Step into the ring

Based in Amsterdam, Hans Grondel makes Americana music. The songs are catchy and tell relatable stories about love, going after your dreams and enjoying life. Warm vocal harmonies alternate with a guitar solo here and there. A few of his inspirations are Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Tom Petty and Ryan Adams.

In 2022 Hans went into the studio with the band of Rob DeKay (Bernard Gepken, Ruben van der Velde en Pieter Bakker). Not without succes because his singles: Step Into The Ring and Memories ended up in the semi-finals of the United Kingdom Songwriting Contest.

During De Grote Prijs Van Nederland (the Dutch grand prize) his song What Are We received 5 out of 5 stars by 11 music professionals. Hans has been writing songs for his upcoming EP and worked together with other artists (e.g. NinaLynn, Lisa Ploeger). The EP and the collaborations are set to be released in 2023.

Growing up in the countryside of The Netherlands, music was not seen as a career but as a hobby. For years Hans struggled combining his passion (music) with his job (working at the bar). Deep down inside Hans knew he had to make a change. He left everything behind in pursuit of his dream: a career in music.

“I could throw in the towel and spend my life regretting or learn how to roll with the punches and Step Into The Ring”
