Drummer – Composer – Producer
Crazy memory; flying with my drumset above 40.000 visitors (2 nights!) of ‘Armin Only’ at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam!
Bands & Projects
Blues/rock band with SAXON founder and guitarist Paul Quinn (UK) on guitar and Harrison Young (USA) on bass/vocals. New single ‘The Gamble’ (about our touring adventures during the Corona-outbreak in Europe) out now; listen here.
THE JACK & THE JOKER
Deriving from The Cards, The Jack & The Joker is a side-project of me and Harrison (Jack of all trades), playing covers of our favorite tracks in our own way! Be sure to check out a livestream one of these days!
Singer Annicke Shireen’s debut solo EP ‘The Serpent’ (c0-written and produced by me) will be an immersive dark and moody crossover EP containing three songs with enchantingly feminine vocals, heavy drums and a touch of electronics. More info here.
“Koen is not only a great drummer, but his performance and expression are also why I love to have him in my shows!”
“Koen has been voted Holland’s best hard-rock drummer now for several years. He has the sort of fire in his belly that would make any greats such as John Bonham and Ian Paice smile.”
“Koen, Again, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your preparation, professionalism and for sounding so great last night at the SENA guitar awards. great job!”
