Based in Rotterdam Birgit de Priester writes under the alias St. Maane.
She grew up in a household of Tom Waits and Lou Reed, which reflects in her narrative songwriting and singing.
“Fascinating combination of dark poetry and an intimate voice.” (Juryrapport Grote Prijs)
St. Maane moves somewhere in between the melodic folk a la Haley Heynderickx and the dark narrative poetry a la Nick Cave.
St. Maane toured through the Netherlands (Popronde 2018), Iceland, Denmark and Sicily.
Currently recording her debut album.
For fans of Aldous Harding, Big Thief, Haley Heynderickx, Michelle Gurevich.
“Tender yet very strong.”

“St. Maane dares to explore the beautiful depths of the dark(…) a top quality act!”
