My single is out now!

HELLO! I have awesome news to tell you! My new single and videoclip are out now!

The song is called Blackbird.

I am very proud of the videoclip, because I made it in a very special collaboration with my mom Joyce Willemse. She is an amazing person, creative mind, artist and poet. The film is based on an art installation by her.


I wrote Blackbird during the first lockdown here in the Netherlands, which is almost a year ago. Pfff that's a strange thing to realize! I hope you're doing okay! Honestly, working on this project has really helped me through. It was a positive distraction and outlet for me. When I wrote the song, I felt inspired by the strength I saw emerging in people, to come together and contribute to a better world. I hope this song will give you hope and strength to hold on to in this challenging time.


That's all friends! Stay safe! :)
