If you don’t know him you’re missing out. His music is addictive. We dare you to listen to his songs a few times in a row. You’ll see. But there’s more to him than good songs. His very person leaves us wanting more… Once you’ve had a taste you can’t shake him: he’s charming, posh, exotic and sexy. His name is Van Hechter, and please do yourselves a favor and look him up!
We asked him 5 questions…
You’re releasing a single with an artist named Sainte Croix on May 15th, then a full EP with Eryck Wyseman on June 1st… How would you differentiate the two projects?
A:With Eryck it’s like going to the office knowing all will go smoothly- no matter what trouble we may encounter. We’ve worked together for 7 years now. This new EP ‘‘Hot Damn’’ is our best to date because we know each other so well…
Sainte Croix is a whole other vibe. I’ve known him since I was 16. We reunited last June. There’s a craziness- a very positive craziness in our collaboration. Our single is entitled ”My Kind o’ People” and I think it will make people dance- which of course is our goal!
You’ll launch your EP in Manhattan then tour in Paris. Do you like the French?
A:Well I am half French myself- nationality and all!!! I like the young French, very much. And that’s all you’ll get out of me on that topic LOL!
Fashion wise, what should we expect from you next?
A:Well this time around I’ve a hairy chest and tattooed legs, my stache is thicker and I’ve let my hair grow a bit on the top of my head- was tired of the super short crop. Of course, I’ll still wear suits for performances. But I’m having a lot of fun with baggy jeans and dress pants. I love the wide leg these days.
Do you want to be liked?
No darling. I want to be adored. If you only ”like” me. That ain’t enough.
