“I’ve had the luck to be invited to play in different venues, big and small throughout my career.
I would never have been the artist that I’m now without the support of the grassroots venues. Smaller clubs were the perfect preparation for the bigger festivals.
Both the intimacy between public and artist and the creative process on stage only reach their full potential in grassroots venues. That’s why they’re still my favourite place to perform.
Some of these venues have a special place in my heart after all these years. Like ‘Het Depot’ in my hometown Leuven. Quite often it’s a combination of the atmosphere, the public, the sound on stage and the cosy backstage. Not to mention the excellent food.
If everything is right, all conditions are fulfilled for an unforgettable evening.”
