JoosTVD is a grooving funky, but also romantic soul. DIY, one-man's band, I've composed about 1000 songs so far..and counting. Used to play and record everything myself, but with modern technology that all changed and now I use real live played loops and combine that with jazzy playing, a touch of improvisation and bluesy rasp blue-eyed soul singing.
At first I started out as a drummer and played with a lot of bands in Holland. I found out that I could write songs too and ended up as a singer and did a lot of crazy stuff on stage to wake up the crowd. Now I record and write a lot and sometimes I miss playing these songs with a grooving band [HINT?], but on the other hand I feel very comfortable doing it all by myself. Trying to make my own mark on music.
he describes himself as a "zelfbevlekkende, narcistische, selfkickende, obsessieve, uitknijpende liedjesmaker" which loosely translates (I think) as a "self-denigrating, narcissistic, self-flagellating squeezer-out of songs" as freely translated by Mr Freshnet Tom Robinson. His song Bomb Won´t Go Off featured on his BBC6 Radio show in november 2012. (and it fellt great). Stupid Song(s) landed on his Radio6 Mixtape in november of 2013. Various songs are now reguarly played on Croydon radio. (London). After 6 raving albumreviews by Nathan Nörgel in his online german culture magazine Wasser-Prawda, Nathan played two songs on his Radio 98eins program.
So tell me what you think of the songs. Did I just see your feet move?
