DOUBLE BASS - BASS GUITAR - CELLO - VOCALS
Trui Amerlinck (°1993, Zulte, Belgium) started music at a young age. At the age of six she began playing the cello at the Academy of Music, Word and Dance in Waregem and graduated in the class of Paul Van Egghen. When she was 13 years old, she studied classical double bass with Pieter Lenaerts and afterward with Elleen Vanherpe. In 2008, she discovered a profound love for jazz and immersed herself in it. Trui received her bachelor’s degree in Jazz at LUCA School of Arts Campus Lemmensinstituut, double bass with Jos Machtel. An education that she continued as an Erasmus exchange in the Conservatory of Amsterdam. There she was taught by Frans van der Hoeven and Ernst Glerum. She achieved her master at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp with Nic Thys. Trui decided to improve her bass guitar skills and she went on to attend the pop department of KASK Conservatory School of Arts Ghent with Vincent Pierens & Wouter Berlaen.
She’s currently the bass player of Ivy Falls, An-Sofie Noppe and Satin Dolls (w/ Beverly Jo Scott, Carmen Araujo Santamaria and Patrick Deltenre). Since the spring of 2016, Trui is a member of Tsar B, the newest project of Justine Bourgeus (School is Cool). Beside all this, she is working on her own band, TRVI. She has four, amazing musicians behind her while she's singing and playing the bass the same time.
Trui is still playing the cello too. She recently created her own string quartet, Another String Quartet (ASQ) which performed already in different pop and classical contexts. Last year, they accompanied Tourist LeMC for some big shows. In 2018 they're touring with Ish Ait Hamou.
Trui is also the cellist of the newest project, Oko Yono.
