Anouk

Anouk Teeuwe (born April 8, 1975) is a Dutch singer. Born in The Hague, Anouk is the daughter of a blues singer. She initially sang at weddings and parties with the band Shotgun Wedding, prior to meeting Barry Hay of the Golden Earring. Hay believed Anouk to have talent, and offered to write her some songs, one of which was Mood Indigo; written in collaboration with George Kooymans (also from the Golden Earring).

After she met Bart van Veen, the pair wrote a few singles together. On September 5, 1997, she released her second single, Nobody's Wife, which remained at the top of the Dutch music charts for a number of weeks. Her debut album, Together Alone also turned out to be a success.

In 1998, Anouk won two awards from Dutch music station TMF, in addition to an Edison award. During the summer, she played at various festivals, including two 'big ones', Pinkpop and Parkpop.

Her second album, Urban Solitude, was released in November 1999, and included the single R U Kiddin' Me. It made it into the Dutch Album Top 100.

Shortly afterwards, Anouk moved to the United States in order to record new material. Negotiations with her American label ended badly, causing her to return to the Netherlands. She released a new single, Don't and began touring the Netherlands in February 2001.

In March 2001, she released another album, Lost Tracks, which contained acoustic versions and B-sides from older singles, and various duets with K's Choice singer Sarah Bettens and The Anonymous Mis. She was awarded the Popprijs award in 2001 and a Golden Harp in 2003.

Her latest full length release is called 'Hotel New York' (2004) and yielded a total of three singles, Girl, Lost and Jerusalem.
