Pukekawa school girl Anouk Van Dijk has taken out her second national competition for 2017 winning the AMS® Music, NZ Music Month competition with her song “99 Days”. Set to record her second single she will be mentored and recording with Troy Kelly from The Armoury and STL Audio in Wellington.
The 13 year old singer, songwriter started writing songs just over 18 months ago. Anouk’s songs are written straight from her heart about things, people, places and moments that are special to her, “no one judges you through songs and it’s a way of letting it all out”.
With soaring vocals, a clever composition and catchy hook, Anouk is already showing promise in the NZ music industry and is a testament to young and original talent.
Earlier this year Anouk was the winner of the Hook, Line, and Sing-A-Long with her song “Cape Reinga” which has since been recorded at Roundhead Studios in Auckland with NZ Music Commission mentor Possum Plows (Openside). Her track went on to be used as a teaching resource for NZ Music Month in May.
