MELL- I See Your Eyes Everywhere
At the age of 10 she has her first guitar lessons. MELL enjoys it so much that she, a little girl with a way too big guitar, jumps on the local stages and by doing that steals a few musical hearts. A few of those hearts belong to the guys of the 3JS. When she's 15 the 3JS write her a song. In 2014 she can come on their theatre tour and be their support act and by doing this gets to know the larger stages.

They find a place in your head and try to stay there for as long as possible. It sounds big, warm and gives you hope.
Timo de Jong - Show the world to you (from Drenthe)
Singer-songwriter Timo de Jong from Meppel writes his songs about a variety of subjects and plays calm and lively compositions on his guitar. Using the Greek word 'Meraki', which stands for the soul, the love or the creativity you put into your work, Timo describes his EP, which he released last year. Meanwhile, the production of his new CD is in full swing.
Jim Kerr ft. Mir - The Deep Blue Sea (from Friesland)
The idea behind The Deep Blue Sea dated back to the Proms Concerts where Simple Minds and Mirjam Timmer (formally of Twarres) were both performing. Mirjam was asked to provide backing vocals for the demo, although they couldn’t use her performance for the final recording, as there was interference on the microphone. In the famous recording studio Wisseloord they recorded eventually the song.
