As our dear friend, Adriana suggested, I’m pouring a little Anouk into our daily / weekly music musings. Because she’s been there for so long, so steadily following her rock path, with so much talent, it would be really reckless of me not paying attention to her in one of (what appears to be) our contemporary (Friday) Breaks.
So, without further introductions, please welcome and enjoy Anouk’s Down And Dirty!
Did you know that Anouk is a mother of four? And that she released 10 albums already? It’s unbelievable, I’ve known her for so long, since the days of “Nobody’s wife” , it’s hard to believe so much time has passed! On the other hand, I’m having troubles relating to that – time passing and its effects on people. Maybe because I look in the mirror and I still see the same girl I was years ago? When I was in my early 20s? (suffice to say that was more than a decade ago!) The people I knew then I still have around me now, every time I look at my Adored Husband I see and feel the same love I felt more than a decade ago, in the news almost the same people (with some notable exceptions, of course, but still there, nevertheless)…
Every now and then I get a reality call when one of the kids moves up from daycare to school. And then we stop and say – has it really been that long? They’re so big now?
Yeah, so I was talking about Anouk? Such a gorgeous lady, seeing her with her kids is so natural and lovely – so weird how people seem to want to know more about their artists nowadays? Who they are beyond the stage and their entertaining value? Like, for instance – I want to know more about Anouk since I’m writing about her, don’t you? Here it is, in (very) short (but I’m counting on our dear Adriana to fill in the blanks):
Anouk is Dutch. Her (full) name is Anouk Teeuwe and she’s 36. She started her musical career in 1997 and she’s still going strong, being heavily awarded throughout her career so far. (if you want, there’s more on her website here)
