Projects make life interesting
Life is too short to just be playing with one single act.... So many interesting people, so much beautiful or otherwise inspiring music to be heard, played, shared... Sometimes solo, sometimes with a duo, or a trio, or someone else's project...

NU - Eva van Pelt
Status: active. Very special project, of a very dear friend.
With this new project "NU" (now), Eva is pushing the boundaries set by the format of a popconcert. She brings new songs, exciting arrangements, spoken word and improvisations, using a performance format that is entirely focused on and centered around "contact".
Focus, love, guts, exposure, energy and strength
"It is here, it is now, and it is because you are here" - Eva
