BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

Charismatic singer-songwriter with playful band.

Biography

Years ago Wotienke was a girl singing behind a piano by herself in Amsterdam but while living in the Czech Republic she became a band. The unlikely musical long-distance relationship between the Dutch singer-songwriter and four Czech musicians turns out be very fruitful.

Authenticity, simplicity and a playful performance are central their music. Lyrical inspiration comes from regular elements in life such as love and curiosity but an uncle who became rich by selling sand to desert people or commuting from one city to the other also formed the basis for songs.

Besides opening for the Czech underground legends PsĂ­ VoyacĂ­ Frames front man Glen Hensard, they have toured through big parts of Europe. Together the traveled through the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany and the Netherlands, usually playing in clubs, jazz bars or festivals but recently they adapted their songs for intimate house concerts.
