Vocalist Sietske Roscam Abbing (1985) is currently active with her modern jazz-oriented band that just released it’s debut album “Where it starts again” (Berthold Records, Oct 2014), and in various projectbased formations. She studied jazz in the bachelors – and masters program at the conservatory of Amsterdam (graduated june 2012).
“Roscam Abbing possesses a disarming freshness and expresses herself with complete sincerity”
“She’s got all the technique and knows how to use it in a very musical subtle way. Her core-value is communication from the heart; with gentle power she seduces the audience to connect with each other and the world. A worthy aim”
Jan Jasper Tamboer – Jazzenzo magazine
“How great is it to live in a time where we have access to influences from all over the world as well as the great legacy of the musical icons that have paved the road before us? Let’s exploit this possibility and create the most amazing remixes ;-)…“
In my musical journey so far I was inspired by some wonderful teachers and great musicians in lessons, courses and masterclasses (vocalists active in the Netherlands and Europe, as well as oversees). Among others: Hartog Eysman, Dennis Kivit, Annemarie Maas, Herman van Doorn, Lydia van Dam, Lieve Geuens (classical singer), Gé Titulaer, Eugenie Ditewig (classical singer), Eva Baggerman, Edwin Rutten, Annett Andriessen, Josee Koning, Sanna van Vliet, Bart-jan te boekhorst (actor), Sylvi Lane, Marc Murphy, Denise Jannah, Nancy Marano, Gino Vannelli, Rhiannon (vocalist, free improvisor), Amy London, Deborah Brown, Nancy Gabor (actress), Joanna Pascale, Julie Bishop (classical singer), David Linx, Kurt Elling, Becca Stevens, Tierney Sutton, Gretchen Parlato.
…as well as by listening to their recordings and going to their concerts. To name a few more (vocalists, in different genres): Nancy Wilson, Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley, Sting, Kurt Elling, Gregory Porter, Becca Stevens, James Blake, Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote) and many more, all artists exploring the boundaries of jazz and other idioms as we know them now.
