Edward Reekers

Edward Reekers starts his musical journey at high school in Rotterdam, where he sings in various bands and plays various instruments, including keyboards, guitar and drums.

In 1978, a friend of Edward discovered an advertisement looking for a singer for the symphonic rock band Kayak. Despite being a big fan, Reekers initially doubts his chances. Ultimately, he submits a demo and is accepted. Kayak releases the album "Phantom Of The Night" in January 1979, containing the hit single "Ruthless Queen", which becomes a great success in the Netherlands, France and the US.

In 1980, Edward released his first solo album, "The Last Forest", which also contained symphonic rock elements. In 2015, Edward Reekers left the band Kayak and continued his musical career. He remains active and participates in several projects, including "Symfo Classics" and "Ayreon Universe" in 2017.

Why did it take fifteen years for Edward Reekers to make another album? The COVID-19 pandemic played a crucial role, as live performances became impossible. Despite the darkness of the pandemic, he found inspiration to write and make music, with the support of his daughter Melody and friends like Mark Bogert, who enriched his demos with guitar parts. Joost van den Broek became involved and became enthusiastic about the idea of a possible rock opera.

Reekers emphasizes the support he received from friends, colleagues and his family, as well as financial, production and promotional help. He considers the album his life's work and is eagerly looking forward to the album launch! On May 17, 2024 he will also present the work from this album in Poppodium P60.
