics. She wrote the verses and added guitar to the track. This song is special because it is encouraging. It tells us that even though we're different, our hearts beat alike. When we accept those differences, we can reach our full potential, we can "rise and touch the stars."

We Are One
Rona wrote and sang the lyrics to this song like a mantra with a great sense of spirit. With the singing bowls and backing vocals by Heidi and Elly the three created an embracing and warm sacred space of union, love and acceptance. In this day we want to dedicate this song to whom ever lost their loved ones. We Are One and forever united in eternity.

Breathe & Be
Rona: Elly contacted me on the network and I fell in love with her voice and vibe. Once she recorded her vocal track and guitar on the beat it was really easy to add my part, she framed the song so well with her music and lyrics. The beat is on the Downtempo darker electronic side and incorporates a lot of effects used in different ways and on various sounds to create an enchanting atmosphere. For me it's usually all about the drums and rhythm and the unexpected textures I can create with them. I like that the song is so full of hope but the beat is mysterious, like life; It’s a deranged perfect pop song ;) Elly: Rona created a mystique soundscape that tickled my imagination and the lyrics and guitar part came to me smoothly. Lyrically for me it's all about knowing that, after all, we are all part of the same tribe and we all just need connection and to be heard and seen. Reut Yehudai: Additional Vocals.

Mountains of Men - Elly Kellner and Sandro Friedrich
Elly: When I heard Sandro's music on his profile I immediately could hear these beautiful sounds on this song. I was delighted that Sandro wanted to add his Bansuri flute to it. If we got the chance to re-record this we would make the song longer with more instrumental space for the Bansuri melodies.
