Image: 1599363 The new record follows 2013’s At The Back Of Beyond,
which was warmly received creatively and commercially, and
inspired Ntjam to perform throughout Holland and across
Europe. “That was an album that was a part of me, and that
needed to explore my poppy side,” she says. “I’m grounded in
jazz and soul, and pop. But as a songwriter, I really needed
to go through that album to learn how to play the guitar, to
see and hear what kind of songs I would write, and also to
put the guitar on the palette — literally being able to pick the
guitar up to write.”
The songs for The One were written around the time Ntjam
got married, in January 2014, and was made with her regular
band and engineer Vincent Helbers at her side. Martin
Fondse added strings, and there are guest appearances by
friends and fellow artists Pink Oculus (rap), Eric Vloeimans
(trumpet) and Ronald Snijders (flute).
Her graduation as a cosmopolitan, 21st century woman and
musician included nominations both for Holland’s Edison
Awards, twice, and the Elle Personal Style Awards, playing
the North Sea Jazz Festival, and gigs from Thailand to Turkey
and Estonia to China.
