Kelvin Klaassen is a 24-year old singer-songwriter currently residing in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. For years now he has been climbing many a stage to proclaim his own unique musical vision.
Armed with his powerful voice,idiosyncratic guitar-style and evocative lyrics Kelvin will take you on a winding musical journey to a destination unknown.
His music can be described as a dynamic, mysterious brand of folk with light touches of jazz and blues, and is coloured by a healthy dose of admiration for the legendary songwriters of the early seventies. Comparisons with Jeff Buckley, Alex Turner, Leonard Cohen and David Crosby have already been made.
Kelvin was named ‘Best singer-songwriter of the Radboud University campus’ in 2014, and more awards and accolades were soon to follow. Music platform 3voor12 Gelderland lauded his debut EP ‘Moon and Chain’ (2015) writing that “Kelvin Klaassen fills the heart with warmth an melancholy.. This is music that will make you close your eyes, sit back and simply enjoy.”
