Karlijn Langendijk was born in 1995 and grew up in Uitgeest, The Netherlands. Surrounded by acoustic guitar music since birth, she started playing the guitar at the age of 13 inspired by her father. She writes her own music, fascinated by fingerstyle guitar and classical and modern concert music. She played on stage with guitarists like Tommy Emmanuel and Peter Finger and toured in Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic and China.
Together with acoustic guitarist Tim Urbanus, she released her debut duo album “Leap of Faith” in 2015 at the renowned label “Acoustic Music Records”. In November 2015 she won the first prize and the audience prize at the “SAI Acoustic Guitar Competition” in the Czech Republic.
In 2017 Karlijn graduated from the Conservatory in Utrecht (NL) and started with her master studies in “Acoustic Guitar” at the Hochschule für Musik in Dresden (DE), where she receives lessons from well-respected musicians like Thomas Fellow, Reentko Dirks and Stephan Bormann.
Her solo EP “Luna” was released in July 2017 and is an engaging and diverse mix from her solo repertoire that she is playing on tour regularly since 2016.
