The radioshow of February 22 with Sterre Weldring & Wynnm

With live guests Wynnm and Sterre Weldring, presented by Ro Halfhide

Wynnm is a singer songwriter from Pocatello, Idaho living in Amsterdam, Netherlands whose dreamy vocals and melodic guitar riffs have connected with audiences since her young years playing open mic nights in her family's small cafĂ©. With songs inspired by artists and lyricists like Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Bon Iver and the Staves, Wynnm seeks to use music to connect with the commonalities of human experience and the influence of the natural world. 

Sterre Weldring is a 20 year old singer-songwriter from Alkmaar, Netherlands, active since her 15th in music. She studied at BIMM music school in Brighton last year, and played venues like Paradiso, Melkweg and Sofar London. With her honest and melancholy voice she tells stories about love and relations. File under Folk/Pop, with influences such as LP, Tom Odell and Rhodes.

Radioshow Songwriters Guild Live of January 25 with Wouter Maryne and Tennyson King

Wouter Marijne is a singer-songwriter from Utrecht, The Netherlands. After more than 100 gigs with his band Sailing To Suez, he finally has found some time to fulfill one of his dreams: creating a solo EP. This record, called “Laughing Man” was inspired by singer-songwriters such as Jeff Buckley, Pete Doherty, John Mayer and Ryan Adams but also by bands like Oasis, The Smiths and R.E.M. Because of this, attention is being paid on strong choruses rather than songs for tearing up, and funky guitar playing instead of epic harmonica solo's. It all should remain a little rock 'n roll, anyway.

Tennyson King – it’s a name that evokes notions of classic, literary depth and majesty. But it also has the hallowed ring of the gritty, earthy roots of rock and roll.
