What a great start of 2024! The word is out! Tonight, at Festival Eurosonic Noorderslag, they announced that I am one of the 15 musical acts, chosen by the jury, to compete in the ‘Mentos Grote Prijs Van Nederland’! A Dutch music competition for young, upcoming artists to support them in their music career.
And I am sooo thrilled!!! I’m about to record some exciting things in Wisseloord Studios and I’m (only with your support though) heading for the finals in Tivoli Vredenburg!

"The wait is over, today is the day.
My EP ‘while the wind howls’ is out now everywhere. She is yours.
Four years have passed since writing the first melody of this body of music I’m releasing today. I can tell you that it is weird. To release songs into the world that I’ve been keeping close to my heart for so long. But I am so so so grateful and proud I can now finally share this album with you. She carries so much weight and lightness at the same time, that it’s really a release for me to set her free, see her fly.
“while the wind howls” is my ode to vulnerability, to strength, to holding on while letting go. She is my celebration of grief, my soldier of love. She is my honesty and my truth, and I’m so proud of myself I’m finally starting to embrace that."

love remains _out now

love remains _out now

"This is a song that became my anthem, my remedy, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you now.
Love remains.
‘Love remains’ describes the feeling of deep, true love in the midst of pain, grief and resentment. For months, I have been feeling sad, angry and anxious in a way I’ve never experienced before. Writing this song really felt like the light at the end of the tunnel. It gave me courage and strength to look beyond the pain.
And in that same way it is also a reminder for myself to focus on the things that matter in life. The things I want to add to this world, as an artist, as a lover, as a daughter, as a friend. I really hope you find comfort in this song too." Listen now

best movie award

best movie award

Moffenmeid (La Tondue) by Raymon Hilkman has been awarded BEST MOVIE at the ‘International festival du film d’histoire’ in Montreal, Canada!!
The jury described Moffenmeid this way.
"Served by the finesse of the actors’ play as well as by a subtle soundtrack, the film shifts the tension of this tragic moment in history by questioning the tearing of a mother and her daughter, humiliated by the inhabitants of the neighborhood for having linked up with a German soldier during the Second World War. For the originality of its point of view, as well as for its sobriety and the efficiency of silences, the award for best short film is awarded to La Tondue (Moffenmeid) by Raymon Hilkman (Netherlands)"
