solo debut album out now!


Loes van Schaijk is a multilingual singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist living Prague, Czech Republic.

Originally from the Netherlands, Loes is known and respected on the European bluegrass and folk music scenes from bands such as Red Herring from the Netherlands, Svaťa Kotas Band from the Czech Republic, and Waterflow from Slovakia, with whom she has performed, toured, and released albums since 2005.

In 2021, Loes collected her finest original material on her solo debut album All I Ever Really Seem To Say in collaboration with producer Ondra Kozák. With few guest appearances (Ondra Kozák on guitar, mandolin, and violin; Jan Bartošek on violin; Joram Peeters on violin and whistle; Arthur Deighton on bouzouki; Petr Brandejs on banjo; and Radek Vaňkát on Dobro), the album is minimalistic and intimate. All the more do Loes's characteristic warm voice and her songwriting skills stand out.  

All I Ever Really Seem To Say is the singer-songwriter equivalent of a single malt Speyside whisky:

neat, pure, with a strong flavor of its own and a slightly sweet aftertaste.

If you didn't know her already, then the song "Being Here" is your introduction to Loes—as a person and as a musician.
