Клеменс ван де Вен родился в небольшом городке на востоке Голландии в 1950 году, как младший сын в трудолюбивой семье пекарей. Он начал играть на фортепиано в раннем возрасте. После изучения философии в университете Неймегена, Клеменс упаковал мешок и стал тем, кем он действительно хотел быть: музыкант с настроением "путешествий маньяка". Его музыка раскрывает различные страсти культур и основана на традиционных Ритм & Блюз. Его рычащий голос напоминает Хаулин Вулфа и Тома Уэйтса, и его музыка в том же духе с песнями, которые изображают жизнь после полуночи.
Клеменс записал свои первые два альбома "Live" и "Delivery" с трио под названием Narrow Escape в 1984 - 86 годах. В 1991 году вышел его первый сольный компакт-диск "A little bit of love", который был выбран Music Magazine Maker как лучший независимый CD года. После сольных выступлений Клеманс объединяется с барабанщиком Sjoerd van Bommel. Их сотрудничество продолжалось пять лет, в течение которых они стали очень популярны в Голландии выступая живьём в небольших клубах. С 1999 года Клеменс играл со своей группой, называемой "Vande Ven" или "Vandeven Band". в которую входили: гитарист Гарри Хардхолд (Harry Hardholt), саксофонист Аренд Боумистер (Arend Bouwmeester) и Син Бановик (Sin Banovic) на барабанах. Вместе они выпустили три компакт-диска: "Ticket to paradise", "Off the road" и "Live in Austria", а так-же выступали на знаменитых Голландских фестивалях, таких как North Sea Jazz, Oerol и De Parade и гастролировали за рубежом.

Clemens van de Ven (1950) was born in a small town in the east of Holland, as the youngest son in a hardworking bakers-family. He started playing the piano at a very early age. After studying philosophy at the university of Nijmegen, Clemens packed his bag and became what he really wanted to be: a music-minded travelmaniac. His music reveals different passions and cultures and is based on traditional Rhythm & Blues. His growling voice resembles Howlin’ Wolf and Tom Waits and his music is in the same vein with songs that depict life after midnight.
Clemens van de Ven plays his music the same way he lives and loves life…straightforward and passionately. His talent is as unique as his career. He is a completely self-taught musician, who started playing the piano at the age of seven.
He studied philosophy at the university of Nijmegen and after his graduation, he packed his bag and finally became what he really wanted to be…a music-minded travelmaniac! Clemens has seen every corner of the world and absorbed all the different influences and impressions. His songs reveal all these different cultures, but the backbone of his music is still straightforward Rhythm ‘n Blues. He turns every night into “Such a Night”, one of the key songs on his repertoire.. His powerful pianobeat and his charismatic vocals have turned many a gig into a party, with Clemens giving the audience all he’s got. Because that’s the essence of his playing….all the way and straight from the heart!
Clemens recorded his first two albums with a trio called Narrow Escape ( Live and Delivery). In 1991 his first solo-CD A little bit of Love was released, followed by Is it You which was chosen by Music Maker Magazine as best independent CD of the year. After playing solo for a few years, he joined forces with drummer Sjoerd van Bommel. Their cooperation lasted for five years, during which they became a very popular live-act in Holland. Since 1999 Clemens has been playing with his own band, called VandeVen, featuring guitarist Harry Hardholt, saxophonist Arend Bouwmeester and drummer Sin Banovic. They have made three CD’s together and have played at famous Dutch festivals like North Sea Jazz, Oerol and De Parade and also toured abroad.
