Album Out Now!

„ Vera Naus is een van de jonge opkomende zang talenten, die met geheel eigen repertoire veel facetten van zich laat horen. Zij overtuigd in haar `story-telling`, en door haar brede muzikale palet aan invloeden. Om meteen op je eerste cd al zo´n duidelijk eigen muzikaal profiel neer te zetten, is echt uniek."

Fay Claassen

In the summer of 2017 Vera Naus presents her debut album „Young Heart“.

Ten original compositions show the variety of musical styles that influenced the young singer.

Vera grew up with Pop- and Rockmusic and discovered Jazz when she was fourteen years old. During her studies at the Conservatories of Utrecht and Rotterdam she also got to know the beauty of both Western and Indian Classical music.

„Young Heart“ shows a fusion of all these styles, in which the lyrics lead the listener through personal stories of a young heart in search for happiness in a big world.

Album review (Jazzmagazine "Jazzenzo")


In 2014 the Sebastiaan van Bavel trio released debut-album" As The Journey Begins" and was instantly awarded a prestigious Edison Award. For the new album "Cosmic Dance" the trio, consisting of Sebastiaan van Bavel (piano), Maciej Domaradzki (bass) and Jimmi Hueting (drums), is completed by saxophone player Jasper Blom and singer Vera Naus. This recording holds six original compositions based on the work of Indian poet Sri Aurobindo. By merging the poetry with the jazz-tradition and elements of Indian and Western classical music, this album marks the next episode of the trio’s musical journey.

This band was selected for the Young VIP tour 2018.

Together with my brother Gert-Jan Naus I have set up this project in order to play Jazz and Pop music in different settings. The foundation of the band consists of a duo (vocals & piano) with either my brother or Sebastiaan van Bavel playing the piano. As there are different  needs for each concert,venue or costumer we created the possibility to add other musicians.
