My Work


My Work

Here you will find most of my projects, bands, current and past. Either as a composer, sideman, leader, session musician, performer or arranger.

Music is the most important thing in my life. This is why I make sure I always give my best for all my projects. I just love it when something is well done, well executed. As long as something sounds good then I will like it. Could be any kind of styles, latin, jazz, rock, metal, etc. I have no preferences. I guess you will notice this by checking my work. Take a look

Tim Dawn

An indie pop band based in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

You may have heard our first single “She”, which got the attention of many and gave us a lot of amazing opportunities. We are proud to say that we had the pleasure of playing in venues like Sugarfactory, EKKO and Supermarkt, and festivals like Parkpop, Horizontoer and THISSFest, where we won the Song of the Year Award.

We finally released our first 5-song EP on 9 March 2016, recorded and       mixed by renowned producer/mix engineer Huub Reijnders. We are very excited about this EP, which is full of radio-friendly indie pop songs in the vein of e.g. James Bay

Story of your life

My first Dutch band!

Back in 2008 when I just arrived to The Netherlands and I still had a tanned skin.

Metal was a big part of my childhood and teenager years. I always wanted to have a band where we will play loud  angry music, so we did.  It was so much fun to play with this guys!

Unfortunately this project stopped because we were never able to find a good singer... Maybe we were too picky...

Band members:

Dave de la Reza - Guitar

Paolo Erriu - Electric bass

Oliver - Guitar

Christian Palmieri - Drums

Their second album is at sight Changa. One can hear lyrics addressing Love, social issues, fantasy.

Emonk & the Jungle started long ago when Emiel's parents turned 60 years old and we played for their party celebration. We found out that we had something good going on and decided to make a quartet and get some gigs.

We played a lot in different cities and bars. We also had a steady gig for about 2 years at Cafe COX in Amsterdam.

A Paraguayan pop/rock/metal band that started all! This band was my first and gave me so many nice moments and achievements. From reaching the top of the radio charts in Paraguay with our single Nderakore to playing for 10.000 people in Ciudad del Este opening for the legendary Argentinian metal band Rata Blanca.

This was a truly awesome band!  I hope someday we could play again.
