Hello fellow Indiens

And a very good year too.
Like so many here I migrated from RR. Uploading didn’t work there when I last tried, so a fresh start is a good idea. I still don’t really know what “indie” is supposed to mean. And the question that really keeps me awake: is a frequenter of an indie site an Indien?

I just wrote a long intro about myself on my homepage or whatever it’s called. So I won’t repeat it all here. I come from and live in the Netherlands. Check me out!

Can’t wait to post my first recording: I’ ve been working on it throughout Christmas.


Welcome Aef! Glad you made it over here. I like the “Indien” tag! Looking forward to hearing your stuff. :notes:

Hi Chordwainer,
I will. On RR you might have known me by Eef. Both are short for Evert. In my language (Dutch) the E in Evert is pronounced Ae, hence the change:slight_smile:

Welcome @Aef ! Glad you made. Please share with us how your experiences are shaping your music!

Yes we smoke with pipes and make fires all day long! Welcome!

Nice biography you wrote on your profil page!

Thanks Holster,
I should have looked it up myself, but this makes things a lot clearer. My association with indie was a certain type of music from the 90’s, but the term tends to be used for all sorts. This definition brings it back to where it belongs, and a term which has been rightfully claimed by home recording musicians!
Proud to be an Indien!:man_with_turban:

I thought that might be the case, but didn’t want to assume… welcome again!

And I just can’t resist posting this epic song from the mighty John Hiatt:

Can’t wait to hear it.

Hey @Aef - fellow Nederlander (although I’m actually English) saying “hoi!” - looking forward to hear your first recording

lols. I have it understood that indie stands for independent labels… yet down here in Panama it’s turned into an acoustic type genre which has also made me tumble in bed when I start pondering over what it’s supposed to mean also…

Anyhow, this seems like a nice place and good people. Looking forward to the contest entries and getting to meet all and share!!

nice to meet ya,

Looks like there will be some fun here :smiley:
