I was born in utrecht, the netherlands, into a classical music-loving family. I sang in the church choir and the violin was my first instrument for years. almost by accident did I discover jazz. the freedom to improvise fascinated me. I quickly gravitated towards it and started studying at the utrechts conservatorium during my last year of high school.
I majored in jazz vocals at the conservatory of amsterdam - a wonderful 4 years where my love for music deepened. I met some fantastic musicians and was lucky enough to be mentored by a number of inspiring teachers.
after graduating cum laude in 2017, eager for a new challenge, I moved to berlin to pursue a degree in history and political science. currently residing in kreuzberg, you can find me singing all around town. with my band Bitter Blond, for example, or the swing collective Pauline Peek and her Sweet Nothings.
here you will find selected recordings - new ones are added extremely irregularly
