Dutch singer Tim Knol finds his doppelganger

Filed under: Music,Weird by Orangemaster @ 1:53 pm

We’ve written about Dutch singer Tim Knol, a down to earth performer who was the victim of a bad radio prank a few years ago and who has now found his doppelganger.

Knol recently found Daniel Skoglund from Sweden virtually, and funny enough, Skoglund is also a singer with a guitar. Knol posted on Twitter that he had found his doppelganger (see pic).

Skoglund performs under the name Songs of Boda and was just as surprised as Knol about the discovery. Both of them made jokes about their parents possibly getting ‘their lines crossed’. As well, both men make the same kind of singer-songwriter music. Yes, I want a duet soon, too!

They are planning to meet in real life and like each other’s music.

Here’s Tom Knol signing in English:

And here’s Songs of Boda, with Daniel Skoglund:

Listening to the guy next door

Filed under: Music by Orangemaster @ 2:25 pm

Tim Knol is a 20-year-old Dutch singer from Hoorn, North Holland who really looks like the Dutch guy next door, complete with nonchalant lumberjack wear (Neil Young comes to mind) and a no-nonsense Dutch manner. As of late, he’s been playing shows and concerts in the Netherlands and on 18 January he was on a Dutch talk show that breaks Dutch acts, De Wereld Draait Door (linked song starts at 1:42).

The video here above was taped outdoors in guy-next-door style. Tim is playing A Song for You by Texan singer Townes van Zandt.

The question buzzing around is why do people like this guy and his cover music? Besides an obvious good voice and good English pronunciation, what do you think is special about him?
