Feeling a bit camera shy


Too Different was founded by two friends, Mike van der Vaart and Eric Pinas . 
They took  the name 'too different' because of their different origins and influences.

In 2002 they formed a rock / rap band together with Hielke Bruil (bass)  and Floris de Vreede(drums) Mike was on guitar / vocals and Eric on Rap vocals. With this they became the winner of the bandcontest  Grand Prix of Voorne -Putten in 2003  , with performances at  TexMex spijkenisse , Spykepop 2003 and Wallenpop Hellevoetsluis.

There were extensions of studio ,  additions of family and  and the rise of Eric's  sports gym (which he is founder of);  that was the time that it went quiet around the band.

But in 2012 came the first new demos on the Internet and these do very well internationally . There was a video clip recorded in 2013 in TexMex with audience. Their demo's are now worldwide played on various internet radio stations : in Germany alone there are over 29,000 song plays and more 10,000 views of homemade video clips, and more than 6,000 views on YouTube and with rave reviews from American websites.

On June 26 , 2015  release of debut ep album titled: Rebirth, which contains 7 songs

Their music is catchy oldskool ,s 70' s  like, Rock in combination with Rap

Current Line up : Mike van der Vaart ( lead vocals/guitar) Eric Pinas ( Rapvocals/keyboard) Floris de Vreede (drums) Hielke Bruil (Bass)
