The Dutch answer to Keith Urban & Sam Hunt;
The Young River is a Dutch New Country band consisting of lead singer and guitarist Nick
Jongejan, bassist Timmy Steenstra Toussaint and drummer Gijs de Waal, who all met at
the Rock Academy. What makes this group so unique is that they are all from different
backgrounds but they all share one big love for Country music. Great inspiration for the
band are artists such as Keith Urban, Dan + Shay and All Time Low.
With a perfect combination of rock guitars, solid rhythms, polyphonic vocals, banjo and
mandolin, the band creates a breath of fresh air within the Dutch music scene. Their goal
is to put modern Country music on the map. Currently, they are working on a second EP
which will be released in 2019.
