March 17th 2017 is Kayak D-day. Maybe we should call it B-day, because the name of Kayak's new lead singer is Bart Schwertmann, who also happens to celebrate his 30th anniversary as vocalist this year.
Bart started as singer/bass player in a band called Galaxy, gained national recognition in 2000 for winning a popular Dutch tv talent show with his rendition of 'Gethsemane' from Jesus Christ Superstar, and played with too many bands and artists to mention. At the moment he is also guitarist/singer in a southern rock band called Vanderlinde that's doing well in Germany. Bart will soon release a solo album entitled 'Doing Time'.
Can't wait to hear how Bart sounds in Kayak? Simply pre order the new album 'Seventeen' at www.kayakwebshop.nl and listen to a demo of the track 'Cracks', marking Bart Schwertmann's Kayak debut.
