DAISY VAN LINGEN
If you ever happen to find yourself in Bourbon Street on a Sunday night, you might just have seen this singer in action. Joined by the musicians of Jaxswing and Gintronix, Daisy van Lingen forms Boombox, a group that celebrates not only nu-soul and other contemporary music, but honors her heroes of the nineties as well. Like most of us, she has a soft spot for this decade. What’s more, it was a time in which her family - and her mother in particular - played an important role in her musical upbringing. Still, it was only five years ago, when she made her debut in music, with the band Jaydee And Tha Funk. Before, she was a dancer for over thirteen years. This talent came in handy and soon proved to be an important part of her stage persona. Her natural charisma and talent to entertain set her apart from most musicians. Apart from the groups of her youth she has one musical hero: Stevie Wonder. This soul-genius has always been her main inspiration, and he will always be. But modern day musicians also play a part in her still developing carreer in music. Not long ago, she had the honor to meet Pharrell Williams. Giving her invaluable counsel, she’s now more determined than ever to grow as a musician. But she already made an impact on a national level, after she was one of the participants of The Voice Of Holland. She can still be heard all across the country, as she is now part of three bands. Apart from Boombox, she’s also in the bands Pick Up The Pieces and Jamission. With these groups, she travel all across The Netherlands. Daisy’s doing great, but there are still ambitions and goals to accomplish. She wants to not only develop her skills as a writer, but wants to be more involved in making new songs as well. Until then, she’s more than happy to be the leadsinger in some great bands. Curious? you can see Daisy and Boombox on our Sunday nights!
