Biography

Apeldoorn, The Netherlands (2008 – present)

Waylon (born 20 April 1980), is a singer from Apeldoorn, The Netherlands who became second in the Dutch television show ‘Holland’s Got Talent’ in 2008. In an interview he said he specifically chose this talent-show, because you immediately have a response from the audience, unlike Idols or X-Factor. “You can’t fool the audience”.

He is the first Dutch artist to be signed to Motown Records in 2009.

His debut album titled “Wicked Ways” was released on August 28 2009. It became platinum (it sold more than 50.000 copies) in The Netherlands. His debut single “Wicked Way” has been picked up by MTV and was the Radio 538 ‘Alarmschijf’. His second album, titled “After All” was released on November 4th, 2011.

In 2014 he and singer Ilse DeLange took part in the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen as the Dutch entry. They formed the duo The Common Linnets and sang the country/bluegrass song “Calm After the Storm”. They came second with a total of 238 points behind Conchita Wurst from Austria. The song features on their debut album “The Common Linnets”, which was released in may 2014.

Waylon last performed with Delange at a concert on June 21, 2014 in Enschede, following which he left The Common Linnets in order to focus on his solo career. He released his third studio album “Heaven After Midnight” in september of the same year.

    Geweldige stem heeft deze man. Nummers zijn wel aardig, maar met een modernere Dozier/Holland/Dozier of Strong/Whitfield zou hij echt alles er uit kunnen halen.

    Waylooonnn. <3 Saw him live, AMAZING. Haven't seen talent like this in the last 5 years. He loves what he is doing, sings like it's realy nothing to him, he enjoys and entertains the audience like no other. A real artist, as an artist should be. I have no doubt, this man will be known all over the world in no time. If not, the world doesn't know what real music is like.

    True production could be more in your face and bolder. But nevertheless, this guy does have a bright future ahead of him!

    Veels te weinig shouts hier eigenlijk, kom op zeg! Tis toch een top zanger!

    Not all Dutch contemporary music fits in like Caro Emerald's. Laura Jansen lacks vibe, Lisa Lois fades to the background, and this guy's music lacks any decent production.
