Hi everyone!
We are making good progress on the live release! Audio has been mixed! Video is in progress and once I know more I will let you know. 
Once again, I want to use this opportunity to thank you all for being involved and making this possible. 
See you soon, hopefully on tour or online!
de groeten, vänliga hälsningar, lämpimin terveisin and all the best,
Floor

RTL XL - Jinek • Afl. 44

Don't know if this can be viewed everywhere but Floor and Henk were present in the Dutch talkshow of "Eva Jinek" 

Starting after approx 45 min. Nice promotion for the current Henk Poort shows and about the magic connection between Floor and Henk. For us nothing news, accept the ambition from Floor to release her first own single early 2022.

🤘

It works, as long as one creates a free account. 👍

Single! Looking forward to see what style she will choose for her solo album. I expect a softer side of Floor, more Beste Zangers than Northward or reVamp. But except for saying that it won't be like what she already does, Floor gave very little clues!

Edit: Wow, it's weird seeing Julia, Elizabeth, Rebecca and those other reactors on Dutch TV!

A few recordings from Floor guest singing at Henk Poort's shows in Amsterdam (from the 2021-11-10 gig).

Vilja Lied - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUR1BwCJ1VY

Dangerous Game - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nWaExgSjOE

Phantom Of The Opera - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhF-wVOeGM4

Great performance of the Phantom, once again! 😲

 

Floor mentioned on her YouTube channel that she is recording a demo for her upcoming solo album. Also, she is still working on a proper fan club, no word on the platform though (Patreon? a custom website?).

An update on the live recordings:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/floor-jansen-digital-live-release

 

IT'S HAPPENING!!

It has taken longer than it should but tomorrow the first song will go live on YouTube (2PM CET)! 
In the description of the video will be a link to an unlisted video where you can find all of you credited!

You can already find the video here: https://youtu.be/PTrZK810W4c

Our plan is to release a song every 1 or 2 weeks. This is due to the editing team delivering us the final result on a song per song basis and we felt we could let you wait any longer. After all songs are released, we'll release the full show as one video as well with the credits attached to the end.
The credits will also be added to the documentary. We also intend to release it as an album on.

All in all, it seems like the journey is slowly starting to come to an end. Nearly two years after the initial funding we are releasing it. Delay after delay, we're getting there.  Thank you for believing in me and my team.

Below a screencap of tomorrow's video, which will be in full 4K glory! Have a great weekend!

That was a nice performance of Ever Dream! The arrangement is a bit mellower but all in all a satisfying performance. So I take it that the songs will be released in the setlist order for the next 20 weeks or so. For reference here's the September 3, 2021 show setlist:

It's nice that we will have pro recordings of two Nightwish songs that either haven't been performed live (Our Decades In The Sun) or haven't been recorded for DVD (Slow, Love, Slow). 👍

An update from Floor:

First Song & Documentary Live!

And so it has begun! The first video out and next week the second will arrive, "Storm in a Glass"! Hope you all like it and have found your name in the credits! 

On top of this, you all know we were able to fund a small documentary as well, which ended up being recorded by my very own Hannes Van Dahl! This will be released for everybody around Christmas, but you, my funders, see it first right now! 

It's a short 15 minute documentary, but it's well filmed and touching, and spends some time filming the fans themselves. As mentioned, will be available to everyone shortly.

Nice to hear live versions of these Northward songs that would otherwise live only as studio tracks! The mid-song bridge-solo is a bit soft compared to the original but again this is probably intentional as the audience is comprised of many new fans who only know of her Beste Zangers stuff.

For reference, this is the original Northward track and lyric video:

Next up from the Amsterdam show is "Nemo", an acoustic version very reminiscent of the Imaginaerum tour version with Jukka pounding at his drum box "between his legs" as Marko would put it! 😁

Here's the band version for academic purposes, Orlando 2012: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT6bbuMnPwM

I must say that I prefer Emppu's solo, but Emppu is Emppu.

The behind-the-scenes documentary is now available to everyone, along with an explanation about why it is shorter than what was promised.

Hi everyone! Here a small documentary recorded by Hannes Van Dahl, recorded at my final solo show at AFAS Live, Amsterdam! This video was made possible by the crowdfunders who funded the crowdfunding campaign to record this show in 3 hours. I dedicate this video to all of you, my fans, for being there with me. Enjoy!

This video was a bonus goal for the crowdfunding campaign. Due to all extra costs related to having to move the shows multiple times, and also turning it into 3 shows instead of 1 big show we were unable to make a longform documentary. We had to move production companies multiple times for example. All extra costs and investment mostly went into the show recording.

A huge thank you to all crowdfunders who made this possible 👉 https://youtu.be/PTrZK810W4c

This was really well done. Henk seems to be having fun too.

I kind of admire Henk's willingness to step out of his comfort zone and do these shows with Floor. The thing I regret the most about the postponement of the Nightwish shows in Amsterdam is missing the chance for Henk to join Floor on stage to sing The Phantom Of The Opera with Nightwish. It was their best chance, because with Marko gone I don't see that song be played again with the whole band. Will Henk be available next year? Will there still be any interest? Who knows.
