 Biografie (Dutch)
 Biography
Joris Koster Born: 1977
City of birth: Eindhoven
Based: Amsterdam
Recordlabel: Grand Applause Records (owner) Joris Koster schrijft sinds zijn 15e liedjes. Geïnspireerd door songwriters als Damien Rice, Elvis Costello, Jeff Buckley en Neill Young, schrijft hij dagelijks teksten en gedichten. Samen met zijn wringende gitaar-akkoorden vormen zij de basis voor elk nieuw idee. Zonder vooropgesteld plan krijgt elk liedje een eigen stijl, sfeer en ongepolijste arrangementen. Met als belangrijkste element; de tekst. Zonder clichés of zoetigheid, eerlijk over de liefde en het leven. In het bezit zijnde van een eigen studio krijgt elk nummer een andere bezetting. Voor elk nummer een andere groep muzikanten, want het ene nummer heeft strijkers nodig en het andere nummer alleen zang en gitaar. Voor het eerst speelt Joris LIVE zonder z'n vaste groep muzikanten en meestal alleen, maar niet minder indrukwekkend.
Joris Koster is without a doubt songwriter with an unique sound and repertoire. As songwriter he wrote songs for a number of bands and artists for over a decade. Now its time to steal the show by himself. With songs about love, life and everything ever after. His lyrics are semi-autobiographical with a slight hint of humor. At the age of 15 he started playing in different bands as a heavy rock guitar player. But he could never resist the urge to pick up his acoustic six-string to write songs. First in secrecy in the attic for no one to hear. As he grew as a songwriter he wrote songs for several rock-bands like G.r.O.s.S. (punk), Del Foob (P-Funk) and as lead singer for the band MoodBox. ”I’m not looking for the next best concept or world-fame, every song needs it’s own sound, atmosphere and instrumentalists” At the age of 20 he moved to the vibrant city of Amsterdam to study graphic art. Something that became very usefull making artwork and posters. Beside making music he made hand-drawn animations. Joris still designs all his own artwork. In Amsterdam he form several bands of which MoodBox is the most famous and precious band. He performed in top venues across the country and played national radiostations. In May 2015 Joris Koster will release his first solo-album ’The little souvenirs of life’ on his own label Grand Applause Records’
