Welcome into the world of FREDERIKE MUSIC.
Original music composed by Frederike Schonis, Albert van Dorssen and Juan van Emmerloot. Our aim is to create the best possible music with our talents and for our time! We compose while jamming, combining our musical backgrounds and experiences, and collaborating with great friend artists. Each song, each composition grows into its own musical journey. We refine, we detail until it is perfect to our liking and ready for you to enjoy!
Frederike Schonis has been singing jazz for over 30 years and therefore she has a wide experience and knowledge of her jazz repertoire. She performed with various line-ups and traditional combos throughout the Benelux. However, her urge to write original compositions, based on her personal and emotional life, grew more and more. Frederike’s optimistic view of the world and her warm sultry voice are now brought together in a compilation of own songs.
Albert van Dorssen, pianist and composer, has a taste for soul music and jazz and has been playing in many ensembles throughout his musical career. His passion is to create original music. As a composer Albert was active when playing in the "Jan Somers Band", a crossover Jazz-rock band that released the CD "Here We Are". Albert can also be heard on many CD productions of Dutch XL band ‘Licks & Brains’.
Juan van Emmerloot is drummer, composer and producer of FREDERIKE MUSIC. Besides his drumming talent Juan brings in a huge international musical experience. Juan participated in many different international rock & blues acts. After touring with Snowy White and the 'SBG' (Stef Burns Group) Juan set up his own studio in the Netherlands and developed his view on recording and producing.
In 2019 Frederike, Albert and Juan decided to team up and start their band which they named FREDERIKE MUSIC. Frederike, Albert and Juan are responsible for first ideas and song elaborations. Juan takes full control over the recording and producing. FREDERIKE MUSIC collaborates with a group of friend artists and professionals which contribute to our aim to produce the best possible music. It is a feast to work together with such talented musicians
