Maaike den Dunnen
After a highly acclaimed debut "Arrival", dutch singer-composer Maaike den Dunnen launches her new album "Inner Space" with an international release tour starting October 19th. Ms. den Dunnen has recruited a renowned international team to take on her musical vision. NYC singer-pianist and Grammy Nominee Dena DeRose plays piano and adds colourful touches on Fender Rhodes and synth. The mixing and mastering is done by Stefano Amerio, Grammy nominated engineer for the ECM label. Her original approach has already opened many doors for the curly haired, energetic and seemingly always smiling singer. She was a finalist in the European Jazz Competition, a member of the European Jazz Orchestra and a winner of two awards from Downbeat Magazine for "Outstanding Performance", she played the North Sea Jazzfestival and the Ubud Village Jazz Festival, to name a few.
