Inspiration by idols like Ben Howard, John Butler, John Smith and the Tallest Man on Earth and a deeply rooted love for old myths and stories of lost times come together in the characteristic sound of Aidan & the Wild. Aidan & the Wild, the singer-songwriter alias for Diederik van den Brandt, takes his listeners to a musical exploration through his interpretation of folk and americana. From grooving americana and exciting songs about Jesus to enchanting melodies that take the listener to another world, from personal love stories to epic songs about myths and dragons.
Despite the fact that he is only in his 20s, Aidan & the Wild has already played almost 400 shows, both solo, accompanied by his band and as a “side man” with Baptiste W. Hamon. A few of his highlights are a support tour for Dan Owen (UK), shows at two editions of the coveted Naked Song festival, tours in Germany and France, and a spot at Ilse de Lange’s Truckerville Festival. His first EP “Iliad” (2017) ended up at the in Los Angeles established label Vinyl Moon and in september 2019 he released his self-recorded and produced EP “Homegrown”.
