Successful EINZELGÄNGER release

News, April 9th, 2022

EINZELGÄNGER - a succesful release!

Since the release of EINZELGÄNGER on March 22, I have received many positive reactions.
I’m very grateful for that!

Within more than 2 weeks the followers at Facebook has increased to 120!
The 2 promoted posts are much appreciated with a lot of likes (121 and 71!). It’s amazing!
These 2 posts at Facebook have also added more monthly listeners at Spotify (from 4 to 25 🙂 Jihaa!)
The streams at Soundcloud have reached the 130 (!) and keeps increasing every day.

Besides this all I’ve received all kinds of nice messages privately in reaction of this release.
I would like to thank everyone for the major support. I really didn’t expect this to happen!

Many many thanks.
Rob

EINZELGÄNGER - online

I started this song in the middle of 2021 and it was planned to release it on an EP of 4 songs in which the ‘main track’ was EINZELGÄNGER. It is now March 2022 and it has remained at 1 track.

Glad to finally be able to release something new. It is indeed autobiographical because by nature I am really a EINZELGÄNGER and prefer to be on my own without too many people.

But we live in a world, and certainly in Amsterdam, that ‘without too many people’ is quite a task….
Still, I’ve found my secret spots where I can really be the EINZELGÄNGER…

Translation to English

News, August 16, 2021

Dutch to English translation

Because I promoted several posts on Facebook worldwide, a large number of foreign followers have been added recently. Of course I am very pleased with it!

That’s why I’ve decided to post everything on facebook and this website in the English language from now on, so i will be able to reach a larger target group and everyone understands what it’s all about.

Right now I’m busy converting this entire website to English (for now excluding the biography).

Back on Facebook

News,  August 8, 2021

Back on Facebook

I have reconsidered my decision to stop using Facebook to promote my music, photography and graphic design.

I was a bit premature to delete the Facebook page as there are still a few followers who regretted that they could no longer follow me but had to check this website themselves to see if I had released something.

So here we are again and created a new page.
Of course I’ve lost the 100 followers but I post a message on my private facebook so the ‘facebook friends’ can decide for themselves to follow me.

In addition, I also posted several messages (promotional) to reach a wider audience outside the Netherlands.

UPDATE 01-10-2021
106 followers at the new facebook page!
Really cool. Thanks everyone!

SLOWLY successful!

News, May 12, 2021

SLOWLY more successful than I expected...​

Within 3 days, SLOWLY has already passed the hundred listeners on SoundCloud! But the foreign streaming services are also listening a lot. Bizarre! I never expected that since I recently deleted the ‘Facebook Music page’ with over 100 followers!

As a test, this time I only reported the release via the ‘promotion tool’ of a separate Facebook Page to see what happens then.
To be on the safe side, I did not include the Netherlands in the promotion, only several other countries in Europe.

Since this is not really an accessible song, there are quite a few nice positive reactions coming my way.
I am also aware that there will be a lot of people who think it is ‘dredging’ but that’s no problem, everyone is allowed to have an opinion of course. I just throw everything online that I like and enjoy it immensely.

On Soundcloud I have a sort of ‘ranking list’ of all 24 songs that are now on it. So SLOWLY is already at number 12 with 102 listeners!

16/08/21 UPDATE:
SLOWLY has been streamed about 234 times and is now at number 6 (!)

You van check out the whole list on SOUNDCLOUD.

'SLOWLY' 20 years later...​

In 2001 I wrote a song ‘Slowly’ which ended up on the Promo CD of The Green Circle, the project I was working on at the time. An experimental song about experiencing contact with deceased persons.

I know there is more between heaven and earth and had the need to write a song about it.
It’s a song that you either love or hate! Make your own choice….

Now 20 years later I have made a remake of the song, added new vocals, played new instruments, effects etc. I am extremely proud of the result.

From today, the 10th of May, available on Spotify, Soundcloud, Apple Music and the foreign streaming services.

Profile on DISCOGS

News, April 13, 2021

A DISCOGS profile!

Finally managed to be admitted to the huge Vinyl and CD database DISCOGS!

This is a website that I am totally addicted to because you can find absolutely everything that has been released in the field of music on vinyl and CD. But really everything worldwide!

Since I release my music without a label and independently, it was a bit difficult to get this done, but finally everything is on it! With all photos, videos and info.

Very proud to be a part of this now.

Succesvolle release ON THE OUTSIDE !

Succesvolle release ON THE OUTSIDE!

Beste volgers,

Op 12 februari heb ik ON THE OUTSIDE online gezet op YouTube en SoundCloud.
De vele positieve reacties die ik heb mogen ontvangen via social media, apps, telefoon etc. waren hartverwarmend! Dit had ik écht niet verwacht…. enorm bedankt daarvoor.

De video is op YouTube al binnen 4 dagen ruim 400 keer bekeken! En het aantal blijft dagelijks steeds verder oplopen…..echt ongelofelijk! Op de één of andere manier is de video in het buitenland ook ‘opgepikt’ want ik krijg veel likes op facebook via buitenlandse personen.
Op Soundcloud staat de teller inmiddels op 75 en ook hier loopt het verder per dag op.

Deze song heeft voor mij een speciale betekenis aangezien dit het zogenaamde ‘crematie-nummer’ is van mijn beide ouders. Het verhaal er achter kun je lezen op de info-pagina.

Ik ben in ieder geval blij, trots maar ook enorm verbaasd dat het zo uitpakt….
Nogmaals bedankt voor jullie steun en reacties.
