quotes:
'Happiness Junkies are a welcome addiction' (review Indie-Spoonful.com)

'A great slowbeat rock disk straight from The Netherlands. Guitar, piano, a mix of female and male vocals along with a rhythm box creates a great sound. Recommended tracks: 3, 5, 6, 7, 10' (Mark Langan, host Deep Mission show, KALX radio, CA, US)

'a very relaxing, often calming album with your beautiful warm and at the same time powerful voice... and Onno's relaxed guitar playing, so much variation in sound, from crystal clear to powerful and magical...!' (Andrea, Bruxelles, BE)


Enjoy a slowbeat in a fast world...?

We are Happiness Junkies... Dreamy slowbeat rock by female/male duo with electric guitar and piano entwined, female vox & a rhythm box

What if... with just female vocals, piano and electric guitar you pretty much sound like a band

What if... piano and electric guitar entwine in a special way

What if... the sound of a drum machine seems just right

What if... you turn the tempo down to a slowbeat and...

What if... two band members are more than enough

Happy to meet you...
we are Happiness Junkies, two music monks from the Amsterdam area

presenting to you our mastered album with dreamy slowbeat rock; electric guitar and piano entwined, female vox & a rhythm box

The range of guitar pedals include an octaver to produce guitar & bass notes at the same time through a split guitar/bass amp setup. This way the duo sounds like a full band.

El – vocals, piano, percussion & Onno – guitar/bass, drum programming, backvocs

Our Happiness Junkies debut contains 10 original songs, written, recorded, mixed & produced by HJ and mastered by Don Tyler at IO Mastering, Los Angeles, CA.

‘there's nothing wrong with having fun, and you, you bring out the sun' (from: You Can Leave Your Light On - hey, have a listen?!)
