Stating contemporaries James Blake, BANKS and Bon Iver, as well as iconic songwriters Paul Simon and Van Morrison as influences, HEBE employs a wide range of tones in order to find the balance between the melancholy and power in her tracks.
“In my music I try to connect different facets of my personality. I can be open, but also introvert; I know what I want, but I can also suffocate in doubt. I am looking, as everyone else I believe, for balance and music is my instrument to do so.”
HEBE’s music gained attention by premiering through The 405, Noisey (Vice) and Keep it Underground and lead her to play at Dutch TV show Vrije Geluiden, Radio2, Tivoli Vredenburg, Patronaat and Theatre Festival De Parade. After being invited twice to perform solo in London at Metropolis Studios in 2017 and Camden Assembly 2018, HEBE returned for two UK tours and a Germany tour with her band.
