Roel van Veldt 7


Antwerp BE   Jan 2010  

Artist Bio

Influences:   I love great ballads, progressive and symphonic pop/rock, soundtracks, acoustic music, and so much more. I leave to your interpretation who influenced my style, and I'm curious what my music reminds you of.

I'm Roel van Veldt, a composer-songwriter-producer who loves to improvise on the piano. FAWM and 50/90 have changed my life for the better, for 10 years now already! I'm incredibly lucky to have found here the joy of collaboration due to the many great lyricists and musicians. You're all in my heart, sweet friends!

If I can be of any help to any of you songwriters out there, I'd glady collaborate. Be it about improvisation, chord progressions, melodies, a nice backing vocal, song parts, arrangement, mixing... If you need an instrumental part (anything!), a tad of vocal pitch correction, a remix that brings the best out of your song, ask and you shall receive (what's within my power, of course). I look forward to hear from you.

§ Roel

P.S. If you'd like to hear more of my songs, Google "Roel van Veldt" and "Soundcloud" or "YouTube". Alas, my life has been a constant struggle, leaving me so little time for my passion. So most of what you find are just the very first recordings with some quick fixes, and sometimes a quick n' dirty arrangement. Maybe one day, I will find arrangers and producers that would love to help me to bring the songs to a professional level. If that could be you, let me know! 😁

    My dear friend! Thank you sooooo much for the wonderful song on "Can this be love"! I absolutely LOVE it. It sounds like a wonderful romantic classic, your voice is awesome and the piano simply magic… The chorus is superb, totally catchy and memorable... I am very, very happy about it.
    And Roel, could you, please, send me a demo on my email address, which is
    ? Thanks so much!

    Hi! I left the metronome in on purpose. It's my old wind up one I've had for eons. Sounded like a clock to me, which fit the vibe of the song perfectly. The piano and vox were separate tracks. 😀

  • @srcoops  Feb 8

    I would be happy to have you collaborate with me on something. Hope we can work that out.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 3

    Dear Roel! Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments! They made my day! I guess I owe you some explanations. First regarding "Heart of fire": You are absolutely right, Austria is not a part of the Balkan area, but I do have roots in the Balkan from my mother´s side, and sometimes I try to integrate that part of the world in my lyrics, too. As far as "I still remember her smile/ If I cared for her" is concerned: I apologise for posting the wrong set of lyrics. Sometimes I use the same titles and similar hooks in different lyrics of mine, sometimes the same set of lyrics has two or three alternative titles, I mistook it for a recent one and withdrew it in the meanwhile, replacing it for that set of lyrics that was meant to be posted. Thanks a lot for drawing my attention to it. And last, but for sure not least, thank you so much for being willing to give "Perfect world" and "Forever and a day" a try! I would look very, very forward to it! Please, let me know if you like me to ad

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2

    My dear friend, thank you sooooooooo much for your wonderful words, you cannot imagine how happy you made me... and conjured up a smile in my face… what do I say - many smiles!!! I hope you are fine… After a turbulent year 2019 when I skipped FAWM and 50/90 as well, I am happy to be back, though unsure how intensely I will be able to participate. You are always more than welcome to pick up any lyrics you like, and thanks so much for giving "Can this be love" a try! Please, let me know if you like me to add you as collaborator, or just post the eventual song - just as you like... It is great to see you here, my friend!

  • @kristi  Feb 2

    Hi Roel! Great to see you here! Yes, go ahead with music for My Invitation! Go ahead and make it a new song when you post...can't wait to hear it!
