It's only a matter of time for Catching Currents to become a succes. It would be most deserved.
"Een solodebuut van verpletterende rijpheid."
**** Lust for Life
A solo debut of overwhelming ripeness.
"Als Nick Drake een bevallige jonge vrouw was geweest die anno nu had geleefd, had ze een plaat gemaakt zoals Fridolijn dat nu heeft gedaan."

Had Nick Drake been a graceful young lady,
living this day in age, this is the album she would have made.
“Had Nick Drake been a graceful young woman living this day in age, this is the album she would have made.” With this enchanting quote Jazzism magazine gave Fridolijn's solo debut ‘Catching Currents’ a glorious spot in their year’s top 10 list.
Fridolijn’s music is characterised by a distinguished, evocative style which can be described as dreamy folktronica. With Merry Go Round Fridolijn (pronounce Free-Doe-Line) makes her return, after releasing albums with her band Finn Silver, and her 2015 solo debut Catching Currents.
Fridolijn first appeared on the scene in 2011 with the release of 'Crossing the Rubicon', by her band Finn Silver. A self-released jazz, pop and hiphop-influenced debut, which reached top chart positions in Holland and Japan. It brought Fridolijn & her band to international Festivals like North Sea Jazz Festival, Injazz and Über Jazz, and to the stages of Billboard Live Tokyo, het Concertgebouw Amsterdam and The Tabernacle in Londen. Itunes hauled her 'New Jazz Artist of the Year'.
Fridolijn was a member of Singer/Songwriter supergroup 'Ladies of the Lowlands', and recorded and performed internationally with British jazzband/MOBO winners Kairos 4tet, pianist Gideon van Gelder (Jose James), Cinematic Orchestra guitaritst Stuart McCallum (UK) and became host of the monthly vocal session at Amsterdam’s North Sea Jazzclub.
With a combined 2 million streams on Spotify, international shows on stages like Billboard Live Tokyo, The Tabernacle London, and Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and press coverage on blogs like Written in Music and NoDepression Fridolijn has steadily been making a name for herself. Merry Go Round shows us the artist took the time needed for refining her sound, making curious for what is yet to come.
