Biography I am the Other Person
“I am the Other Person started with a conversation with a friend that I recorded, about what we do when we wake up and how our day unfolds. Later I listened to the recording again and I heard the musicality in his voice, from which music started in my head. These sounds and him talking became the song „John“. The concept formed that I could turn conversations into songs that start with the question: What do you do when you get up in the morning? "` Cause I am the Person“ is a line from one of the recorded conversations. I understood it as: I do what I do because I am me, somebody else does something different because he/she is him/her.“
When I moved to Switzerland from The Netherlands I stopped playing in bands. I still wanted to make music though, so I was looking for ways to give my creative urges some kind of form. I wanted to make music that tells a story. When I got the first song, "John", I knew I had found my vehicle“.
J. van de Vlag makes music under the name "I am the Other Person“. He played in various bands and toured in Germany and France as a background musician for different artists. He’s dutch, living in Switzerland.
