Description

Dark Americana, Folk Noir, Apocalyptic Blues for fans of Wovenhand, Mark Lanegan and Nick Cave.

Born in the early 80's in a small town in the south of The Netherlands, Pieter Hendriks was at a young age introduced to play instruments by his parents. Their large record collection, got him hooked on a wide range of music.

Pieter is a musical solitudinarian who has enough gumption to leave the commonplace behind and only take with him what can enrich his music and performance. There is a certain weight of tragedy in his music. His gravelly voice possesses sometimes an uneasy moodiness that reflects doom and despair. It immerses you in the dark side of life.

Then, amidst this darkness Soothsayer compositions shift to newfound hope. Warm and flowing, creating a longing, yet bold mood. Especially in a live performance, with the backing of a band who got their routine down, Pieter Hendriks songs come to peak dramatically.

For this self titled debut album, most lyrics and song ideas were written in an old caravan in the middle of the dark forest of the Eifel in Germany. Pieter isolated himself there without a phone and TV. Just loneliness and silence to focus on his music.
