BIO

The facts
Robert van de Leensel (March 21st 1971) was born and raised in a small town in the south of the Netherlands. As a young kid his main interests were soccer and playing the drums. Little has changed over time, except that many more flavours were added: science, sports, music, writing, spirituality, traveling, teaching, summer camps, charity projects and many more. After his Master degree in Econometrics at Tilburg University and a PhD degree at the University of Maastricht he traveled the world for over two years. It is safe to say he was deeply infected by the traveling bug and in order to survive needs to see more and more of this beautiful planet we live on.

Songwriting
At the age of 14 he wrote his first song and many more have been added since. His songs are inspired by the many things that happen in live and things he experienced while traveling the world. He grew up listening to Pop and Rock, and this is definitely a big part of his own style of playing and writing. But his interests and songs cover many other areas as well, such as naked singersongwriter tunes, and styles such as country, blues, funk, jazz, dance, Cuban, Brasilian. Basically, if is has melody and it grooves, he is into it and will write you a song.
