Listen to his new Christmas single ‘This Christmas’. Now available on Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, iTunes.
With his dark vocals, poppy arrangements and delicate indie craft, Dutch singer/songwriter Van Xan started as a solo artist, early 2022.
Van Xan is originally a drummer. A professional drummer for one decade now. He plays in several bands and owns his own drumstudio, named ‘Only Drumming’, where he records his songs and teaches drums. All instruments and vocals are played, sung, recorded and mixed by Van Xan. Except the saxophone solo on ‘Everyday I Will Love You’ and lead guitar and bouzouki on ‘Jumbo Jet’.
The songs on his first EP ‘Hotel Monique’ fall back on the first six weeks of falling in love that started at the end of 2021. The EP starts with the song ‘Little Drummer Boy’. In this song he describes what drumming does to his girlfriend’s son. This boy is only seven years old. This song is also a reflection on Van Xan his own experience as a young drummer.
His latest release is the Christmas single ‘This Christmas’, November 7, 2022. A happy tune with sarcastic lyrics.
