Anne Groen is a Dutch band that plays alternative psychedelic pop with progressive twists and a touch of rock, but with their own teasing-sound. The lyrics are poetic and vivacious. They offer an exciting program for soul, eye and ear. Jefferson Airplane, Warpaint, Sia, Tori Amos and Jeff Buckley are their source of inspiration.
Since a few years they are busy performing on stages and competitions. After winning the competition Kunstbende Noord-Holland in 2013, frontwoman Anne played with the band during the national finals at venue Melkweg (Amsterdam). They also played at several festivals, like Mixtream Festival, Bevrijdingspop Haarlem and Rotterdam and at venues like Paradiso Amsterdam, Victorie Alkmaar and Patronaat Haarlem.
In 2013 debut album, Anne Groen, was released, and not much later the summer song ‘Mystery Birds’ was on 3voor12 Luisterpaal of the month July. After Anne graduated from a successful school year at the music college LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts), she came back to the Netherlands, where she now studies at the Conservatorium of Amsterdam. In November they released the EP ‘Anna’, of which every song is released with a music video. Unfortunately, Anne has quitted the project, but the recorded music and video’s will stay forever!
“Anne Groen immediately creates goose bumps moments with her powerful voice, her great range and fine guitar playing.” – 3voor12
