William Seen's Transport Music


Once, somewhere around 2004, there was a man, who thought it was time to show the world around him his songs. His name is Egbert van der Werff. He had written a bunch and entered a songwriter-contest in the local pub. He won. Then he went through to a bigger city to play and he won again. Then he asked a friend to play with him in the final show in Amsterdam and he didn’t win. Was it the friend? No, it wasn’t. The friend, Rene Monsma, added sonorous vocals and subtle guitar and made the songs complete. It just wasn’t their time yet. Read more on Last.fm
Once, somewhere around 2004, there was a man, who thought it was time to show the world around him his songs. His name is Egbert van der Werff. He had written a bunch and entered a songwriter-contest in the local pub. He won.

Then he went through to a bigger city to play and he won again. Then he asked a friend to play with him in the final show in Amsterdam and he didn’t win. Was it the friend? No, it wasn’t. The friend, Rene Monsma, added sonorous vocals and subtle guitar and made the songs complete.

It just wasn’t their time yet. They asked a friend, Janpeter Hoekstra, to play with them. And they asked another one, Gilbert Terpstra. And then they had a band.

Two guitars, bass, drums and three voices. Bluntly you can file it under Westcoast pop; the music is blissfully melodious. Sure, think the 4 B’s (Beatles, Beach Boys, Byrds, Big Star), why not? But add 70s classic rock and 90s alt-rock, rounded off by lush harmony vocal stacks. You might find a lost pedal steel guitar too.

Present in the minds of the four is their mutual love for pop song craft, where Egbert and Janpeter are the song manufacturers and Rene is close to further refining the sound and arrangements, Gilbert’s drumming blends perfectly with the band’s creating process. Listen to the consummate three-minute popsong “Walk Around Oblivious” and you know instantly what WSTM is all about. They made a demo, recorded at Frans Hagenaars’ studio in Weesp, which was critically acclaimed by some pop journalists (OOR’s Demo of the month Sept 2006), local bookers. More recordings were planned intending to make a full record.

Due to the move of Egbert to Canada in 2006 things were slightly put on a hold, although additional recordings and mixing of the songs continued. In the next years they occasionally played live and finished songs, however, due to Egbert’s absence and side-projects at a much slower pace. Still, William Seen’s Transport Music resisted chucking up the sponge. In 2010 Egbert moved back to Holland and the band resumed finishing the record, demo-ing new songs.

Much to frustration of the band members, the final mixing of the long recorded list of songs was postponed again, however, September 2010 three new songs saw the light in Hans Hanneman’s Twangwolf Studio and new recordings were planned for feb 2011. 2012: It’s nice to see that band and fans are still stickin’ together. This year of 2012 finally brings William Seen’s Transport Music out of the shadowy corners and into the shiny spot where they belong! After all… slow but steady wins the race… Read more on Last.fm.
