Eelke – Leech

Eelke (pronounced as โ€˜ail-kuhโ€™) the first name of Dutch singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist Eelke Ankersmit. He recorded his new music with Stijn van Rijsbergen, Johan Huttinga, Wouter Verschoor and Joost le Feber. Donโ€™t bother trying to pronounce those names ๐Ÿ˜‰.

After graduating with distinction from the Amsterdam academy of music, Eelke started writing and releasing songs. National radio picked them up nicely. His upcoming EP Mirror is a great leap forward. First single Leech is a good example of the way he combines indie-rock with vulnerability.

The Smiths, Ryan Adams and The Cure are some of his influences, but particularly fans of Radiohead circa the mid-โ€˜90s will be delighted.
