Lena Hessels


Her father Terrie is The Ex’s guitarist, mother Emma played violin and they both run the adventurous Terp label. Last November Lena released debut 'Billow', recorded in the Witte Villa, where she grew up in the midst of music. Musicians like Han Bennink, Sonic Youth, Konono No.1, Getatchew Mekuria & many more stayed in the house regulary.

When she finished high school, she was determined to make a record. She ‘locked’ herself up in the top room where she started a little studio. After 3 weeks writing, practising, recording and recording again, she was finished.
Now she’s already working on a new release!
