About Us

Lakeside Stories is an organisation for Singer/Songwriters and people who enjoy original music. It is currently run by Chris James (Wales) and Laurens Reij (The Netherlands) both of which are Singer/Songwriters themselves. There are a number of activities under the Lakeside Stories banner. 

We organise singer-songwriter events are various locations in The Netherlands.

From time to time we release compilation and promotionals CDs containing tracks from various singer-songwriter acts.

We have a booking process for house concerts.

We have a recording studio well equiped for acoustic  recordings

The Lakeside Stories concept is simple but effective. “Put something in, and get something out” We offer a stage where talented singer-songwriters can perform to a receptive audience. What do you get in return? A quality live audio recording of the performance, a video clip, radio coverage and publicity on our website and in the local media.

If you are a talented singer/songwriter, passing through Holland and looking for a stage to perform on, please fill in the form under the SIGNUP tab on this website. This will automatically send an email which we can easily locate when are programming new events. We cant promise that we can fit everyone in as we are highly critical in our selection process.
