How do you become one of the most talked-about talents without ever releasing a single? It starts with being a support act for big names like Portland, Meskerem Mees, Mauro Pawlowski, Admiral Freebee, and The Bony King of Nowhere. It helps to perform on some of Belgium’s biggest stages like OLT Rivierenhof, Het Depot, Ancienne Belgique, and De Muziekgieterij. And it helps to have Caspar Auwerkerken’s captivating voice.

But finally, in 2022, Auwerkerken’s releasing his debut single, “Hyacinth”. The simple yet intimate guitar strumming and atmospheric background harmony perfectly pull his voice to the forefront. Questions like, “Where can we be free when we’re trapped in this world,” feel like he’s pulling you into a conversation.

Every element of this release brims with reserved power. From the minimalist arrangement to the dreamy timbre of the chords, Auwerkerken offers a glimpse at melancholy while teasing far greater depths to come.
