BiGiAM management is delighted to announce new signing Fridolijn, whose debut single ‘Frame This’ ( V2 Records) has recently reached 1 million plays on Spotify.

Fridolijn (pronounced ‘Free-doe-Line’) blurs the boundaries between cinematic folk, singer-songwriter, jazz, electronica, and broken beats, which blend to produce compellingly beautiful and haunting songs.

Although a fresh new artist, Fridolijn’s impressive CV already includes playing the prestigious North Sea Jazz Festival, i-tunes hailing her as ‘New Jazz Artist of the Year’, and performing with the likes of (MOBO winners) Kairos 4tet, Stuart McCallum (guitarist of the Cinematic Orchestra) and drummer Richard Spaven (Jose James / Flying Lotus) demonstrating her pedigree as an emerging talent of enviable reputation.

BiGiAM director Mark Ede comments:
“We are delighted to be able to bring the music of this exceptional and unique artist to the UK. Fridolijn comes from the same generation as Becca Stevens, Gretchen Parlato, Esperanza Spalding, Lianne LaHavas and Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote). Strong, young female vocalists, who have in common that their rich harmonic and melodic sense, together with a lush rhythmic pallet are a strong core to their music. Although she has at times occasioned comparisons in the press with the likes of Joni Mitchell and Portishead, in reality Fridolijn is very much a singular voice with her own, compelling, artistic vision”.

Having been introduced to the UK with a successful appearance at the 2017 Great Escape festival, the following performances have been confirmed, with more to follow:

Injazz Festival Rotterdam – June 23rd
Concertgebouw Amsterdam – July 14th
Harisson’s London – July 16th
Kingskerswell Church, Devon – July 29th
