Eventually they were signed by EMI and album 'Panama' hit the stores May 2006 and debuted at 30. Three singles were released; 'Swim With Sam' (May '06),'Fortune Teller' (August '06) and 'Robin II' (February '07). In September 2006 they were surprisingly nominated for a TMF Award (kind of like the MTV Awards, TMF is the Dutch part of the company MTV) as 'best newcomer'. Unfortunately a balladeer didn't win the award.
2006 is a big year in the history of a balladeer, because they planned their first solo-tour through the Netherlands. Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and several other cities are being honored with a visit of a balladeer. In February 2007 a balladeer won a Zilveren Harp and in April the band was nominated for a 3FM Award in the category Best Newcomer. Later that year Marinus, Tijs and Erik started working on their second album titled 'Where Are You, Bambi Woods?'. It is due on 1 September 2008.
First single is called 'Mary Had A Secret'. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
