VASELYNE is a collaboration between Dutch singer Yvette Winkler and Dutch musician and producer Frank Weyzig. A mutual artistic curiosity gave birth to their VASELYNE project in the spring of 2011. One can safely assume that to hold tenure in VASELYNE, you’d best exhibit the deepest level of commitment to what the band stands for. Influenced by bands like Porcupine Tree and Blackfield, Vaselyne could remain one of ambient-alternative rock’s most intelligent and gifted technical bands.
The departed personnel that have been assumedly ground to bits within VASELYNE tells a story in itself. Yvette Winkler was co-founder of Dutch band “Sea of Souls” (2006). You can listen to her latest work on Pieter Nooten’s album “Here is Why” (2010), for which she sang some of the lead- and backing vocals. Frank Weyzig is a Dutch producer, composer and band member, known for his contribution to the original “Clan of Xymox” and his work for indie new wave band “Born For Bliss”.
As always, VASELYNE continues to innovate upon their unique form of art-ambient/alternative and, at the end of the day, its actually the ease with which VASELYNE serves up this versatility, making the music go by in a flash. During Live performances VASELYNE will be joined on stage by Rina Vervoort (flute & keys) and Einar Ihle (violin & keys).
VASELYNE has released four albums on German label Echozone and now also available on Turmoil Music: ‘Earthbound’ EP (2012), their full length debut album ‘The Fire Within’ (2013), ‘In Dreams’ EP (2015) and ‘Fragile’ EP (2016).
