by Christopher Smith

Dutch singing star Loren Nine has released her latest, beautiful track “I Do (Really Like You)” as the follow up to “Who Needs You?”, which was featured on international Spotify playlists including the legendary State of Jazz list , Acoustic Spring & several national coffee house playlists.

Loren started to play the piano at the age of two. And by the age of 9 she wrote her first song, in English. By the time she was 13 she also played guitar and signed her first publishing deal as a singer songwriter. She made her debut on Dutch national radio to be followed by Hollands biggest Talk show ‘De wereld draait door’. And, barely 16 she starred in the Bose Commercial which was broadcast in the Netherlands, Italy and the USA.

She has toured the UK as support for Caro Emerald. Playing 22 shows in October and November 2018. Her music played on BBC Radio and in the Dutch Movie ‘Singel 39’. When writing for herself, Loren writes songs with a melodramatic touch that get under your skin. Musically inspired by the 1950’s but a true millennial child. A creative soul is what best describes Loren Nine. A passion for music which is infectious to anyone who works with her.

Loren self-released her first single “Who Needs You?”. A melodramatic jazzy piano ballad. It reached over one million streams and was featured on State of Jazz, among others. The perfect moment for a new song to be released – “I Do (Really Like You)”, which tells a story about a girl falling in love and then finding the courage to ask him/her out. A love story that could end happily walking down the aisle. A midtempo piano ballad inspired by the fifties.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
