A versatile jazz vocalist and songwriter from The Netherlands, Henk Kraaijeveld brings together compelling music with strong poetic lyrics, storytelling and surprising improvisations.
Playful and light-footed elements alternate with intense and vivacious grooves and harmonies. Crossovers are made between old and new styles of jazz, including elements from classical and popular music. His music is influenced by instrumentalist such as @PatMetheny, @JohnColtrane, @AvishaiCohen, and singers like @Sting, @BobbyMcFerrin, @MarkMurphy and @KurtElling, just to name a few.

The jury praised his ‘relaxed performance in which he connects very well with the audience, blends his warm and beautiful voice perfectly with the sound of the band, while showing an impressive vocal range’.
Kraaijeveld graduated cum laude from Utrecht Conservatory in 2012 and studied at Manhattan School of Music, New York with renowned songwriter, composer and arranger @PeterEldridge.
