“Singer-songwriter Aniek Maren writes and plays her own songs. Playing her guitar and singing about the good things in life, and the little stings life might bring. Aniek Maren has a very pleasant sultry voice: husky if need to and pitch perfect in the upper regions.” (www.arnhemsmuziekplatform.nl)
