Raoul & The Wisemen

What a year it was, going from lockdown to lockdown. We took the time to write new music and right now we’re preparing for recording sessions in the studio together with wonderful producers David Hoogerheide and Iwen Legro. New music is expected in June 2022, we’ll keep you updated! Do you wanna listen to our music? Check out our first EP on Spotify or watch the acoustic gigs we did in the summer!


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 us and how we communicate. Swinging between heart and mind. Raoul & the Wisemen stand for an open mind, curiosity and not giving up. 

During a gig you’ll hear stories about being on the road, and meeting the Slovenian prime minister…😄  Before Corona, they kicked off with their first single ‘Conversation’, playing 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 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. In between lockdowns R&theWM played in duo set up with vocals and guitar. Their Live Summer Sessions tour in gardens, living rooms and roof tops was a success.

In the coming period they will continue to play in this mobile and accessible set up. With new music coming up in 2022 and a living room tour as well Raoul & the Wisemen is preparing for a new musical year!

Raoul & the Wisemen

We play our set originals in a small band set up. Guitarist and vocalist with some keys, and maybe…a loop station!

Raoul & the Wisemen

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!
