Amsterdam, Netherlands

Judith Katrijntje “Trijntje” Oosterhuis (born February 5, 1973) is a Dutch pop and jazz singer.

True artistry is often based on great talent. Mostly though it’s about hard work and personal growth. And that’s exactly what Trijntje Oosterhuis is all about. Her Dutch name, phonetically in English is close to: ‘Train-cha Oyster-house’; and she introduces herself with her first name in English as ‘Train-cha’.

For years Trijntje fronted Total Touch, one of the most popular and best-selling pop groups ever in Dutch musical history. Their unique blend of pop, soul and R&B, with state-of-the-art performance, writing and production by co-founder and her older brother Tjeerd P. Oosterhuis, was something totally unheard of at the time in the Netherlands. It will perhaps come as no surprise that Trijntje and Tjeerd come from a musically endowed family. Father Huub Oosterhuis, a former priest, is the foremost church music lyricist in the Netherlands, and mother Josefien Melief is an extremely gifted and accomplished concert violinist.

The onset of her breakthrough for the wider audience within Holland, was her singing the opening anthem called ‘De Zee’ (The Sea) in front of 60,000 invited guests and for millions of TV-viewers during the official opening ceremony of the brand new soccer stadium in Amsterdam in 1996; soccer being the most popular sports in Holland, hence its widely promoted opening gala on national TV.
