Ronn van Etten

Welcome to my website. Check things out, listen to some music, watch some video's.... Enjoy!!
Singer, musician, writer, composer, lyricists, guitarist. And bits of bass, drums, keys: I like it all and try to do my best.

Latest CD : 61- Etched in Memory, december 2019

MUSIC ..... making music from age of ten. Singing, playing guitar, piano, bass, bit of drums. Composing and writing lyrics. Recording and producing.

Ever since my last year in primary school I played in bands. First singing and playing guitar; later on I also played some organ/synthesizer in various bands.

In 1968 I wrote my first song and I never stopped writing since. Starting with only English lyrics at first, I started writing Dutch lyrics as well. Never stopped composing/writing since. So you can imagine there are a lot ( I mean: an awful lot!) of songs on the shelves! Later in life I started producing CD's and published some of these songs. (See: Discography) And there is more to come!

CD-Release Party great success

On 17th of november 2017 was the official release of the CD "Een Leven Lang Liedjes".

We had a very beautiful venue at Sociëteit Engels in The Hague.

A programme with several artists: Jerry Velberg (Acoustic troubadour), Julien Marnier (French Chansons) and MIROJO delivered some heart-warming and beautiful music throughout the evening.

Naturally there was this special moment where the official presentation took place. Martin Reitsma presented the 'first' CD to me, with the additional nice speech. On my turn I presented two CD's to Joy van Etten (photo's) and Vera Walberg (design and pre-press of the artwork).

Several songs of the CD were performed live; one songs I played solo on piano and vocals, one accompanied by the video-clip of the song, projected behind me and one song was performed with two acoustic guitars, together with Johan Korringa.

After the presentation MIROJO played four more songs of the CD.

It needs no words to say that there was a lot of appreciation and quite some CD's were sold that night.  25% of the sale-price will be donated to KIKA (Kinderen Kankervrij). That is translated : children cancer free. KIKA helps raising funds to finance more reseach on how to cure cancer with kids.

Also some seperate donations were made to KIKA.

It also goes without saying it was a very nice and warm evening with a lot of friends, acquaintances and interested people.

Together with sales results in the first weeks after the presentation a substantial donation will be made in december to KIKA.
