So lately I've been taking the time to do some writing, the kind of writing that I know I'll be more than thrilled to share someday soon.. I wanted to let you know that I am well and happy recording my first demo's in my little corner by the window at home. And I also wanted to show that anyone can fit themself into an instagram square. Greetings from my home! I'm enjoying the process, I mean if life is meant to be lived, why not make it more of an expedition, am I right?
Three Sisters in concert was a special one, will cherish!
Such an honour to work with these actors, singers, musicians, and rigging and lighting people.
Knew some and met some, happy to have been part of this learningful experience.
Here's a shot. Something I haven't done before. You can't really see because the photographer was a person sitting in the back end of the room.
This little theatre tour is finished for now, so I am ready to rumble with my songwriting again, keep you posted!

VOORDEKUNST UPDATE: Please Stay Tuned, hierover binnenkort meer!
Last UK show: GLASGOW tonight!
It happened so fast! And I am so immensely grateful for your support as well as for everyone who helped make this unforgettable music project possible; the musicians in the band, the incredibly professional crew, the sweet Caro Emerald and her strong and creative team, the beautiful surroundings and venues and thw people we meet, The incredibly music loving crowd (wow)! The food that the catering guys Tom & Joe served us each and every day keeping us happy as a big sunflower (or a June bug in May):
..... YOU, the ones who supported me all the way through this, you've been more than I could wish for and I am very blessed and happy to know there are people who believe in me and were willing to support me in such crazy times! This motivates me so much to continue to follow my dreams and ambitions as a performer, singer, creator, and to never give up; who knows what else will come!
We have about 8 hours to go, and this also means that during this final run I will have extra special smiles as I realize what we've realized!
Tonight's the last show this amazing tour has for us and I so very much look forward to it!
GLASGOW ARE YOU READY!!!???
Much Love and Blessings and thanks for buying Rocket Man at the venues!!
Picture taken this morning with my iphone: The "Setting up bit" of the stage by the incredible technicians, engineers, rig guys and other helmet professionals to make our stage a safe and fun place to perform!! We love them! ;-)

an UPDATE on my UK plan!
A sincere & overwhelming Thanks to You All once again for believing in me and supporting me! Not too long ago I posted a crowd-funding campaign via Voordekunst hoping to (OVER-)achieve the amount of €6000 to partly fund a tour with the great Caro Emerald on eleven big UK shows! Your contributions helped me on the road to making this possible! Current status: 100% of Goal, which is €6000. WIth all of your kind donations I have been able to fund our tourbus and the band as well as our lunch's and dinners! Thank you! The tour starts on the 9th of October, So a couple more days to go!
I recently recorded a little single consisting of 2 new Kris Berry tracks to complete the package of showcasing our band in the UK! These tracks will also be released in The Netherlands and will be available on a.o. Spotify and iTunes! I would love to get Rockstone Sessions to have the talented Nadja Freeman join us on this roadtrip to capture moments and make an amazing film of our adventures to be able to share with you! Let's over-achieve this 6000€ if enough people spread the word! My thanks are these two things: BIG and WARM! Love, K!!!

Here we go!!! Crowdfunding is ON!
Dear friends, family, colleagues, Kris Berry followers, and my entire music family:
News: The great Caro Emerald and her team asked me to join them on tour this October, in the United Kingdom!! To be their opening act in eleven big shows! To me this feels kind of like a school field trip I really look forward to and I realize I am blessed to have received such a great opportunity. However, I cannot afford this school trip. (And neither can my parents, I asked them too, laughs!). So as you can imagine I am a bit nervous, but of course I said YES! All jokes aside, I hope to take a band of super sweet musicians to England, Scotland and Wales to sing my heart out and show Caro’s UK crowd my best, and of course warm them up for the big show she will be doing. The trip is going to cost me, and I am genuinely hoping, that you, my friends and my relatives, followers and music lovers, and my entire music family will support me by donating money to help make this great opportunity possible! I thought about some sweet rewards, varying from limited edition items, for instance a CD with two brand new songs especially signed for you; tickets to a concert etc. If all of you would donate to this project, even a small amount helps, That could just make the difference!!!
I thank you so much for reading this and for your support. Bless you!
Dag lieve vrienden, familie, kennissen, collega's, trouwe Kris Berry en Caro Emerald fans, volgers en muziekliefhebbers!
Nieuws update: Ik heb deze geweldige kans gekregen:
Nederlandse Pop en Jazz zangeres Caro Emerald heeft mij uitgenodigd om haar shows te openen in haar aankomende tour in Engeland, Schotland en Wales!
Na mijn debuut "Marbles" en mijn samenwerking met Perquisite "Lovestruck Puzzles" is de kans om mee te touren met zo'n succesvolle artiest voor mij echt iets waarvan ik alleen maar durfde dromen.
Het gaat om een hele mooie reeks concertzalen, zoals bijv. de London O2 en de Brighton Centre.
Ik hoop van harte, dat jullie mijn campagne om deze fantastische kans mogelijk te maken willen steunen!
Je kunt allerlei tegenprestaties selecteren, maar heb je zoiets van: “Ik steun Kris Berry graag om dit doel te bereiken en dus hoef ik geen tegenprestatie” :-) dan kan je ook gewoon boven de tegenprestaties 'steun dit project' selecteren.
Ontzettend bedankt voor jullie steun!!!! ;-)
