Amsterdam based songstress Pieternel makes Americana music, mixing classic country music with modern pop and folk elements. With her soothing yet powerful voice she shares stories of her inner world and paints intimate portraits of others. Her music parallels that of artists like Brandi Carlile, First Aid Kit and Chris Stapleton. She came to the scene with the EP All Night Cafe in 2018, followed by her debut full length album Roosevelt Island – a record she created and released independently on her own label and presented in a sold-out Bitterzoet. Before recording this album she made frequent songwriting-trips to NYC and Nashville and fell in love with their vibrant music scene. No wonder she recorded the album in Nashville, Tennessee. The album was produced by Grammy award winner producer Femke Weidema and Gouden Kalf winner Helge Slikker. The album caught the attention of multiple international playlists and Dutch radio stations. Pieternel played a release tour with her band and solo as part of the program “Nashville comes to Holland”. Together with fellow Dutch Nashville girl Judy Blank she teamed up for a clubtour. She played a few shows in the US and was the only foreign act playing for the Brooklyn Americana Festival. Pieternel has opened for artists such as Brandy Clark, Levi Hummon, Angeleena Presley and Helge and played shows in the Netherlands and the USA.
