Paperclip Agency’s Hilde Spille is profiling herself not only as a booking agent, but also with her blog Compass for Creatives and her engagement for mental health as well as for a better position of women in the music business. In May she is invited by TAMK, the university of Tampere (FIN), to hold the workshop “International mindset: use boundaries to break borders”. Later in May she is invited by RUG, the university of Groningen (NLD), for a lecture during the symposium “Exploring gender dynamics in the music industry“. Hilde’s lecture is entitled: “How setting boundaries can improve the gender balance in the live music business”.

British pop/art-rock legends 10cc lead by co-founder Graham Gouldman will come to The Netherlands in April 2020 for a series of nine shows in theatres across the country.
10cc are known for worldwide hits such as The Wall Street Shuffle, I’m Not In Love, and Dreadlock Holiday.
The band promises to deliver even more than before with an extended set, with more wonderful songs from 10cc‘s rich history.
For details on the nine shows, see below.

Beginning of May, Canadian rock-diva Sass Jordan will come to the Netherlands again. The five shows include a performance at Rhythm & Blues Night in Groningen. Sass Jordan is known from her hit-songs “Make You A Believer”, “High Road Easy”, and many more. For her raspy voice she is often compared to Janis Joplin. Together with Joe Cocker she can be heard on the soundtrack of the movie “The Bodyguard” from 1992.
The support act during the tour is Chris Caddell and the Wreckage. Chris is one of the best guitar players from Canada. See below for a list of all dates.

Hazmat Modine will visit the Netherlands for 2 shows, in May and June. The new album “Box of Breath” will be released beginning of May via Jaro Medien/Music&Words. The title song of their debut album “Bahamut” from 2006 was used by Wim Wenders in his film “Pina”. The new album of the New York band continues with a remarkable mix of genres and the use of many instruments, such as sousaphone, various horns and various strings. The band brings together blues, jazz, country, rhythm & blues, gospel and world music. The theme of the album is humanity and mortality. Hazmat Modine will come to the Netherlands for two shows: on May 23 in Nijmegen and on June 19 in Groningen.

Anarcho-punk-rockers Subhumans (those from the U.K.) will play Haltpop Festival (just north of Amsterdam) on Sat. July 21.
Subhumans started out in 1980, and we here at Paperclip Agency helped them get their gigs in The Netherlands in the eighties. Can’t wait to see them play live again, at Haltpop!
