Charly Dean aka Serge Gulikers started his musical career more than 12 years ago on Dutch tv show Idols, where he won 6th place in the final liveshows. He started writing his own music and has been doing so ever since, developing his own musical identity.

Now he is a vocal teacher and professional singer in different bands, working with different genres. But at TEDxMaastricht 2018, you will be able to enjoy his own music, because this is where his heart truly lies: pop songs influenced by all other music styles he is working on daily. You could hear Radiohead or the Beatles, but you could also find some jazz influences in his music.

Serge’s music is his way of expressing himself and sharing his thoughts and feelings. About life, love and how the world goes around.

He is accompanied by the following most talented musicians:

On keys: David Demuynck. Jazz pianist and sound machine.
Drums: David La Mela. Multi-instrumentalist but originally drummer.
Bass: Daniel Vanderhoydoncks. Originally trumpet player but he makes music on whatever instrument you give him.
