Femke Weidema started her musical career as a classical accordion player. At 18, she attended the Prins Claus Conservatory in Holland to persue her dream of becoming a composer and classical musician. Upon graduating with a Degree in Compostition Music Production and Sound Design, she received several scholarships to further her development, including a Fulbright scholarship and money directly from the Conservatory.
Her next move was to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, where she received special recognition for her unique style of songwriting. She moved to Los Angeles in 2007. Femke produced an EP with jazz pianist Don Grusin and toured across the U.S. with a duo she created, Beautiful Nowhere. In addition, she assisted and wrote with film composer, Richard Gibbs, on TV shows such as ABC Family’s Ten Things I Hate About You and The Tracey Ullman Show.
