The Dutch folk singer Sophie Straat grew up in the Pijp in Amsterdam in the late 1990s and writes about societal and social abuses. Sophie Street experienced a lightning start to her career. She won an Edison in the category ‘Dutch’ for her debut EP ‘T is not my debt’, she had a festival summer hit with ‘Tweede Kamer’ together with Goldband and played with André Hazes in the Ziggo Dome. Her life songs have now collected more than 4.5 million streams. She played at festivals from Oerol to Best Kept Secret and from Wildeburg to Lowlands.

Sophie has turned out to be the undisputed queen of a new generation of protest singers in no time. New single ‘MANNEN’  is perhaps her most traditional sounding heartthrob to date; full of barrel organs, harmoniums, accordions, mellotron orchestra tapes and a real men’s choir. However, the underlying message is far from traditional. ‘MANNEN’ sings about patriarchy, and what is still wrong with it in 2022.
