Dutch Cassidy is a singer/songwriter from The Netherlands, whose songs are commonly described as sounding “A little bit Country, a little bit Rock’n’Roll” and have been likened to John Hiatt’s and Jason Isbell's. With 25 years of music under his belt, Dutch has explored a diversity of musical styles among which punk, rhythm&blues and the typically Dutch smartlap. Under his birthname, Dutch published several recordings on the now defunct KELT label.

Early 2016 Dutch released the EP 'Albumette' with 4 songs, recorded with a selection of seasoned artists.

Dutch's new EP 'Getting There' (5 songs including the FAWM2017 hit New York City) is up for release any moment now.

    I try to co-write a lot with FAWM: its like hanging out in the sandbox 🤣

  • @marthie Feb 27

    Found you!

  • @tsunamidaily Feb 25

    you can give into temptation on "liquor holds me." i did get a rough draft, but it is an echo of another song of mine. too mellow, maybe. but you really hit it with "dream your life..". it hits hard with the orchestra coming in. thanks again for that.

  • @tsunamidaily Feb 24

    love the setting for 'dream your life,...". you had said it engaged you-- i'm glad that you engaged with it. thanks!

  • @boyatheart  Feb 23

    Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked what you heard! 😀

  • @flutterby42 Feb 22

    Regarding your comments on Don't Knock It, no need to worry about coming in front of a council of FAWMers! I've written way worse than that (not this year, but a couple of years ago, I wrote a song about parents trying to "get some alone time" and then getting interrupted in the act.) As long as you have the NSFW warning, you're good. (And people like me will appreciate your naughtiness and sense of humour!)

    Also, thanks for your comments on my ode to semlor. It was not meant to be high art, but I guess only someone who's eaten one can truly appreciate just how wonderful they are. And your description got ME drooling!

  • @majordanby  Feb 22

    Don't get me wrong, it would probably be an album favourite. I like the vibe very much.

  • @flutterby42 Feb 21

    Yep, I'm 1967 too! While I appreciate your original lyrics for Act My Age, I think it was smart to scratch them for some that are more accessible to a younger audience. But please - you're hardly ancient!

  • @michaelepic Feb 21

    Oh my goodness LOL I was screaming with delight! I loved hearing your stripped down cover of "My Stache" 😁 thank you so much for doing that! It really made my day!!

  • @majordanby  Feb 21

    You are welcome. 14 songs, congratulations. As I said I only just discovered you so will check out more if your songs tomorrow. Going to record tonight.

  • @michaelepic Feb 21

    Thank you very much for your comment on my song "My Stache" and hopefully I'll be able to have music for it soon 😀

  • @brrrse  Feb 17

    Bravo on One Step Back! That's how I heard it too! Fantastic work! thank you so much!

  • @crimulus  Feb 16

    Doc was probably right about me, but I appreciate your rebelliousness. 😁

    Thanks for the comment and watchlist!

  • @mrmule Feb 16

    thank you. This western thing came together quite nicely after all doodling I've done here, so I guess it makes it's way to my bandcamp as an actual album. I just love playing things like that, I don't need to make a single effort for it, it just makes itself! 😀

  • @flutterby42 Feb 2017

    Tack för dina trevliga kommentarer! Jag tänker at du känner Hässleholm, eller att det är hål i Skane!

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    I likey very much, you clever clogs. See song comment thread for more detail.

  • @mardeycranbleson  Feb 2017

    Loved your comment on ceiling fan, thank you for that!

  • @tiller2  Feb 2017

    Hi, here's where I read about Moddergat http://www.museummoddergat.nl/the-mod...

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comment on Another Bar, I was experimenting with garageband. Getting it to record to audio tracks at same time. My idea was for the the single strums to be the verses, double strum to be bridge with the multi strums to be the chorus. Didn't work as well as I would have liked. Take care and thanks again.

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 2017

    Just letting you know that the finished version of Clouds They Gather is now up - http://fawm.org/songs/65849/

  • @michaelepic Feb 2017

    Thank you for the comment you left on "My Stache"! I really appreciate it and I'm eager to check out your tunes! Especially "Red Light Fever" 😁

  • @spunky4455 Feb 2017

    Hahaha thanks for listening and commenting on our song. Was fun to do. Keep up your great work and enjoy the FAWM experience!

  • @kc5 Feb 2017

    Hey Dutch1967, Thanks for sharing that clip! What a riot! That is just too funny and pretty cool at the same time! So many funny, clever and talented people, I tell ya! Really got a kick outa that guy!

  • @mardeycranbleson  Feb 2017

    yep i don't know if you've seen the documentary 'deep blues' but that riff right in the beginning reminds me of some of the stuff shown in the movie.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    Ah, I get it now. It's in my best (or, at least, most mercenary) interests to take all collabs offers seriously. But I should have given you more credit than I did.

  • @tsunamidaily Feb 2017

    thanks for commenting on each of my first three songs! i do hope we strike up something between us again.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    You are welcome to do as you please, although I think it would be a shame for 'The Five Men' to go without - I took myself rather more seriously with that one, as you might imagine.

  • @tsunamidaily Feb 2017

    hey there! just getting around to catching up with folks. hope you have a great FAWM! have fun!

  • @kc5 Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comments on "Just a Washing Machine", dutch1967.

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 2017

    Also, YEARS, not EARS.

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 2017

    Ah gotcha. I have that as the bridge, but you can do whatever you want! The last couple ears I was better about labeling chords and parts of the song but this year I'm kinda letting the Fawmiverse guide me.

  • @mardeycranbleson  Feb 2017

    Yeah I hear you - my wife is the real singer in my family but she has zero interest.

  • @mardeycranbleson  Feb 2017

    Sorry I didn't realize downloadable was a setting on soundcloud, I'll go change it now - thank you for the encouragement!

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 2017

    Hi Dutch *waves* 😀

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 2017

    Hey go for it. I'm going to be traveling the next couple days so probably won't get the chance to record it. The bridge references the flammability of an old Christmas tree. This song is entirely based on the debauchery that took place at my friend's house on Thursday night...we were sitting around the outdoor fire drinking whiskey and we cut up the old Xmas tree and those things are terrifyingly volatile.

  • @seanbrennan  Feb 2017

    Hi, Dutch! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on "Gut Check." Here's to a fruitful FAWM for us both!

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    Looking forward to hearing the result!

  • @michaelepic Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comment! I'll pay it back on Red Light Fever (which is a title I love and reminds me of Red Light Warning Sign) and I hope not to let you down and can get that vocal demo with the drum and bass together!

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    Can you believe we're on the eve of creation?
