Aged 23, this Belgian brings original songs in the tradition of the North Mississippi Hill Country Blues, characterized by a stompbox, a growling voice and distinct slide guitar accompaniment.

Personal highlights include opening for Jan Akkerman, one of the world most reknown guitarists, getting represented by both Chulahoma Blues & Roots Booking Agency and Rootstown, and headlining at the Van Thom Weekender 2014 in Bremen. 2015 has been a year of musical co-operations, with shared stages with Gipsy Rufina (IT), Tim Holehouse (UK), Dylan Walshe (IR), Freeborn Brothers (PL), Long Line Down (DK), Reverend Deadeye (US), ... UPDATE: Signed with Mofomusic Label in Germany, so I'll be recording my first album soon - and it will be released Spring 2016. This means the world to me actually, and I get to 'brag' that I'm on the same label as Hollowbelly.
