Jett Rebel - Formerly Know as Jelte Tuinstra - ‘s past year has been packed with highlights. The 23-year-old Dutch pop hero is already referred to as the younger version of Prince in Holland and his stardom is still rising. While studying piano and guitar at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, Jelte first played in bands such as Valerius and The Souldiers but decided in 2012 to put his talent to his own use by writing music under the Jett Rebel moniker. With great success we must add.
In only one year he won the ‘3FM Serious Talent Award 2014’, went from playing in crappy bars to the Heineken Music Hall and climbed the stage of more than 60 festival such as Pinkpop and Lowlands this summer.
During live shows top musicians surround Jett Rebel, but in the studio he plays, records and produces everything by himself. Drum, bass, keyboard or guitar, Jett plays it all.
‘Venus & Mars’, a compilation of his two first EP’s is characterized by catchy pop tunes that bring some soul and glam rock to the party, inspired by musicians such as Prince, Todd Rundgen, and The Beach Boys. End of this year his debut album will be released.
You can expect an energetic show at Kultuurkaffee that will highlight both the Jett and Rebel in his name. This young pop hero is ready to take over Belgium.
