New album Douwe Bob is rougher
The new album by Douwe Bob need to be a lot rougher. “I did sense something a little different,” says the singer to NU.nl.
“It is somewhat heavier, with more rock,” he explains. “I’m going to enjoy rocking out on the stage.” The 23-year-old Douwe Bob brought in may, his third album, Fool Bar. When the new cd will be released and if the singer returned to the country to work on new material, is still not clear.
Tuesday, it was announced that Douwe Bob is nominated for an MTV EMA for Best Dutch Act. He is up against, among others, Ronnie Flex, and Brotherly. “This is very special for me,” says the singer. “MTV is really a name. Our home was always MTV. Not only for the music, but also for series such as Beavis and Butt-head.”
Or he has a good chance on the price dare Douwe Bob not to predict. “I did previously participate in a competition that I said that I wanted to win, and then I was eleventh”, is he referring to laughing all the way to the Eurovision song Contest. “So hey.”
The singer says it “really cool” to find that he is in the same row as Ronnie Flex, Brotherly, Sam Feldt and Julian Jordan. “I have still the idea that my music is in a niche, but time and time again continues to muziekliefhebbend the Netherlands prove the opposite. Kids of today, they rock just as hard on country and rock’n’ roll, as on Drink & Drugs. That is a huge compliment.”
The EMA’s will be on november 6, issued in the Ahoy in Rotterdam. On the occasion of the event keeps Douwe Bob three days before, a Fool Bar in Rotterdam, where he was the public to get familiar with artists that he himself will.
Where the singer currently has, is the opening of his own Fool Bar in Amsterdam, early next week. “I come from the hospitality industry and lacked the people to operate and behind the bar. That I can now again one or two times per week going to do.”
The bar must be the feeling of the fifties and sixties to breathe and get a jukebox. “You can go there for a burger, a steak and a vegahap and we serve American beers,” says Douwe Bob. The Fool Bar seven days a week, “from early in the morning until late in the evening”.
