She won the Concours de la Chanson in 2012, performed for both radio and tv and made plans to take things abroad. In October 2013 her decut album 'Davine' came out, a collection of the best Chansons. The album was received very well.
Orange Skyline – Rapture (from Groningen)
Orange Skyline is a Dutch indie band formed in 2012. They draw their inspiration from 60s bands, gainsbourgian mancunian French pop music and rock and roll bravado. The band makes clever songs with a very recognizable catchy sound. The band consists of Niels van der Wielen, Mart Atema, Stefan van der Wielen and Simon Christiaanse.
Inge van Calkar – Holding On To You (from Groningen)
Inge van Calkar is probably one of the only singer-songwriters who doesn't prefer silence in the room where she plays. The thing she loves to do most is treat her public with her energetic songs. She loves Folk, but in her own songs she mostly needs energy and Inge has an ambition to make a good and catchy pop song. On stage is her chance to tell her story. With her participation on 'de beste singer-songwriter van Nederland' she does that with a lot of public.
Florian Wolff – Into You (from Groningen)
Florian Wolff wants to leave the world two things: a huge catalogue filled with beautiful songs and.. nothing. Because, despite of his rather large shoe size, Flrian aims for leaving a foorprint that is as small as possible. He takes a step in the right direction with The Nature of Things, since the songs of this record will make you want to turn down the heat two degrees in winter.
Hangover Paradise – Coming Home (from Drenthe)
Hangover Paradise is a symphonic pop-rockband, inspired by the music of greats such a Genesis, Marillion, Rush and Pink Floyd. The band consists of six experienced ad versatile musicians. Each song is a self-contained musical adventure; full sounding and played with passion. Beautiful introductions; sometimes grandiose; sometimes smooth. All this combined with tuneful passionate vocals and the variety and range provided by 2 accomplished keyboard players make Hangover Paradise a symphonic rockadventure.
