The greatest thing to me is to be on stage with other musicians, make the music I love and make people happy while doing so. That's why my biggest passion is to perform with a band. And some of the music I love most, is the music by Billy Joel and Elton John, two of the world's biggest selling artists of all time. Both singers, pianists and songwriters and therefore a great inspiration to me and my music. In 2010 I came up with the idea to start a band called the Piano Man Band, playing the songs of my musical heroes.
In 2017, after years of playing regularly as a "piano man" at hotel bars, I finally got the group together with which I felt ready to start performing the amazing repertoire of Billy Joel and Elton John.

Since 2006 I've also performed my own songs with my own bands in Holland, Belgium and Switzerland. This has mainly been piano based pop/rock, like most of the songs I've written and recorded. But I've always enjoyed flirting with different music styles - like jazz, blues, country, funk and even hiphop - which could be heard in some of my projects and performances over the years. I always like to try out new things and discover new directions, although as a singer and songwriter I have mainly been influenced by the sounds of the sixties and seventies.
