"There are a lot of great singers in this world but not all are gifted with a voice that is
at once captivating and yet familiar all in the same breath. Clementine has that kind
of voice. The kind of voice that pulls you in like a friend sharing a secret and at the
same time gently compelling you to listen to her interpret the lyrics of whatever
song she’s singing. In my professional experience I’ve just described the difference
between a good singer and the kind of voice that makes a star, there’s an intangible
“it” that separates the two, you’ve either got that special “it” or you don’t and
Clementine’s got it. With her new collection of songs on “Letting Go,” and her stunning
vocal delivery, Clementine has got all the makings of a star."

“She sings you to an unique atmosphere. An energy vibration of peace, order, enrichment, tranquility; an oasis in this chaotic world. An oasis where you can return in your own breath. A voice of light. ”

Folksinger Clementine (from the Netherlands) grew up as a Captain's daughter. When her father came home after his long travels, sometimes he would be away for a year, her mother's chansons were replaced for his Celtic/Irish music. Water, nature and freedom where fundamentals to her as she grew up sailing most of the time. The Irish music became her lifeline with her father being away at sea. When she sings Celtic or Irish folk music now, it feels like coming home. Nowadays she mixes the style naturally with Jazzy, Bluesy and even Chanson influences.
Clementine prefers singing in English, but made an exception for the dutch song 'Na de Hoos' (After the Storm) written by friend and top-writer Guus Westdorp. Originally written for the flood in New Orleans after Katrina. Raising thousands of dollars during a benefit concert for the victims.
She performed the song at the official national memorial for the Dutch flood of 1953 for the dutch president, politicians and survivors. This event was broadcasted by national media including primetime news, French and American TV from New Orleans.
In 2003 she released her first album for record label Coast to Coast. This album was embraced by national radio stations like Radio 2 and 5 and was named World Album.
She toured dutch theatres from small rooms of 80 seats up to concert halls of 750 seats and decided to study a few elemental courses online with Berklee to gain more understanding of songwriting and production.
She also loves to collaborate with other songwriters like Daithi Rua (worked with the Fureys/Clannad/Moya Brennan) and Guus Westdorp who wrote several top-1 hits for A-artists in the Netherlands.
For her new album: Letting Go, she has collaborated with top producer and singer/songwriter Wyatt Easterling: www.wyatteasterling.com
The next step will be performing in Italy with Alberto Napolitano, an excellent chanson singer, this July. This August a newly written dutch song will be recorded at the Folk Studio in Belgium.
