Biography

Jan-Bart 'JB' Meijers (born Delft, The Netherlands, 1972) is a Dutch musician and record producer.

Throughout the 1990s, Meijers played in Dutch indie bands such as Charmin' Children (1990-1993), Shine (1993-1996) and Supersub (1996-1999). Critical acclaim aplenty, but none of Meijers' indie bands achieved lasting commercial success.

Fed up with the dogmas of the indie circuit, Meijers decided to focus on his work as a record producer. He worked with Dutch artists such as Daryll-Ann, Tröckener Kecks, De Dijk and Acda & De Munnik.

The latter two bands - two of the most succesful Dutch-language acts - asked Meijers (a prolific guitarist and multi-instrumentalist) to join them. Meijers played guitar in De Dijk for many years. As of 2014, he is core member of The Netherlands' highly succesful Eurovision Song Contest entry, The Common Linnets, the group that brought him international glory.

2010 saw the release of Meijers' long overdue solo début, Catching Ophelia, which he recorded with musical friends such as Wouter Planteijdt of Sjako! and Ken Stringfellow of The Posies. His second solo outing, entitled The Secret Year, came out in 2013.

In 2019 Meijers recorded a covers album entitled For You Baby with Barry Hay of Golden Earring, credited to Barry Hay & JB Meijers.
