I want it all, and I want it now. Greedy? You tell me. Lara Leaves gives me the opportunity to combine my passions of travelling, storytelling and singing. Leaving my comfort zone in search for adventure in music and in life. Wanna join?
Born and raised in a small Dutch town called Zevenaar. Primary school, high school, university and then I picked up my backpack to travel through South-East Asia. This trip opened my eyes. We only live one life, and we’d better make the best of it. Society expected me to settle down and get a ‘real’ job. But I’m not ready. So I’ll take all the time I need to explore this big planet we live on and my possibilities on it. Resulting; Lara Leaves.
It took me a while to ‘grow some balls’ and overcome my stage fright. Now it’s my time to shine and perform as a singer. My style is hard to describe, but it’s worth a shot: pop/rock, singer-songwriter, cabaret and a tiny bit of country (my guilty pleasure). Covers or my own songs, I’m up for anything. The most important thing in my music is to tell the story behind the music. And I’ll do that the Lara way.
