Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Multi-talented Dutch artist Herman Van Veen released his first album in 1968, the start of a long, successful career as a musician. He is also known as a successful stage performer, actor and author. His latest release Vallen of Springen serves as his 182nd album. He cooperated with multiple songwriters and composers for the 14-track collection including Herman de Coninck, Bart Moeyaert, Judith Herzberg, Ramsey Nasr, Edith Leerkes and Marnix Dorrestein. It was produced by the same team (Marnix Dorrestein, Jurriaan JJ Sielcken and Edith Leerkes) as his last album Kersvers. In 2016, he received the BUMA Lennaert Nijgh Prijs, an award for best songwriter. The jury stated: "Herman sings in surprisingly accessible language of subjects that many people prefer to avoid." This is something that really characterizes him as lyricist. The ability to transform a difficult subject into an apparently simple, yet beautiful song. This is also something that is displayed on his latest release, with songs like "Vrijheid" and "Breaking News."
