Melancholic indie folk from Nijmegen, The Netherlands

The Dutch indie folk singer Niekse plays melancholic songs. With a backpack full of band experience, he makes his way through a world through a world that fascinates him ever since childhood, solo since 2015. His sound is inspired by both traditional folk/americana and contemporary indie music, resulting in an ambient, recognisable blend.

In March 2016, his untitled debut EP was festively released in his hometown Nijmegen, and celebrated with shows in The Netherlands, Germany and France. Also, Niekse is the co-founder and a proud member of the Liedjescollectief.

Niekse’s first full-length album is due out in March 2018 and will be accompanied by another series of live performances.
