David Elias

David’s original work and contributions as a pioneer in the unsigned artist’s world of self-produced CD’s put him in front of the folk community nationally and worldwide at an early Internet age (1995). He achieved numerous and frequent #1 charting on various large musical web communities such as MP3.com, Besonic, SoundClick, Mixposure, and IndieHeart.com (currently #1 artist for most plays) as well as others.

Not restricting his exposure to online outlets (breaking ground with CD Baby in 1998 and eventually Amazon, iTunes and 50+ others) David also attracted the discriminate audiophile community as an innovator in hi-def 5.1 surround sound recordings (SACD’s “The Window”, 2003 and “Crossing”, 2005). This met with industry recognition for excellence, including the Brutus award from Positive Feedback Online for both SACD’s.

David’s songwriting achieved early recognition from the likes of Billboard magazine (honorable mention folk award in 1998) and hundreds of reviews and comments online from fans, musicians and industry professionals. He has been compared to many great songwriters ranging from Jim Croce to Nick Drake to Tom Petty to Dan Hicks to Arlo Guthrie to Bruce Cockburn, Paul Simon, Dylan, Neil Young, among numerous others. His productions continue to be recognized for their outstanding articulation and impact, both lyrically, musically and sonically. He has indeed been referred to as both musician’s musician and a songwriter’s songwriter.

It is somewhat challenging to try to characterize the scope and impact of David’s work either chronologically or in a complete fashion. Working as an independent artist for 15 years, he has been part of the dawn of many new discoveries in music and DIY approaches to sustaining art. Performing in the vicinity of 1000 shows, give or take, since 1994 and teaming up with dozens of different casts of characters from the deep roots of the Irish and Scottish to the quietude or rants of Americana and folk to the eclectic, bluegrass, rock and pop realms of those such as Jane Siberry (Issa), Sally Van Meter, and Roger Powell, David has spun many homegrown musical tales for the environment, local education and businesses, benefits galore, art shows, fairs and festivals, warehouses and lofts, beach parties, pubs and eateries, music halls and local cafes not to mention his own 8 released recordings and endless other collaborations. Perhaps it is summarized best as one fan online wrote: “…music for the heart and soul”.

Kobra Ensemble

The Kobra ensemble is composed of Ingrid Doude van Troostwijk, Sterre Konijn, Lea Klarenbeek, Lonneke Kegels, Pitou Nicolaes and Saskia Voorbach. Since their founding in 2010 they have developed a style of their own, characterised by an all-round musicality and a lively stage performance. With a mix of early and contemporary classical music, folk music, and close harmony, a mix of humor and dead-serious beauty, Kobra blows the cobwebs off the chamber music.

The singers met each other in the Dutch National Children’s and Youth Choir. With their foundations  in classical music, they share a huge musical curiosity. This is audible in the various musical and singing styles  that come across during their performances. Kobra searches constantly for new audiences by choosing various stages, events and festivals. Then again they are also no stranger to the major Dutch stages like Het Concertgebouw, the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ and De Doelen. Besides that, the ensemble has performed several times in programmes like Vrije Geluiden and NTR Podium on Television.

Kobra engages wholeheartedly in cooperation with other forms of art; the singers have worked with various costume designers, artists, video performers, instrumentalists, composers and arrangers. They also experiment with theatre in their live performances. They continue to surprise audiences and themselves alike.
