The Dutch entry “Walk along” has been co-written by Anouk, who has been singing for the Netherlands in 2013 and made a 9th place. “Walk Along” is a fresh and optimistic song, probably not exactly the style of music Trijntje normally sings. The chorus has a special hook which will stay in people’s memory.
The lucky candidate who has the honour to step in the footsteps of Anouk and The Common Linnets is the 42-years old singer Trijntje Oosterhuis. Trijntje’s is a Dutch jazz and pop singer, who is born in Amsterdam. She comes from a very music orientated family, her mother is a violinist. With her brother Tjeerd she founded the band Total Touch. They toured around the world and released two successful albums, the last one reached platinum status. Since 2001 Trijntje is working on her solo career. Her music style can be described as smooth jazz with dreamy melodies and approach. Trijntje has already been singing with popular singers like Lionel Richie, Bobbie McFerrin and Ronan Keating and she is having a record contract with EMI since 2001. Lately she has been a coach in the The Voice of Holland show.

The chorus has a special hook which will stay in people’s memory. Nevertheless this kind of music has been send a couple of times e.g. “One Good Reason” by Marlayne in 1999 (8th place) and “One More Night” by Esther Hart in 2003 (13th place). Probably this song is not as strong as Anouk’s own song two years ago. Furthermore the Netherlands will perform in the first half of the first Semi Final, which might be a tough position to succeed.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
