Douwe Bob is a 23 years old singer, born in Amsterdam 1992. In the age of six he started to play the piano. Classical music and jazz and the 1950’s to 1970 is his passion. Douwe became a songwriter who is now focused on folk and country music. He has released two albums “Born In A Storm” and “Pass It On”. He also sang a duet with Anouk called “Hold Me” which can be found on the second album.
The song “Slow Down” is meant literally. As the society demands too much nowadays and there is too little time for too many things, and it is important to sit back and relax and to realize what is important in life. The song is uplifting and positive with a very nice chorus, a great memorable track. The song has been written in several countries like Portugal, Spain and Sweden.
With this entry, the Netherlands step into the country styled songs from Anouk and The Common Linnets. This is a strong Dutch entry which deserves to be in the Grand Final in Stockholm.

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.
