FRIDOLIJN Short Info

"A deceitfully innocent voice"

Fridolijn first appeared in 2011 with the release of 'Crossing the Rubicon', by her band Finn Silver. An impressive debut, that used jazz, pop and hiphop influences to create an original sound. The album was received exceptionally well, reaching top chart positions in Holland and Japan. It was released in many different countries and brought the band to stages like Billboard Live Tokyo & Osaka as well as North Sea Jazz Festival. Itunes awarded the band 'New Jazz Artist of the Year'.

In 2013 she decided to take a step back to focus on writing music again. Drummer Richard Spaven, whom she collaborated with for Finn Silver, introduced her to Danny Fisher and David Austin; two songwriters with whom she ended up writing the majority of her album, during several songwriting trips to the idyllic British countryside.

With a British band of Richard Spaven on drums (Jose James/ Flying Lotus), Grant Windsor on keys (Jose James/ Gregory Porter), fellow songwriters Danny Fisher and David Austin on acoustic guitars, and Alex Bonfanti on bass she recorded her new album in the summer of 2014 at the Aviary studio in London. With these recordings she travelled to Berlin in October 2014, where she recorded the vocals and mixed the album with Axel Reinemer, at the Jazzanova Recording Studio.

The result is Catching Currents: a striking solo debut that blurs the boundaries between cinematic folk, singersongwriter, jazz, electronica, and broken beats and blends them into touching songs.

Catching Currents is out now in Japan on Pvine Records,
The album will be released on V2 Records benelux and Finetunes Germany during the fall of 2015.
