Between Cities is an exciting new Modern Rockband led by Nick Jongejan and Gijs de Waal, both seasoned musicians with a shared history in their former band, ‘The Young River’. After years of hard work, they arrived at a crossroads in their musical career and made the bold choice to continue as a duo under the name ‘Between Cities’. Returning to their Rock roots. Their music is influenced by Post-hardcore, Emo and Popbands such as Holding Absence, Dayseeker & 30 Seconds To Mars. Their catchy tracks portray vulnerability and self-reflection, offering a glimpse into their inner world shared with the outside.

Nick and Gijs are known as the good guys, living the good life. For them, making music is more than just a passion or profession; it's a lifestyle. They strongly believe in creating music as best friends. Their ultimate dream is to make a living from their music and spread their message through large-scale worldwide tours.

Driven by renewed determination and a shared vision, Nick and Gijs are resolute in seizing the best life has to offer and avoiding regrets from missed opportunities. Their music represents their friendship and is a reflection of their journey to be themselves and maximize life's potential.

Now, here's why we know Between Cities could be very interesting:

  • DIY Vibes: We can handle the nitty-gritty ourselves if we are talking producing and writing music. Not only does it mean low production costs, but it makes us very flexible on this part as well.

  • Dynamic Duo: We're a duo, not a whole band, which is a win-win. It's easier on the wallet, and it's easier to organize tours with fewer people on the road.

  • No-Fuss Support Act: As a duo, we're pretty easy to work with. On tour our setup can be pretty minimal which could make us the ideal support act. 

  • THIS IS WHAT WE WANT: We're very dedicated to each other and this project. We're willing to put aside an awful lot to achieve our goals. 

  • Not to forget: We're awesome dudes! :)
