Hi, I’m Kreem. I taught myself guitar at 17, inspired by two extremes; The Smashing Pumpkins and John Mayer. Composed a lot for others but turned to writing my own music to vent after a tough breakup. In 2021 I released my first EP, inspired by Gotye, Emily King, and Post Malone. I just love to blend classic steady singer/songwriter vibes with modern pop, using 80’s synths and vintage drum machines.

Hope you enjoy “Diamond,” my new summer release, celebrating the vibrant chaos of life. Release date: July 19, 2024.

Vibrant summer track: Diamond

Kreem’s “Diamond” is an uptempo, vibrant summer track exploring life with undiagnosed ADD. This energetic indie song portrays his journey from inner turmoil to personal growth, supported by a patient partner. Comparing himself to a rough diamond, Kreem strives for improvement, but embraces imperfections.

Inspired by artists such as Gotye, Emily King and Post Malone, his music dynamically blends elements of introverted singer/songwriter and alternative pop with today’s modern in-your-face pop sound. His love for analogue, which he shares with producer Mark van Bruggen, can be heard throughout his music: with the sound of 80’s synthesizers, vintage drum computers and even a ‘singing saw’ Kreem managed to craft his own unique sound.
“This song describes the transition into a new phase of my personal life where I was first headed nowhere while being petrified. Through honest introspection I had an epiphany which helped me to start flourishing towards a better version of myself. At the same time, this song moves me as a new musical chapter in which I have found my own true sound without making any concessions for the first time in my life.”
Kreem about the song "That Guy"
Kreems debut EP 'Arrow' was released in 2021. With melodic, warm and vibrant songs with a poppy feel, he takes you on a trip through his thoughts and feelings. The tracks are packed with passion and enthusiasm and convey genuine emotional resonance. They are personal and emotional yet filled with vitality and joy of life, making the songs true pick-me-ups.
