Tobias Kerkhoven

I am Tobias Kerkhoven. Since playing electric guitar from the age of 15 I have been active in several bands. I started out playing in rock, praise, funk and coverbands. In 2009 I graduated (bachelor of music) from the conservatory in Zwolle, the Netherlands.

Besides electric guitar I play lapsteel, synths, taperecorders and theremin. I am active in the band Ode to the Quiet. I also produce and arrange mostly alternative music, ambient and soundscapes. My greatest passion is to make my instrument sound as unique, eccentric or unrecognizable as possible.

Nils Frahm, James Blake, Jon Hopkins, Arnold Schönberg and Radiohead are my biggest inspirations.
