Jelle Paulusma is a Dutch musician, singer, songwriter and producer who gained prominence in the Dutch indie scene as frontman of the band Daryll-Ann (1988-2004), with which he recorded six studio albums and toured internationally in the 1990s. After he quit Daryll-Ann in 2004 he started writing & recording his solo albums. Paulusma's 4th album, called 'Pulling Weeds' was released through Excelsior Recordings in November 2014. The album was already finished in June 2013, but stalled for a while because of the rather successful reunion tour with his old band in 2014.
Some notes on Paulusma's older work:
Paulusma resurfaced with an experimental and rather dark solo album entitled Here We Are (2006).
The second Paulusma studio album, 2008’s IRECORD, was generally received by music critics as a pleasant surprise: a lush, more melodic, graciously arranged album with a distinct sixties/westcoast pop feel.
The third Paulusma studio album, Up On The Roof, which was released in 2011 through PIAS in the Netherlands, is in some ways closest to the music he wrote for his former band Daryll-Ann. Up On The Roof shows Paulusma's endless love for classic popmusic, and he took the opportunity to re-record a song he wrote for Daryll-Ann almost 20 years ago.
Besides his expanding solo career Paulusma has been a composer of music for commercials and documentary films for the past decade.
