New Memphis is an acoustic country band from The Netherlands. The band was formed in the spring of 2016 by singer/songwriter/guitarist Wouter Broekman.
After a short regional solo career he asked guitarist and singer Gertjan Scheffer to join him. Over time, the two expanded their musical arsenal with bass, harp and percussion to bring a more varied sound while remaining a two-man band.
The band writes and performs original songs in English, with obvious influences from the likes of Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson. A unique and contemporary mix of country, Americana, folk and pop with a distinct sound and style. When performing live they supplement their material with various covers.
Since 2016 the duo has shared the stage with numerous Dutch artists but also Euro Americana #1 artist Douglas Greer (USA), singer/songwriter Dick LeMasters (USA), Dave Goodman Band (USA/GER) and in 2017 Jan Akkerman and Bert Heerink. Singles by New Memphis have been featured on three compilation albums of the Dutch Country Music Association.
In 2017, the duo’s single “101 In The Shade” has been featured in US Newspaper “South Coast Today”. This song will be featured on the band’s self-written, -recorded, -produced and released debut album “A Life In Song”, to be available in the summer of 2018.
