On this page, an overview of my original songs & compositions can be found. I’ve been writing pop & rock songs my whole life, mostly for my (former) bands 21 Eyes of Ruby, Waking Skies, The New Habit, Black Wish, etc.
In 2016, I started to write more jazz/fusion influenced originals for my DrummerMartijn videos on Youtube. At first, these productions were (mostly) one-man shows: not only did I compose, arrange & perform the songs, but I also recorded, mixed & mastered the audio productions and filmed, edited & graded the accompanying videos. In 2018, I’ve formed DrummerMartijn Project to be able to perform these songs live.
Here’s a selection of my songs & compositions, written for various bands. All music & lyrics by me, unless otherwise noted.
