Members: Van Risseghem
Van Risseghem (pronounced: van - riss - egg - hem) is a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA.
In 2009, Van Risseghem debuted with The Motions. This self-produced 9 track album quickly grew in popularity due to critical press acclaim and worldwide licensing features. Most notably, the album's title track was chosen as Delta Airlines' boarding theme song for international and domestic flights and also featured in nationwide AMC and Cinemark Theaters. The opening track, "Love, Again", was also recently featured in the 2nd season of Comedy Central's "Tosh.0". Van Risseghem supported many well known artists such as Cake, Metro Station, Rooney, Meg and Dia, and American Idol winner Kris Allen.
He Is No Stranger (a holiday EP) was released later that year. Straying from the typical sing-along with a sleighbell style Christmas releases that come from most artists, He Is No Stranger was well received for its highly innovative compositions.
Van Risseghem has spent most of 2010 completing his follow-up full-length Passenger. This album showcases some of Van Risseghem's best songwriting to date and promises to be worth the wait. The first single, "The River" releases October 26 and was written for the "Filter For Good Canada" commercial that aired earlier this year. While an official release date for Passenger has not yet been set, you can be sure to catch a sneak peak at vanriss.com
