For years now, Sven Hammond is one that can’t be missed in the national and international live-circuit, with streaming, fulminating, spitting, squeaking, creaking, but most of all intoxicating, Hammond orgel-sound from the one and only Sven Figee as constant factor. A band that always rides it’s own roads, and apart from trends and conventions keeps renew and develop itself.
She was just 14 years old, when the American label Verve signed her. In 2007, Kim Hoorweg released her first album. This was also the year that she played North Sea Jazz and shared the stage of the HMH with our own Trijntje Oosterhuis & The Metropole Orchestra. This year she released her first album solely, called Untouchable. On this album we can also enjoy Dutch jazzlegends Anton Goudsmit, Niels Broos, Glenn Gaddum Jr. and Joost Kroon.
The raw mix of rock, soul and blues provided to you by Sven Hammond, mixed with the warm voice of Kim Hoorweg: a combination one could only dream of to play the world wide hits of Amy Winehouse in a unique, yet recognizable way.
