Jan Rot
Dutch singer, composer, poet, columnist and writer. Initially started out as a singer in bands Easybeats and Ratata, but it wasn’t before long he went solo. In the early years he had some minor hits like Counting Sheep. Over the course of the years he turned to writing (and singing) in his native tongue, Dutch, and turned into a celebrated translator of international hits, resulting in sharp, and oftentimes funny, lyrics
