‘GROWTH’ features a collection of personal songs about growing older, longing to travel and choosing who you want to be in life. Challenging himself to explore unknown territories with his guitar and writing songs along the way has been the main drive behind the songs and has greatly influenced the sound. The album received several loving press reviews and single 'Breathe' was featured in an advertising campaign for JEEP.

. Bart dreams to take his music abroad and play for an international audience. In 2016, this became a reality when Bart was asked to perform his songs at the New York Fashion Week show of Amsterdam brand Scotch & Soda.
For live performances, Bart teams up with several talented musicians and friends. A 5-piece band now accompanies Bart on stage to translate the moody arrangements into an energetic live set.
