Trijntje Oosterhuis is a singer whose music touches upon jazz, soul and pop. As a teenager she formed a group called Total Touch.
Their self-titled debut album became the bestselling debut by a Dutch band. Trijntje was asked as a guest vocalist by artists like Herbie Hancock, Toots Thielemans, Lionel Richie, Al Jarreau, and many more. Her first solo album truly established her as a solo artist. Shortly after she was signed to Blue Note to release her first jazz album (Strange Fruit), on which she explored the works of Gershwin and Holiday. The album became one of the bestselling Blue Note albums worldwide that year. This success led to a collaboration with Burt Bacharach. In 2004 she recorded his evergreens for the album The Look of Love (together with Vince Mendoza, Patrick Williams and Al Schmitt). The album turned multiplatinum and a year later the team got together again and recorded a second album (Who'll Speak For Love). The title song was a new song written by Burt Bacharach and Tim Rice. In the following years Trijntje did many tours, released several successful albums, was a judge in The Voice Of Holland, participated in the Eurovision Songfestival, was one the initiators of Ladies Of Soul and kept developing herself as an artist and vocalist. In May 2019 she will release her new album ‘Dit Is Voor Mij’ with original songs in Dutch. Produced by Jett Rebel and co-written with people like: Diggy Dex, Freddy Tratlehner, Han Kooreneef, Glen Faria and Linde Schöne.
