About Duncan Laurence
Duncan Laurence was born in 1994 in Spijkenisse, The Netherlands. He graduated this year from the Rock Academy in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Here he developed himself as a singer, songwriter and also music producer. Besides that, he spent a lot of time writing songs in London and Stockholm.
In recent years, The Netherlands have turned around a negative string of results in a string of positive results with multiple qualifications for the final. However, their televote was disappointing in the last two years. According to Dutch commentator Cornald Maas, this was the main reason to choose for a newcomer this year. “We wanted to focus on the song, more than on choosing an established artist.”
