DVD Flyer

The goal of this cd/dvd is to introduce Sign Language Users including deaf, hard of hearing and foreign hearing public to a quite special Nederland's singer.

December 3, 2002 Fre opened her concert in Amsterdam together with Mindy Brown for the first time to deaf and hard of hearing audiences. The reactions on both sides were extremely positive. "During the break it was clear to see and hear that the audience members especially hearing people were not bothered by the interpretation as many theatres still think but fascinated…many felt that they received a double concert for the price of one ticket…applause was seen and heard from an enthusiastic public."
(Woord and Gebaar, Anja Hiddinga Jan. 2003)

Fre Spigt's album "Beest/Beast" is a combination of hard emotional wrenching rock songs like Flesh and Blood and Grey Mouse. After completing these two songs she breathes deeply and says, "thankfully I got that stuff out, bet we all feel better now". In "One Kiss" she sings erotically and with deep yearning… the album is just full of emotions, furthermore is every song from the heart". (Patrick vd Hanenberg)

Hard-hitting beats such as Liarbeast, (Leugenbeest), are followed by a folksy and pretty escape in The Whole Night, (De Hele Nacht) and the dark and eerie, Flesh and Blood (Vlees en Bloed). In a delicate and transparent One Kiss (Een Kus), music and text come in perfect balance. Seldom do we experience this sort of raw emotion by a Dutch singer. Beest is a new pearl in the crown of a living artist. (Oor Magazine)
