‘By now we're back home with our families after a great discovery tour through the US. We're busy preparing for an awesome fall-theater tour in Germany and the Netherlands. This is my second blog I wrote during our time in the US.'

My first steps on the stage of the Odeon-De Spiegel theater in Zwolle. From the loading dock I find myself in a mysterious dark world of wings. Soundcheck is already in progress. I follow the sound and all of a sudden I look upon the majestic sight of 900 red chairs staring at me in expectation… My heart pounds in my throat. Here, on this stage it’s going to happen: the premiere of our first ever theater tour!

Over the past few weeks, as we’ve been working on new lyrics and music I find myself barefoot, standing in front of this giant peace of clay. Kicking and punching away at it in order to form it into something beautiful.
I loved arts and crafts back in school. The whole idea of getting your hands dirty to make something appealing (or appalling (-;) just excited me. I spent hours and hours trying to bring meaning and life to the materials. And of all the materials, I loved clay the most. Don't exactly know why, but I guess I loved it because of the whole process. Moulding it, drying it (hopefully without breaking) and then: the oven!

Some things in life you dream of. As a musician you dream of playing in a big stadium or of giving an amazing concert in a beautiful theater where everybody listens breathlessly to your every song. Dreams sometimes seem to come true all by themselves but nothing could be less true, even for musicians. To get to playing in a theater with the audience hanging from your lips you need to make sure the theater is filled up with people and, equally important, that your songs and musical skills are at such a level that your listeners can forget everything and be touched by them.
