Biography Hanne de Vries
“What I hope to achieve with my music is that everyone who hears it also experiences something about God Himself. God is the source of life, my creator, the foundation of everything. I just sing and testify.”
Hanne de Vries is a musician and worship leader from The Netherlands who loves to connect people with Jesus through his music. Being heavily influenced by (the early) Hillsong United and Martin Smith, his music contains both big rock songs as well intimate ballads. Having played at all the big Christian festivals in Holland for years, Hanne is an established artist within the Dutch Christian scene, especially for teenagers and youngsters.
Hanne just finished the Not A Fairytale Tour, named after his 5th album Not A Fairytale. This tour, groundbreaking regarding production and storytelling, was a great success and reached many young people with the love and message of Jesus. Especially the title song Not A Fairytale has been received really well.
Co-writes with incredible songwriters
A big step for Hanne’s career was the release of his 4th album Favour in 2016. Having worked with producers from UK Jorge Mhondera (LZ7, Matt Redman) and Willie Weeks (Matt Redman, Worship Central, Jake Isaac) and being mixed in Nashville by Grammy Award winner Ainslie Grosser (Newsboys, For King and Country, Chris Tomlin) Hanne caught international attention resulting in a tour in India (2017) and several concerts throughout Europe. This album contains hit songs like Love Revolution, Breaking News and Like You Do and has co-writes with some incredible songwriters like Chris Eaton (who has written for M.W. Smith, Amy Grant, Cliff Richard) and Ben Cantelon (Tim Hughes, Worship Central).

Although Hanne is mostly active within churches and Christian festivals, his music is not typically described as worship. Hanne likes to push the musical boundaries and dares to go places where others haven’t been yet. Hanne wants to help people to experience the presence of God and give them the hope and joy that we have in Christ.
