The series of Artist Exposed for the ZXZW 2009 fest, highlights the artists you definitely do not want to miss!
Kim Janssen is a Dutch singer-songwriter that uses his fragile voice and an acoustic guitar to create songs that appear to break into thousand pieces like a wine glass as soon as he opens his mouth. It sounds like a poppy folksinger, that reminds one vaguely of a Sufjan Stevens gone solo with the gripping emotion of Sigur Rós. You would want to see this because this just might be the next big thing coming from the Netherlands. He sometimes performs with his personal band ‘The Major Cities band’ which can make his songs a little less brittle.
April 18th 2009, Kim Janssen presented his debut album ‘The truth is, I am always responsible’ in Groningen.
