Myrthe van de Weetering had her first television appearance with violin at the age of five with Jaap van Zweden. From a musical point of view, what she played there was completely right, but she went exactly the wrong way. This deep-rooted idiosyncrasy led her to study jazz violin at the conservatory and, when almost the only woman completed a Music Technology study, followed by a Masters in Composition. She travels around the world with all kinds of different bands including Pierre et les Optimistes with Pierre Laernoes. She played at festivals such as Glastonbury, Lowlands, Cervantino (the largest festival in South America), but also in a sold-out Concertgebouw.

She is a much sought-after arranger for strings for bands and films. Two years ago, she released her first own album Dégoûton vinyl. This album was unanimously praised. This year she is touring with Duncan Laurence, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, for which she wrote string arrangements and heads the string quartet.
