They have been dear friends ever since and grew up playing and studying music together for most of their lives.
Together they founded the group, reinforced by bassist Raphael van der Schaft and singer Marin Pols.
All four of the musicians noticed there was a connection which allows them to compose and create a pleasant stage present.
Inspired by different influences, the group creates their own sound. The compositions of The Aligned are soulful pop with jazz influences.
