Louise van den Heuvel (Sonic Hug)
Louise van den Heuvel (bass, vocals, compositions) | Hendrik Lasure (keys) | Sam Comerford (reets) | Daniel Jonkers (drums)
While she's still making great name as one third of the electronically infused trio Dishwasher_and in the bands of Stéphane Galland, Lander Gyselinck/Zwangere Guy, Teun Verbruggen or Bruno Vansina, Dutchbass player Louise van den Heuvel did feel the urge to form anew group of her own as well.
Surrounded by three equally inevitable peer musicians in the front of the new Belgian jazz generation,Sonic Hug became a very personal, unique new project.Influenced by the sounds of Scandinavia and bands such as ADHD, the vibe of Sonic Hug is etheric, elegant, melodically narrative, and always searching for a grasping groove.
The quartet's debut album is planned for release on April 5th 2024 via W.E.R.F. Records.
