Bente Fokkens has been writing and performing since she was eleven years old. This young start of her musical career resulted in the documentary 'Bente's Voice', several performances at 'De Wereld Draait Door', a participation in 'The Voice Kids' and a performance at 'Into The Great Wide Open'. Besides making music Bente starts as an actress. She plays the lead in the film "Kappen!", plays in the hit series "Soof 2" and can be seen in the popular (film) series "Misfit".
In 2019 things are going to change. Bente starts writing music in Dutch and signs with Top Notch. In early 2020, Bente releases her first EP called 'Liefste, Ken Je Mij', with which she was seen live at 'M' on NPO 1 and could be heard on various radio stations.
As a sequel to her first EP, her second EP will be released at the end of 2021. For this project Bente works again with producer Tom Meijer and writer Okke Punt, who we know from his work with Snelle and Maan among others.
As a prelude to the new project, the singles 'Ga Maar', 'Met Je Zijn' and 'Nee is Nee' with Maan were released earlier in 2021. The latter was seen live with Beau on RTL4 and heard on 538.
With her booking at Eurosonic Noorderslag in 2021 Bente showed that she is ready to go on stage. This summer Bente was a regular guest at the shows of Maan and she would play her own show at Paaspop. In 2022 Bente was again seen at Eurosonic Noorderslag and she will go on tour with her fresh sound.
