So yeah, I’m Sanne. I’m Dutch and I’m tiny. I sing, write songs, wonder, wander and work as a vocal coach, based in Rotterdam. I also love to leave this beautiful city to be in nature, write my diary, ask questions, read, learn and be in a perpetual state of curiousness and yearning.
Oh and Monster is my last name, for real.
When I was fifteen years old, I found comfort in listening to the songs of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt (and many others) and was able to forget about my own little world for a while. They sang about life, love, pain and stuff that I couldn’t even entirely understand, but it inspired me to start writing and singing my own song.
And right now, that’s what I do, everyday. Collecting thoughts, questions, stories, meet people, see places and put it into words and music.
In the spring of 2015 I released my first album Mirage (listen or buy). The songs for this record came to life in a little cabin between the fields and farms in Drenthe, where they seemed to fall out of the sky. I was just so lucky to be the fist to play them.
