Harber Rambam out now!
Is it indie pop, is it Britpop, is it rock music? The more difficult to categorize, the better, Louis thinks. Over the past 2 years he recorded his debut album Harber Rambam together with musician friends. Eleven songs with different atmospheres but nevertheless strong as a whole. Carried by the Bowie-like voice of Maurice van de Geest, it has become a record to let you fully absorb in one go.
Louis Hellendoorn has been a bass player for almost 40 years and has played in many unknown bands. However, Harber Rambam did not become a bassguitar record. Louis sees himself primarily as a songwriter. Songs with a head and a tail and an easy-to-hear song melody. “There is a good chance that you will unconsciously hum such a song the next day. If that brightens up your day, my mission will be successful.”
Later this year, when the corona measures are gone, LOUISON will enter the rehearsal room. “The songs deserve a podium. It would be fantastic to be able to perform them live. ”
Many thanks to: Maurice (lead vocals), Roger (guitars), Hans (drums), Ad (additional guitar on 'Winner's Curse' & 'Martin Beck'), Ruud (acoustic guitar on 'Jerry'), Lisette (backing vocals), Rene (keys), Ella (spoken poem on 'Longer Land') & Ria (cover photo).

Awaiting the album 'Harber Rambam' the single 'Martin Beck' has been released today. Nice acoustic version on which Maurice's voice excels. Also listen to B-side 'Burning'.

Soon we'll have a little appetizer, ahead of the release of Harber Rambam!
Feb 22, 2021
We all crave the warmth of midsummer. We want to relax on the soft grass of the city parks. Pinched eyes in the bright light. Stare at each other until it hurts. Exchange stories of the past winter, accompanied by quiet Sunday tunes from the bluetooth speaker. Birds and summer sun. Perhaps some will quote the master of comedy, poems and drama. To sing or not to sing.
It has not quite come to that, the days are still short. Then we just have to pretend. Playing a game can’t hurt. Louison's The Shakespeare Play debut single plays the role of trailblazer for the main program and can be heard on all streaming services such as Spotify. Their debut album, Harber Rambam, will be released in April. Until then we can sing along with this single. "Now is the time," after all, everything can be different tomorrow.
Stay tuned, stay safe & make sure to "singsingalong". Yeah!
