Van Manen began his musical career as the lead singer of the symphonic rock band “Target” (1985-1991). After the breakup of “Target” Ralph started his solo career in 1993. The song “Stay Close”, that he and the brothers Robert and Tommy Riekerk performed, was a huge boost for his performances. The album has it all. From punchy rockers until smouldering ballads, all sung with grit and fire. If you like artists like Mark Williamson, Chris Eaton and Dann Huff, don’t miss this one.
