Wouter Planteijdt and Marijn Wijnands met shortly after the release of Marijn’s debut cd “Stills” and they started to work together. She did some vocals at his solo albums and they recorded together and that was all very much fun and satisfying. Finally Wouter asked Marijn if she would agree if he would make an album with her voice and her songs.
Because there was no pressure and no money it took some years. They recorded in rehearsal rooms and in their own houses.
Wouter invited a bunch of very fine musicians to participate, and they all agreed this was very special and decided to form a real band.
In 2007 the cd Harbour was finally ready with money and help from a lot of friends.
Harbour was presented in Paradiso, Amsterdam, and got a lot of great reviews by the Dutch press.
Marijn and band were compared to Lucinda Williams, Suzanne Vega, Sandy Denny, and Gillian Welch and the songs are told to be authenthic, pure and deep.
Country and psychedelic influences as well as sweet and haunting melodies and slow funky grooves are all part of the mixture.
“Americana but with a very personal touch(...) Wijnands sings pure and moving, sweet, but not unworldly, poëtic and powerful in all her reserve."
(quote from NRC Handelsblad, the major newspaper in the Netherlands ) The band calls it SOULFOLK.
