The week between Christmas and New Year’s eve means in Holland the publication of the Top2000 list. A list based on votes by people all over the globe. This man, Marinus de Goederen, is on this list ’cause he made us promise to vote for him at his concert. And because he deserves to be on that list. But despite this, I still think he’s one of the most forgotten singersongwriters in Holland, and that has to stop. His music is pure and describes strange situations (there’s an album about a car crash, and a lost porn star). A Balladeer is his band from Amsterdam, his solo project is called mr. a balladeer. Please check this band out, they deserve it.
