ABOUT THOMAS HEIKOOP
Thomas Heikoop is an exceptional talented singer, trumpet player and songwriter, based in The Netherlands. With his experience as a session musician, working with over a 100 artists and bands (in and outside of his home country) he developed a lot of different styles and musical angles.
His musical story starts at the age of 8 when he started playing trumpet in the local wind band. After a few rough years at High School he quit playing for quite some time and started working on an inland vessel, first as a sailor and after a few years as a captain. After four years of hard work he decided to pick up the trumpet again and found out that combining singing and trumpet playing was his fate.
Thomas, will take you on a musical journey where there is room for a big laughs and sometimes a small tear. With the influences of Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Porter and his big hero Chet Baker he performs all the classics.
Sit back, relax and let the sweet tone of his voice and trumpet come to you. Close your eyes and imagine as if you are back in 1950 in a New York jazz club.
