Bregje Sanne Lacourt

Melancholy, the joy of life and self mockery are walking hand in hand. She describes her her life in detail with a mix of country, Folk & Blues what gives the album an American feel. Nashville but not(from) Nashville.

‘Drink my Beers and smoke my cigarettes and make stupid jokes while dancing in some fancy dress I don’t feel comfortable in’ – Baby’s Blue Eyes


Album ‘ The Keeper of Changing Winds’

After many years of singing she decided to walk another path and it was a necessity to record her own songs without concessions, just pure from her head and heart.

In the summer of 2013 Bregje Sanne Lacourt gave the kick-off for her first full length album ‘The Keeper of Changing Winds’, together with her sound engineer and pseudo-brother Michel Ebben. The album was released in September 2014.

She received only positive reviews which is quite exceptional in the Music Industry.


Influenced by Blues, Country and Folk the album contains 11 songs partly written with Michel, partly on her own and two covers. ‘Got to Go (Cancion Del Diablo)’ was written by Michel en ‘Walking back Home’ was written by renowned songwriter and artist Eric Taylor.

U Don’t Know was released as first single in May 2014 and got airplay on Crossroadsradio, Radio Zes and AVRO Stream.

Sasha Ivantic came up with an idea for the video and they started shooting on April 18th together with Richard Beukelaar, Steven Rietveld and Michel Ebben.(And dog Nona)

The choice to release Jim Croche’s Time in a Bottle as a second single after ‘U Don’t know’ while it is not on the album, had to do with the fact that Jagoda Bobrowska wanted to shoot the video for this song. Bregje recorded it for friends who were pregnant with their first child.

The choice of instruments gave the album the same old fashioned and coming home feeling. Bregje and her band kept the recordings authentic by using banjo, mandoline, organ, harmonica, double bass, a variety of guitars, trumpet and a little bit of piano here and there. Every sound you hear is a real instrument recorded with microphones rather than through a direct line.



Arie Verhaar on drums and Erik Versluis on bass are the foundation of most of the songs. Backingvocals were sung by Wies Peeters (Delouise), Marinka Stam (LuLu Doxin), Vera Jessen Juhrend (Sommerhus), Jesse Reece, Rias Baarda, Richard Beukelaar, Steven Rietveld and Michel Ebben.



Guestmusicians: Trumpet and Trombone by David Rockefeller(New Cool Collective),Double Base Picking and Striking by Peter Jessen.

The Album was recorded at Tempting tunes Studio and mixed by John Vanderslice and Jacob Winik at the Tiny Telephone studio in San Fransisco
