Raoul & The Wisemen

Welcome! After two years of waiting we’re finally playing again. Very happy we played with singer-songwriter NinaLynn in our double bill ‘Team Up Tour’ and doing our Back on track gigs visiting Theater Mascini, de Muziektuin and some other cool locations. Soon our new single ‘It’s an Illusion’ will come out!

Online release date single: August 19th 2022

Single presentation: September 3rd 2022

Location: de Workship @ de Ceuvel (Korte Papaverweg 8, Amsterdam)

Will we see you there?


Raoul & the Wisemen is a Dutch singer-songwriter with live band from the East of Amsterdam. Their sound is warm and clear, their songs melodical and romantic. Do you know Keane, Ásgeir HAEVN and Hozier? You might like R&thWM too! Though they’re based in Amsterdam, they love traveling and meeting new people.

They question and investigate: thoughts, the world around them and how people communicate. Swinging between heart and mind. Raoul & the Wisemen stand for an open mind, curiosity and not giving up.

With their first single ‘Conversation’ they played on festivals and events in both the Netherlands and Slovenia. The track caught the attention of national NPO Radio 5 show ‘Club de Max’ where Raoul & the Wisemen were invited as a guest. Airplay of their single followed both on Radio 5 and online. The following singles ‘Dream’ and ‘Time’ were released during the corona lockdowns. Unable to play live, their music found its way online via playlists and gained attention on blogs like My Daily Shot of Culture, (local) radio and interviews in Dutch newspapers. 

Their new track ‘It’s an Illusion’ was written together with Swedish songwriter/producer/guitarist Martin Carlsson (Petra Marklund) and produced by Iwen Legro (Tape Toy) and David Hoogerheide (Jeangu Macrooy, Kovacs). ‘It’s an Illusion’ is an ode to doubt. An electronic pop song with an ongoing synth pattern reflecting on a changing world and your own actions.

We take it a step further and set up an exclusive concept of our band and music. For example, a night with us and our musical friends, or the story behind…more suitable for listening to our music and hearing about the adventures on the road!
