Besides my work as a Motion Graphic designer I'm a passionate Singer-Songwriter. I first started to play the guitar when I was 14 years old and have been playing in a lot of different bands ever since.
I'm currently in the process of writing songs for an E.P. to be released later this year. In the meantime I'm performing at different open mic nights and small venues.
If you want to stay informed, make sure to like my Facebook page and follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
I was asked to perform two of my songs live at the TEDxHIlversum stage.
One guitar, one week, one song. That's the idea behind the lovely Acoustic Guitar Project. I was fortunate enough to be one of the dutch participants for this project. I had one week to write and record a song using the provided guitar and recorder.
This resulted in the song 'Not The End' which can be found on the AGP website: www.theacousticguitarproject.com/artist/michiel-verweij
And this is a video of me performing the song:
Gemeente Hilversum asked me to perform in this promo for Festival de Lijst.
