Cornelis uses his song writing to explore the truth in everyday life in gritty and glorious detail. He aims to expresses authentic thoughts and feelings in whatever musical genre feels right, whether that’s punk rock manifestos or indie pop anecdotes. In the second half of 2021 he will release five new songs featuring a blend of hip-hop sounds and alt-rock song writing. The first of these singles: ‘Comfortable Silence’, will be released on the 18th of June 2021.
Cornelis was born in Ireland to a Dutch father and Irish mother, and after growing up in various countries he settled in London. Despite failing music in school he decided to learn to play the guitar in order to write songs. After contributing to a number of bands he decided to step up to the mic himself and found that he was able to connect with people through his lyrical story telling.
Cornelis has released songs across a variety of genres over the past couple of years but the constant is always a perspective on life that uncovers the truths we all experience day to day. Currently one of his songs ‘It Won’t Kill You’, is in the game Groove Gunner which is available on Steam now.
In the second half of 2021 he will be releasing five songs that were born out beat making experiments. His intent was to give the music to other artists. But when his plans to continue working with a band in 2020 were delayed due to Covid lockdowns he decided to write lyrics for them himself. Doing so he blended his indie, punk and alt-rock song writing sensibility with hip-hop sounds.
His next single, ‘Comfortable Silence’ will be released on the 18th of June 2021 and is a blend of hip-hop sounds and alt-rock song writing. A song about being able to connect with someone without feeling like you need to be talking all the time. Saying more with less.
