Anouk Biography


Anouk Teeuwe was born on 8 April 1975, in The Hague, Netherlands. As a teenager, she used drugs and ended up living in several care homes after she ran away from her family at the age of fourteen. Her interest in music was triggered through her mother, who was a blues singer. She gave her first performance at fifteen and sang at weddings and parties with the band Shotgun Wedding.

She started attending the Rotterdam Conservatory in 1994, but dropped out two years later. In the same period, her then-husband and manager Edwin Jansen introduced her to Golden Earring front man Barry Hay. Hay believed her to have talent and offered to write some songs for her. One of those songs was “Mood Indigo”; written in collaboration with fellow Golden Earring member George Kooymans.

After she met Bart van Veen, her co-writer, the pair wrote a few songs. On 5 September 1997, she released her second single, “Nobody’s Wife”, which remained at the top of the Dutch music charts for a number of weeks and was a hit in Norway and Sweden. Her debut album Together Alone turned out to be a huge success. In 1998, Anouk won two awards from Dutch music channel TMF in addition to an Edison Award.

Anouk biography

During the summer, she played at various festivals. Her second album Urban Solitude was released in November 1999, and included the single “R U Kiddin’ Me”. This song reached the Dutch Top 100. Shortly afterwards, she went to the United States to pursue a record deal. Negotiations with her American label (Sony) ended badly, causing her to return to the Netherlands without a deal. She released a new song, “Don’t”, and began touring the Netherlands in February 2001.

In March 2001, she released, Lost Tracks, which contained acoustic versions and B-sides from older songs, and various duets with K’s Choice singer Sam Bettens and The Anonymous Miss. She was awarded the Popprijs award in 2001. In November 2002, the album Graduated Fool was released. This was the heaviest rock album in Anouk’s career so far. She received a Golden Harp in 2003.

The following full-length release is called Hotel New York (2004) and yielded a total of four singles: “Girl”, “Lost”, “Jerusalem” and “One Word”. In 2006, she won the 3FM award for best Dutch female singer. In 2007, she released Who’s Your Momma, recorded with producer Glen Ballard. The first single, “Good God” was a success, and became a playable song in the video game Guitar Hero World Tour in 2008. In 2009, she released her album For Bitter or Worse. The song “Three Days in a Row” reached the first place in the Dutch charts.

Her album To Get Her Together was released in the Netherlands in May 2011. On 28 February 2011 she placed one of the new tracks on YouTube named “Killer Bee”. The first single of the album is called “Down & Dirty” and came out in April. On 27 June, she released her single “I’m a Cliché”.

On 17 September 2011 “Save Me” was released as third single from the album. The fourth single is “What Have You Done”. Anouk performed at the GelreDome in Arnhem for her To Get Her Together Tour on 8 and 11 March 2012.


She first revealed that she would be taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 on 17 October 2012 via a post on Facebook, after negotiations with broadcaster TROS.

Anouk performed “Birds” in the first semi-final on 14 May, where she progressed to the final on 18 May and eventually reached 9th place there with her song “Birds”.

The Dutch broadly perceived her result to be a major achievement, as it was the best Eurovision result for the Netherlands in 14 years and the first time in 9 years that any Dutch entrant had qualified for the final of the contest. Her backing singer, Shirma Rouse, was named best backing singer by The Eurovision Times. Anouk wrote the 2015 Dutch entry “Walk Along”, performed by Trijntje Oosterhuis, along with Swedish songwriter Tobias Karlsson.

She was a coach on The Voice of Holland for seasons 6 and 8 through 12 before resigning in January 2022 as a result of sexual misconduct allegations beleaguering the show.

In 2016, Anouk released two albums: Queen for a Day, which included the lead single “Run Away Together”, in March and Fake It Till We Die in late October. In 2018, Anouk released her first Dutch-language album Wen d’r maar aan.
