WHAT DID SHE DO?
Usi ES used to play and dream for herself.
During a holiday in 2019 she set out to Finland, to be alone on an island.
She left with too much thermal underwear, ‘The Complete Short Stories’ by Roald Dahl, and a midi-keyboard.
She came home with the song ‘Billy Weaver’, and it would turn out to be the first song on her 4-track EP 'Mutiny'.
This EP was received very well by music blogs and Ayco Duyster chose the song Billy Weaver as 'the sound of silence' (her song of the day on Radio 1).
A few months later she also released the song 'Christian' as a single, which was picked up by Radio 1.
She was invited to play some nice support gigs for Sylvie Kreusch and Matt Watts. in Arenberg, Handelsbeurs and (2x) AB.
September 2020 Usi ES released another single, called 'Darwin'. This Single was also picked up by Radio 1 and also by #ikluisterbelgisch (Stubru). Check it out on Youtube or Spotify!
