Support by Productiehuis Oost-Nederland

January 1st, 2015


In september 2014, Productiehuis Oost-Nederland (ON) showed their interest in NNENN, after they already supported Johanneke’s solo work. We showed them our studio recordings and they were convinced, it needed a stage. To help us, explore our music intensely, they offered us their place in Deventer where artists such as No Blues, Kyteman, BOT and Knarsetand have been working out their ideas before. Back then, we lived in Enschede, so when we went to ON, we used to stay for days. It felt like camping; we’d come with the big lilac bus of our friend Arthur (didn’t have our own car yet), packed with food, juggler balls, bikes, pictures to spread on the table to find connections with the music and of course our gear. Knowing that we wouldn’t bother anyone, we’d make music till deep in the night. It sometimes occurred that we woke up, completely unaware if it was morning, afternoon or night; we’d shut all the hatches. We lived completely isolated, in our own bubble and that is how we worked our way to our first try-out shows a couple of months later. It was a truly inspiring time that we look back on with a big smile. We’re grateful for the opportunities that ON offers us and we’re looking forward to the future!

The beginning of NNENN

September 9th, 2014


About a year ago, we started a musical adventure that we’ve been working on passionately ever since. We decided to call it NNENN, because we feel that NNENN is the point where our different musical approaches resemble and find each other. If you write down our names like this:

you’ll literally see what we mean; Welcome to NNENN!
