On the coast where indie/folk and americana meet, somewhere in the love area between Ben Howard, Wilco and Kurt Vile, Aidan & the Wild can be found – the alias under which musical jack-of-all-trades Diederik van den Brandt brings forth a fresh sound in the Dutch folk/americana scene. Born with the guitar in his lap and armed with a bag full of licks and tricks he procures a timeless sound which makes you wonder how it would have sounded if the heydays of the Laurel Canyon had taken place 50 years later.
With over a million Spotify streams and hundreds of shows behind him the 28-year old songwriter is well on his way to become a household name. The self-produced debut album “Revelation Never Came” was awarded with high praise and paved the way for a promising sequel. What to expect? A mix of enchanting atmospheres, rousing rhythms and bewildering melodies, often backed up by his seasoned band, delivered with an honest voice and great dedication to the art of songwriting.
