Artist Info

The Postmen

Powered by Audioscrobbler™1. The Postmen is an incorrect name of Dutch hiphop/reggaeband Postmen.

2. The Postmen is a British Oi! band appearing on the 1980 album "Oi! The Album" with the songs "Beardsmen" and "Have a cigar".

3. The Postmen are a 4 piece acoustic/folk band from Switzerland founded in 2009.


1. Postmen was a Dutch Hiphop/Reggae band which had major success in The Netherlands with their award winning debut album Documents (1998). The album was voted one of the 10 best albums ever to come out of the country. They had 2 Top 40 hits with the tracks 'Cocktail' and 'U Wait'. They released a second album 'Revival' in 2001 which also did well however did not reach the heights of their debut album.
Their 3rd studio album 'Era' (2003) was very experimental and did not do so well commercially. This lead to problems within the band and eventually they separated shortly after.
Lead singer Remon Stotijn a.k.a The Anonymous Mis, husband of dutch singer Anouk, continued to work on a 4th album alone no under the name Postman. The album 'Green' was released in late 2006.

3. The beginnings of the group are located at the end of 2008 when Laurent Zito (vocals, guitar and harmonica) and Julien Henchoz (vocals, guitar, bass, and percussion), doing the same computer training, discovered a shared passion for music (particularly that of the 60s and 70s). They decided to form a duo, before being joined a few weeks later by Louise Meynard (cello and vocals). They were later joined in April 2010 by Julien Dinkel (drums, piano, and vocals) to inject more energy into their music.

After some months of work, several original songs were written and instrumentation has expanded to include further instruments, including bass and piano. The influences of such artists as The Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan and Leon Russell are still being felt, particularly through the research of vocal harmonies that has become one of the main aspects of the group. Currently, the Postmen concentrate on their compositions and regularly attend concerts in Geneva and its environs. In July 2010, a demo CD of the band's work was created, available at concerts.
