"Anouk Stotijn-Teeuwe" (born April 8, 1975, in The Hague) is a Dutch singer. She married Remon Stotijn (aka The Anonymous Mis, frontman of the hip hop/rapband Postmen) on March 16, 2004 and is the mother of three children; son Benjahmin Kingsley (b. April 18, 2002), son Elijah Jeramiah (b. December 5, 2003) and daughter Phœnix Ray (born June 3, 2005).
Anouk got interested in music because her mother was (and is) a blues singer. Anouk initially sang at weddings and parties with the band Shotgun Wedding, prior to meeting Barry Hay of the Golden Earring, a friend of her ex-husband Edwin Jansen. Hay believed Anouk to have talent, and offered to write her some songs, one of which was Mood Indigo; written in collaboration with George Kooymans (also from the Golden Earring).
After she met Bart van Veen, her co-writer, the pair wrote a few songs. On September 5, 1997, she released her second single, Nobody's Wife, which remained at the top of the Dutch music charts for a number of weeks. Her debut album, Together Alone also turned out to be a huge success.
In 1998, Anouk won two awards from Dutch music station TMF (The Music Factory) in addition to an Edison award. Durin...
