Rene Potse


René was born on December 17, 1971 in the small town of Zandberg in Ter Apelkanaal, under the smoke of the Avebe factory. His interest in music started at the age of 11, when his brother received organ lessons from Harm Jan Wijnholds. René found this interesting and went to his bedroom to play the song that his brother had to learn. And so René learned more and more songs by heart, no notes or lesson, no, that seemed like nothing to René. Years later René started a duo with his then girlfriend Gerda, under the name "Nothing Else". They performed regularly, René on keyboards and vocals and Gerda vocals. In the end, a relationship breakup ensued, and the duo "Nothing Else" was also destroyed. A few years later, René decided to pick up the thread again with the performances and started doing this solo. Unfortunately, due to health reasons, René also had to stop. Was this the end of making music for him? No, René kept playing and playing and built up a home studio in one of his bedrooms. The equipment has since expanded to such an extent that it forms a complete one-man band.
