mathilde santing brengt op haar 60ste verjaardag voor het eerst in 10 jaar een nieuw studio album uit

On wednesday 24 october Mathilde Santing, who is one of Holland’s best singers since the previous century,
celebrates her birthday with the launch of her new studio-album Troublemaker. Produced by Attie Bauw. The first studio-album with songs she wrote herself.

She wMathilde Santing - Troublemakerill play these songs during her theatertour RENAISSANCE. Because she hás been reborn. And she has started over. Besides being talented Mathilde Santing is headstrong. So she underwent a ‘performance-enhancing’-treatment from Brainspotting-inventor David Grand. And what did she notice a couple of days later? Her voice had become more beautiful. The fun, the softness, the emotions they all seemed to get more room, more space.

Mathilde is experiencing a musical rebirth. Another title for her theater-concert was unthinkable.
Renaissance will tour till the end of March throughout the whole country
