About Rowy

Although my father was a music teacher, I did not start learning to play an instrument until I was sixteen. At eighteen, I completed a concerto for strings. At nineteen, I was accepted at the Brabant Conservatory of Music.

Initially I wrote experimental music, but a few years after completing my studies I returned to my roots. Since then, I have been writing lighthearted music with a touch of melancholy.

I was born and raised (and hope to die) in the northern part of the former Duchy of Brabant in Northwest Europe, now a province of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. My family has lived here since the 13th century. I have a son and a daughter.

Besides writing music, I like to cycle through the country (video).
