Joshua Lutz


In Paradiso

With The Nest, four or five emerging artists are invited annually to come together and make new music over the course of seven days in BIRD. They present the result of their work at least three times to the public: first during a try-out, the second time during the premiere at BIRDfest, and the third time during North Sea Round Town festival.

To ensure that music continues to develop, The Nest invests in the development of local makers. They facilitate a place where the makers can come together, co-create and experiment with artistic ideas. They build a community where artists are encouraged and supported to discover and experiment musically. With The Nest, they aim to facilitate new collaborations, new developments and new music in the jazz, hip-hop and electronic scene and they want to achieve this by bringing together a very diverse group of artists. This year Joshua Lutz, Joop de Graaf, Tallulah Rose and Siegfried Hart are part of The Nest.


Keyboardist Joshua Lutz, also known by his alias Halfpastseven, is making a name for himself in the international producer community because of his jazz approach to creating instrumental beats. The carefully chosen chord progressions, his laid-back attitude and catchy melodies are the toestenist’s trademarks.
