This intimate chamber music setting consists of the two top musicians Ed Verhoeff and Paul Berner.

The strength of this duo lies in the simplicity and the line play of the guitar with the double bass that
fuse into one instrument. Starting from jazz, the duo is inspired by classical music, Americana, folk pop and Brazilian music. Both Ed and Paul are known for their lyrical and sensitive playing and are both able to sound like a vocalist. In this way they find each other and complement each other. Melodies get attention, there is beauty but also tension, friction. They musically go in search of the surprise. The music breathes, fascinates and comes very close. The duo Up Close is an experience and leaves an unforgettable impression
