HAITZE, inspired by skies and electricity. Lightning strikes can be seriously dangerous, but they are really beautiful to watch. So are HAITZE’s songs. The lyrics do have a serious emotion but the positive colored arrangements make the songs a pleasure to listen to. By listening to Sam Fender, James Bay, Bombay Bicycle Club and many more guitar influenced artists, HAITZE creates his own indie pop sound.
2018 - Haitze de Vries played as a guitarplayer and songwriter in several bands. After this period Haitze started writing and producing his own songs with just one microphone, lots of drumsamples and his beloved guitar. A few months later Haitze hooked up with keyboard player and producer Danny van Galen, who he knew from former bands they played in together. They started re-producing the songs Haitze made in his attic in Friesland.
2019 - The seed was planted in 2018 and Haitze kept writing, recording and producing in his home studio. When a song was finished, he sent it to Danny to add his flavour to it and mixing the song to its final form. The formula worked and a lot of songs were created in this small attic in the North of the Netherlands.
2020 - ‘HAITZE’ as an artist was born and his debut single is a fact. 'Fields Of Green' debuted on Dutch national radio. They also called him: ''maybe the Dutch Sam Fender''
HAITZE's debut EP 'Rectify' will be out on the 25th of June 2020
