Esther Houwaart is Van Beukenstein's concrete of which the sturdy foundation below the Wall of Sound consists. Her roots are in hard-rock and metal, but Esther doesn't discard Classic Rock - on the contrary! Together with Robert-Jan she is the guarantee for the tight and fat sound which has become the trademark of Van Beukenstein.
