Biography

Neeka (Ilse Goovaerts) is a Belgian singer-songwriter. She started her music career in music school, when she was eight. Her first album was released in 1999, when she was 28. Before that she played church organ, bought a guitar, took singing lessons and founded a cover band, which played songs from the Indigo Girls, 10.000 Maniacs and Suzanne Vega.

She made her first album together with Roland Van Campenhout, Lange Polle (Wolf Banes, Triggerfinger) and Bart De Nolf (a jazz bassist). For this album she recorded a cover of Tom Robinson’s ‘Listen to the radio’. The English singer was so glad with the result that he came to Belgium to perform with her. He also received a contract at the same record company (Oyster records).

In 2002 she made a second album called ‘Candy Comfort’. This albums contains the, in Belgium rather popular single, ‘Don’t hold me back’. She recorded this song together with Stef Kamil Carlens (dEUS, Moondog Jr., Zita Swoon).

For her third album (Women Wonderland - 2006) she wanted to use a different approach. She found the solution in the use of not so all day instruments. For instance the musicians used a fortepiano, a clavichord, a Flemish harpsichord and a Jacobus Van Eynde organ. In that period she also became a mother which resulted in the song ‘My last days as a girl’.

Her fourth album is called ‘Robin’ and saw the light in 2009. It contains the singles ‘Carsong’ and ‘Believe’.
