Nienke is a young 18-year-old singer-songwriter from a little town in the south-west of The Netherlands. Equipped with a beautiful voice and great musical talent, she amazes her fellow musicians and the audience. Not only with her love for blues, Americana, country, jazz, and soul but also with her ability to sing from the heart.

She started to seriously develop her singing skills and love for the blues when she was only 12 years old just by making music with two friends every Saturday morning. Singing lessons from mentor/teacher Caspar de Jonge and visiting concerts of Beth Hart, Tedeschi Trucks Band, North Sea Jazz and a variety of other known and unknown artists, makes that she continues to grow. In September of 2022, she started her studies at the pop department of Codarts in Rotterdam.

At a young age she climbed the stage of the monthly jam session in Gebouw T (Bergen op Zoom), which she still enjoys doing very much. At sixteen she was invited by Bart Kamp and Richard van Bergen to the yearly Fat Tuesday Party in Dongen, an amazing opportunity to share the stage with a group of very talented musicians.

Writing her own songs only started when she was able to accompany herself, first on the piano and later by guitar. Lyrics very often poetic and inspired by her love for storytelling.

In 2020 she started working with producers and multi-instrumentalists Jan van Bijnen and Joost Verbraak (Swamp Dogg, Jim Keller. Dutch icons Freek de Jonge and Rob de Nijs) which resulted in the release of her first album with 6 own songs ‘Devil on my Shoulder’ in December 2021, for which she received a nomination for Best Cd by the Dutch Foundation. And this collaboration still continues today.


In 2022 she was interviewed and performed live on national radio (Veronica - Soundz Live) and in that same year she was also interviewed live for NPO2 at North Sea Jazz festival in Rotterdam.

Support act for Ana Popovic in de Groene Engel in Oss and for Jan Akkerman in 013 in Tilburg. Also performed live during Sena Guitar Award as support act for Vandenberg.

Together with Jan, Joost and base player Joris Verbogt (Bradley’s Circus, The Wild Century) they perform live at various festivals and with the theater show `Hoe een meisje van 14 de blues kreeg’ in theaters in both Holland and Belgium.


Now she’s working on her second album which is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2023.
