There are a great many female vocalists. And then there is Anouk, all in a class of her own. When she sings, her voice rises from the depths of her being and impacts on the listeners, touching them profoundly. For nearly twenty years Dutch listeners have been enthralled by this forthright woman who charts her own course, guided by her musical intuition.
Between 1997 and 2014, Anouk released nine studio albums, yielding scores of hits. Although initially the free-spirited singer-songwriter was mainly known for her explosive rock songs such as "Nobody's Wife" and "R U Kiddin' Me," she's also offered tender and fragile songs such as "Lost" and "Michel." Later albums have also contained experiments in soul, funk and hip-hop but all these different elements are sustained by her unique powerhouse of a voice. Anouk's voice can purr, stir and roar and cover the broadest emotional spectrum from the very tender to the fiercest abandon. Add to this her often painfully honest song lyrics and it becomes clear why she always strikes such a deep chord in her fans who share in her emotional vision.
Urban Solitude, the follow-up album to Anouk's breakout debut 1997 debut Together Alone. was originally released in 1999. It yielded the singles "R U Kiddin' Me," "The Dark" and "Michel" and peaked at number 1 on the Dutch Album Top 100 chart. The album has been subsequently certified platinum in the Netherlands.
