TRAUDES was formed by front man Benjamin Traudes, who met producer and fellow student Loek van der Grinten at the music academy. A collaboration was born after producing a track which got the attention of the people around them. Soon afterwards, fellow students Max Anglionin (keys), Frederieke Kroone (backing vocals), Elian van Buuren (drums) en Bas Veens (bass) join the band.
The band records their debut EP ‘CRLS & GRLS’ which is set for release in januari 2018. The EP features raw break-up songs set in the city of Amsterdam, and contains the succesful single ‘BACK DOWN’, which already gathered over 700.000 streams on Spotify. The band will perform at several major Dutch pop festivals during the summer. Stay tuned for this band!
