Jelka van Houten - First the Benelux.... then the World!

The debut album of Amsterdam's Jelka van Houten is now available outside the Benelux region!  August 25 is the official launch of "Hard Place for a Dreamer"  and now the rest of the world can enjoy the 12 sweet and sincere songs which give the term "singer/songwriter" a good name.  Dutch fans know Jelka from numerous movie and television appearances yet "sight unseen", she has also drawn the praises of numerous music veterans in Nashville and Memphis. 




Jelka - The Next Chapter.

Like a book, each album has it chapters. "Hard Place for a Dreamer" is both the next chapter and the sequel to first single "Time Flies". Finally bowing to complaints that title track "Hard Place for a Dreamer" should be the focus for Jelka, it is a pleasure for Zip Records to release and further expose the song on 4 October. The album of the same name contains 11 other wistful, romantic and heart throbbing tunes. Jelka is also starring in the movie Waldstille and in tv show Jeuk in the Netherlands.

Jelka van Houten is a singer-songwriter unlike any other in Amsterdam. A shot of Tammy Wynette with the persona of Dolly Parton and the appeal of Tisha Yearwood. And then some.....
