About Me
I'm a singer/songwriter from Amsterdam. I play the piano and sometimes a bit of guitar, ukulele, kazoo or toy piano. If you'd like to know more about me and my music, read the biography below:

Biography:

When singer/songwriter Merel Hutten (1979) gets on stage, she immediately captivates you with her charming appearance. When she starts playing and singing, her music gives you goosebumps and touches your soul. Merel easily combines down-to-earth observations and cheerful anecdotes with stilled moments. As she sits behind her piano, she blends influences from jazz, blues and classical music into a scenery of sound in which she tells her stories.

Merel Hutten started performing as a singer/songwriter in 2005. After her third performance ever she got offered a complete album recording by theatre Schouwburg Amstelveen. Her debut album "Wonderbras & Petticoats (2006) was well received and in the years to follow, Merel performed regularly at venues in the Netherlands, the UK and Belgium. She played at the Amsterdam Uitmarkt, at Paradiso and Jazz & Sail Bergen, and she opened for Ellen ten Damme. In December 2007, Merel won "Hou je kop Luisterpop" (Shut up and listen-pop) and was a finalist in the Mooie Noten competition for Singer/songwriters. In that same year, her music was used in a national radio commercial for Bagels & Beans.

Last summer, Merel started with the recordings for her second album "Take a walk". Her crystal-clear voice and jazzy piano playing are still the main ingredients, but on this second album there are also strings, drums, brass instruments and more. "For this album I wanted to take things a step further. With many of my songs I can hear elaborate arrangements in my head. It was great to actually carry them out and record them", says Merel.

Merel's music is an enchanting and original mixture of jazz, pop and classical music. With her catchy tunes she seeks out the adventure and doesn't shy away from elaborate instrumental solos. Merel's music reminisces of singer/songwriters like Rufus Wainwright, Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Randy Newman. Her lyrics are straightforward and yet poetic. Merel sings about her view of the world, herself and others, about dreams and disillusions, getting older and of course about love. "Take a walk" is an album about the beauty and the ugliness of the world......with a wink and a smile.
