Raoul & the Wisemen are the Indie/alternative pop band behind singer & songwriter Raoul Wijsma (NL). A romantic and bright sound with songs focusing on melody and lyrics combined with the warm and soaring voice of Raoul. The different influences in both their songs and stage presence merge together into the firm ‘new romantic’ indie pop of Raoul & the Wisemen. “In this fast world we have trouble standing still. By using my background and experiences in my songs, I try to make a connection with people. So, we can let go, stop thinking and start feeling a bit more instead”. Comparable to acts like Keane, Two Door Cinema Club and Bon Iver, Raoul & the Wisemen adds a wonky (pop) performance.
After the release of their first single ‘Conversation’ in summer 2019 Raoul and his band played on several festivals in both the Netherlands and Slovenia. Conversation caught the attention of NPO Radio 5 show ‘Club de Max’ where the band was invited as a guest. Airplay of their single followed both on Radio 5 and online. The release of their second single and EP release are expected in March this year.
