Ar-Jane is the alias of Arjanne Beukers, an ambitious twenty-two-year-old singer-songwriter from a small town in the south of The Netherlands. Known for her sensitive, dreamy voice and honest lyrics, she creates pop music with a melancholic sound.

Her career started back in 2016, when she wrote her first song and performed for the first time. In the years that followed she participated in several Dutch music competitions like Kunstbende, where she won the regional finals. ‘’Goosebumps’’ was the jury’s respond. That’s exactly what she wants to achieve with her music, so for Ar-Jane that was the turning point where she became confident that this is what she had to do with her life.

For Ar-Jane, it’s all about the message and being able to look in the mirror. She hopes her words and melancholic melodies offer people some comfort. Just like her inspirations Phoebe Bridgers, Lana del Rey and Aurora did for her.

After a couple of years performing successfully with just vocals and piano, she founded a band to support her on stage. They create a unique sound, combining organic instruments and some subtle electronic elements here and there, with Ar-Jane’s voice as the focus point. Ar-Jane carries you away into her world with just a glimpse and these musicians give her characteristic purity even more depth.

Currently, she’s studying vocals at the Rockacademie in Tilburg. In 2020 she won Frontstage, a competition for musicians, allowing her to perform at well-known festivals in Limburg in the summer of 2021 and 2022.

Keep an eye on her, since she’s in the studio with her band this summer.  New music is on its way.
