Raoul & The Wisemen

Welcome! It has been a strange few months after the cancelation of our tour to Slovenia due to the natural disaster there in August. A terrible situation in the country, and for us a lot of preparations that didn’t lead to the tour we’d planned. We were already in the South of Germany and had to turn around. Afterwards I worked on a song, but we didn’t feel like releasing it and then the months went by.

First I thought this song was only about Slovenia. Looking at what happens in the world and also in the Netherlands right now, it applies to much more I think. Now it feels like the moment for a song. We believe music connects. This is ‘Darker Stories‘ (click on the link to hear the song).

BIO

Raoul & the Wisemen is a band that plays a melodical brew of pop and alternative music that makes you dream, melancholic and hopeful at the same time. It might remind you of Keane-like melodies, the warmth and richness of HEAVN and voices from the 80’ies like Marian Gold (Alphaville), George Michael and even the sweetness of Michael Bublé. Their productions flirt with both acoustic and electronical elements, their songs are like short stories. Think of purple neon lights over the city, warm summer nights in the forest or howling storms in your mind. In their own words: we bring you soft power story pop. Anouncing their gig in the Amsterdam Amstelpark the Dutch newspaper Het Parool mentioned that their ‘melodical pop with an electronical touch will, as we expect, make the park blossom’.

Dutch radio station NPO Radio 5 invited the band as a guest artist because of their single ‘Conversation’. Following songs received attention in Dutch media (Parool, Noord-Hollands Dagblad, Shot of Culture, ‘Toute Fabienne’/GoodLifeRadio, Radio Aalsmeer, RTV Noord-Holland and Pinguin Radio). The band played on festivals like the Come out and Play Festival, Festival Bakkum Vertelt, Haven Festival and venues like Podium de Groene Zwaan, Theater Mascini and the Amstelpark Concerten. Next to that, Raoul & the Wisemen has a special relationship with Slovenia. They regularly played at festivals and summer events in the Eastern European country and were featured on Slovene radio and television (RTV Slovenija, Radio Maxi, ALTR Radio).

This fall, their song Darker Stories will be released online. An addition to the Povodni Moz tour that didn’t happen (see our socials). It’s also a story about a bit of hope in a changing world. This song is our present in december. If you like it, please follow us and donate an amount to the Red Cross  to help people that are in distress because of emergencies, conflicts and disasters.
