Haarlem rock/punk: Yorick van Noorden, The Hype
Yorick van Noorden is known from the band The Hype, exhibiting many times on radio, TV and festivals. After the band broke up Yorick started another music experience with Louis Inghels. White Nose made a new single, Had enough, a song which is definitely different from Yorick’s previous ones. The single sets the tone with punk sounds and socially critical lyrics.
Jazz and blues: Myriam West, From now on
The singer-songwriter from Haarlem, Myriam West, found inspiration for her new album, From now on, in THE city of jazz and blues: New Orleans. Once back in Holland she started writing the collection of songs strongly filled with the New Orleans experience and feeling. A delightful collection to listen to. Quality time to relax.

The fivesome from Haarlem have released their fourth album Unchained, recorded at Split Second Sound Studio of Jochem Jacobs (ex-guitarist of the Dutch metal sensation Textures). The album contains twelve songs with strong lyrics, raw elements of metal and sensual melodic vocals.
