Under the Surface was formed by drummer Joost Lijbaart (known as a member of Yuri Honing’s bands), young vocalist Sanne Rambags (winner of the Conservatorium Talent Award 2017) and guitarist Bram Stadhouders (who previously collaborated with Netherlands Chamber Choir, Jim Black and Sidsel Endresen). They have developed what they consider to be a ‘universal language’, with their exceptional ensemble playing.
