BORN is a very expressive and dynamic piano trio around pianist Born Sanders, drummer Peter Weissink and bass player Bart Soeters.

BORN’s surprisingly direct compositions are catchy from grooving to melancholy. A BORN concert is an impulsive quest for the ultimate musical freedom. In rapid dialogues the musicians challenge each other to the limit, keeping their audience on the edge of their seats.

Being experienced session musicians for years with appreciated artists including Kaz Lux, Josee Koning and Geert Chatrou Izaline Calister, the trio joined forces. Immediately after its formation in January 2011, they recorded EP “Impulsive Touch” at the Fattoria Musica studio in Osnabrück (GER)

2011 and 2012 the band was mainly performing at many locations and festivals including Kurhaus Scheveningen, Krasnapolsky Amsterdam, de Beurs van Berlage Amsterdam, Jazz festival Laren, Breda Jazz festival, Meerjazz Festival Hoofddorp. They also performed during the premiere of the Dutch movie “Gooische Vrouwen” next to Alain Clark at the DeLamar Theater in Amsterdam. BORN also performed abroad including Poland, Germany, Belgium and France.

Exactly two years later on the 10th of January 2013 BORN recorded their second EP “Refined” at the Power Sound Studio in Amsterdam. This EP will officially be released on April 30th 2013. A very pleasant coincidence is that the release will go together with the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander, our new Dutch king. A great moment  and time to release this new EP! A succesful tour to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) and London (UK) follows in June and August of 2013. In Oktober 2014 BORN released their new EP ‘Continuous Drift – Theater Live Recordings’ together with two videoclips for both songs produced by VDK studio.
