The Players



Moodee’s music reflects the landscape that she grew up in. Wide open spaces, the ocean and low hanging clouds. The first 22 years of her life she could be found sailing the canals or walking the cold beaches of the Netherlands. Her compositions are a combination of space and melancholy, movement and calm. Her music is a journey, an observation of the beautiful, restless, harsh and delicate reality of today’s world.
