Niels Littooij, better known as Nielson, is a Dutch singer-songwriter. He became famous being a contestant in the talentshow "The best singer-songwriter of the Netherlands". It took me quite a while to get used to his voice, because he can sound very nasal. Aside from that he is a great guitarplayer and a pretty good songwriter. As for his singing, he can be a little too addicted to vocal runs for my likings, but he is in fact a much better singer than I thought when I first heard him.

Examples of him singing:



Together with Dutch band Blof:

I have to disagree with you on that. I admit that Nielson isn't one of the best singers around, but I don't think you can compare him to Jan Smit. Nielson at least has a steady voice and nails his vocals live, something I cannot say for Jan Smit. Aside from that their songs are very different. The only thing making me not like Nielson at first is his tone, which just takes some listening to get used to. I also believe his vocals have improved a lot since his auditioning to how they are on his first album. "Beauty en de brains" may be cheesy and annoying, but imo "Mannenharten" is a good song, as are some songs of his new album like "Kop in het zand".

I just mean that their sings are very alike. Also, the first thing that came to my mind when I saw him, was "a skinny Jan"
