Myrthe Delaja Cathelijne van de Weetering (1988) is a composer, producer and musician. She stems from a musical family; her mother is a piano teacher, her sister plays the cello. Myrthe played in classical children’s orchestras and took lessons from the age of five years. Her first TV performance was in 1993 at the Lucky Lotto Live Show with Jaap van Zweden.

At the age of fifteen she was startled by a gipsy orchestra at the Oerol festival and was struck by the unexpected musical possibilities outside the classical style. From that day on her activities cover a wide range of musical styles: jazz, hiphop, world music, pop, electronic music and classical music. After finishing high school she studied Music Production & Performance, Master Composition and Violin light music at HKU, and graduated with Honours.

By now she has travelled all over the world playing on big festivals with various bands as a soloist. Next to ‘music for music’s sake’ she is also involved as a composer in utilitarian music: for television and radio commercials, theater and dance performances, films and bands.

In 2017 she released her first album Dégoût, which contains 17 original compositions. The music is played by some of the best jazz musicians of the Netherlands.

These are some of the other albums she joins in:

Killah Priest – Planet of the Gods (violin)

Reazun & John Konatty – Lopen & Rennen (violin)

Pierre et les Optimistes – Désaccordé (double bass&violin, co-composing & mixing)

l’Chaim – Animal Bazaar (composition, violin, mixing)

Sjors van der Panne – Klassiekers in het concertgebouw (violin)

Akwasi – Daar Ergens (violin)

Julien Mier – When Will You Wake Up? (composition&vocals)
