This is Philine
with her bright and luminous vocals and honest storytelling, philine quickly catches your attention. the 23 year old singer from rotterdam has already opened for artists such as froukje, matt simons, we three and maaike ouboter, was chosen as 3voor12 talent from the 2022 popronde edition and released her debut ep called “somewhere else” last year.
early in her life, philine got intertwined with songwriting. “my mother always used to write her own songs, she for example made up lullabies for my sisters and I, for when we went to sleep. I think that’s why from a very young age, writing songs became something very natural to me.” the older philine got, the stronger her love of singing and writing grew. she learnt to play piano and spent most of her time writing songs about all that inspired her. “almost everything I write is based on personal experiences. I strive to paint a picture as honest and as direct as I can, so that others might recognise themselves in my lyrics.”
philine grew up mostly listening to artists such as john mayer and fleetwood mac, but nowadays mainly gets her inspiration from artists like holly humberstone, the war on drugs and phoebe bridgers.
