Wouter Marijne is a singer-songwriter from Utrecht, The Netherlands. After more than 100 gigs with his band Sailing To Suez, he finally has found some time to fulfill one of his dreams: creating a solo EP. This record, called “Laughing Man” was inspired by singer-songwriters such as Jeff Buckley, Pete Doherty, John Mayer and Ryan Adams but also by bands like Oasis, The Smiths and R.E.M. Because of this, attention is being paid on strong choruses rather than songs for tearing up, and funky guitar playing instead of epic harmonica solo's. It all should remain a little rock 'n roll, anyway. Tennyson King – it’s a name that evokes notions of classic, literary depth and majesty. But it also has the hallowed ring of the gritty, earthy roots of rock and roll. Songwriters Guild Live is a weekly radioshow in Amsterdam, focussed on singers who write songs. This week your host was Rufus Kain.

Dutch Cassidy: a little bit country, a little bit rock’n’roll. Songs that don’t shy away from describing intimate personal challenges and crossing lines. Hey, it’s cheaper than therapy!” is how this singer/songwriter describes his songwriting. Stephen James Howard is a forty-something English bedroom singer-songwriter and former street busker still tinkering with home recording and live performance. He first played bass guitar in bands at school and college in Basingstoke in the 1980s. His amateur songwriting on acoustic guitar started at this time, continued through his university days at Manchester in the early 90s, but fell dormant during lost years of sporadic performance as a busker and karaoke party trick – including several months playing the Paris metro.

Songwriters Guild Live by Amsterdam Songwriters Guild - 1M ago

Songwriters Guild Live is a weekly radioshow in Amsterdam, focussed on artists who write their own songs. This week your host was Ro Halfhide. A Montréal-born Trinidadian-Canadian, Zaynab comes to the music scene with a wealth of cultural and musical diversity. Her recent Live EP (2018), is the debut to her career as a fronting singer-songwriter where she draws musical and rhythmic inspiration from her Caribbean roots and merges with folk, her heart and soul. Her voice is sweet, unaffected and naturally blended, and carries a strong sense of rhythm. Zaynab grew up in a large family of musicians, specializing on Steelpan, and got an early start to the life of an artist. Being the youngest of the lot of six children, the formula was already set by the time she was six. Zaynab was performing throughout Eastern Canada with her family, the "Von-Trapps of Steelpan", and gaining invaluable life lessons. Now, in addition to steelpan, Zaynab has grown into a sensitive, dynamic and well-rounded musician and is an equally talented percussionist, vocalist, songwriter and drummer, holding a drum-major degree from Humber College. Over the years, Zaynab has had the opportunity to perform with a variety of local and international artists including Alysha Brilla, Jason Wilson, Martin Carthy, Dave Swarbrick and Pee Wee Ellis, and performing at notable festivals including Woodford Folk Festival (Australia), Hillside Festival (Canada) and Celtic Connections (Scotland). On her own front, Zaynab took her Live EP tour on the road to Western Canada in September 2018 and over to Eastern Canada with Arlene Paculan in November 2018, performing in both house concerts and local live music venues. As for 2019, Zaynab is working towards releasing a series of singles, a new EP and tour dates, so far, in both Canada and USA. When she isn’t performing, Zaynab runs music workshops at various schools within the multiple school boards in Ontario. Her workshops are delivered using steelpan, percussion or band instruments with the goal being more than learning repertoire. Her workshops run in schools with higher numbers of newcomers to Canada, for groups with special learning abilities, as part of health and wellness conferences and for overall team building and strengthening of non-verbal and nonviolent communication. She recently attended a Musicians Without Borders Training of Workshop Leaders program, in Ede, to help enhance her workshop leading abilities. In a realistic world, Zaynab would be able to integrate touring as a performer and running music-based workshops along the way.

The moody orchestra is a project of Amsterdam based, German singer- songwriter Tobias Oeckler. While mostly playing live on his own, his recorded works reach from fragile songwriting craft to collaborated tunes in more ,orchestrated’ garments, so to say. His latest albums ‚a big step’ and ‚aum’, that he simultaneously self-produced, clearly show this vibrant mix of contradicting opposites. His songs are characterized by their personal and poetic lyrics, sometimes cryptic and mysterious, sometimes chrystal clear, but almost always carried out in a cleansing melancholic mood. Combining elements of folk, punk, pop and roots rock, Matt Pless can lyrically turn a phrase with the best of them. He has been compared to some of the top songwriters of our time, including John Lennon, Paul Simon, John Prine and Bob Dylan. Known for his engaging and thought-provoking, witty, word labyrinths, Matt's music spans topics from love and loss to social commentary to ethereal train-of-thought abstractions, and everything in between.

This week we combine two bonus sessions I recorded with The Brother Brothers, and Hannah Trigwell. The Brother Brothers is a vocal duo group from New York, consisting of identical twins. They remind me a lot of Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers. Hannah Trigwell is a singer-songwriter from Leeds, who has a major following on Youtube. She started out her success with posting videos of acoustic covers on her channel. Songwriters Guild Live is a weekly radioshow in Amsterdam, focussed on artists who write their own songs.

Songwriters Guild Live by Amsterdam Songwriters Guild - 1M ago

Songwriters Guild Live is a weekly radioshow in Amsterdam, focussed on artists who write their own songs. This week your host was Ro Halfhide. At first, when you listen to Rachman’s music you’ll hear traces of folk, blues and soul. But when you listen more closely more aspects of the music reveal itself. The clear melodies, the intricate fingerpicking and the lyrics that build scenes in which you can wander endlessly. Rachman’s craft is all about the song, taking cues from heroes like: Stevie wonder, Bill Withers, The Fleet foxes and John Mayer. Small songs with big intent, songs that celebrate life.
