22-05-2019 Dizzy Moon 22: St. Maane / Sophie Reekers
22 May 2019 @ 21:30
22nd edition of the singer-songwriter series Dizzy Moon, hosted by Mark Ritsema. This edition is powered by Music Matters. Free Entrance.
“A Fascinating combination of dark poetry and an intimate voice,” the jury of de Grote Prijs van Rotterdam responded to the performance of St. Maane on this singer-songrwriters contest in 2017. Needless to say she won. St. Maane (real name Birgit de Priester) was raised on a musical diet of Tom Waits and Lou Reed. This reflects in her music to which she ads inspiration from Nick Cave, Timber Timbre a.o.. In 2018 she was part of de Popronde and played in Sicily. She released a video-single via the webzine The Daily Indie and is currently working on her debut.
You may know Sophie Reekers as the front woman of the Rotterdam based band Meneer van Dalen. She is their main songwriter. Also as a solo-act she performs Dutch songs that are slightly absurd or have crazy witticisms. She likes to point at the things that happen around her and turn them into songs. “look around, zoom in, zoom in some more and than zoom out,” in her own words. Highly original and touching are her songs inspired by the often disarming children’s columns Achterwerk in the TV guide VPRO Gids.
